When I decided to make photography a serious hobby, I thought I would be doing all black and white. I've always liked B & W best, and you can do your own darkroom thing pretty easily. When I started really sifting through Flickr, though, I found some photographers whose work I love, who take mostly color. So I decided not to be bigoted. I put a color roll in my camera.
Then it snowed. Ouch! Once I got over being bummed that we had snow and I didn't have B & W film, I went out and took my pictures. Turns out I like some of them.
This is the picture as I took it, and the knot hole is dead center. When I got the prints back and realized I'd done that, I cropped the picture several different ways, with the knot hole in the spots suggested by the Rule of Thirds. Didn't like them as much. I don't know if I'm being obtuse or not, but I like the rule breaking picture better.
