Weekly Photo Challenge: Threes


This week the WordPress photo challenge is “threes” as in three photos that tell a story…or a photo with three of something in it…or three angles of the same object…or, and this is what I did, three photos starting from the broad topic and moving to the detail.   There are endless possibilities for great shots that include something of threes.  Design uses the rule of three all the time and you probably use it unconsciously when you’re out taking photos, or designing that kitchen or painting that next masterpiece or just redecorating the living room.

I thought about showing you more of the immediate world around me.  But that would involve snow and I know you’re all tired of snow.  I certainly am.  I wanted something brighter, happier, colorful.  Where to go to find that?  I was thinking about this conundrum during my morning commute which passes, by happenstance, the local nursery.  As in summertime hopes, heat, flowers.  Flowers.  I wonder what’s inside this time of year?

Want to see?  Well, here you go!

A bit of joyful pink to brighten your day!  At the nursery I could pretend, for a few short minutes, at the end of a long harsh winter that spring was just around the corner.  I’m sure it is…

…isn’t it?

Here and here and here are some of my favorite ‘threes’ from others who posted their own creativity for this photo challenge.

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. These orchids are so beautiful! My were blossoming around this time every year, and I’m wondering why don’t they this year. Fantastic pictures, all of them, and the trio is excellent, as well.


  2. When I began to read, I automatically thought of the florist’s rule of arranging in three or fives. How great to see you were aiming in the same direction!


  3. Interesting, isn’t it, that rule of threes. I find myself doing three of things all the time, without giving it any real thought. And the orchids! Oh my! Your photos are obviously scented! Today I went out a rummaged under the leaves in one of my flower beds trying to satisfy the hunger for green. I found – grass! No! I don’t want grass there! But I appreciate that we don’t have snow, and will actively work at wishing yours away.


  4. I particularly like the close-ups, but showing the different distances, what a good idea. P.S. The 4 (?) links to your favorites–actually 3 of them point to the same page.

  7. Just lovely ! Makes me feel warm and happy!


  8. Beautiful orchids! I can just smell and feel the inside of the warm nursery.

    Can’t wait to get my hands dirty again. After this harsh winter, I think the nurseries may be doing a booming business this year. We need color in our lives desperately!


  9. those are a pretty color and a splash of spring


  10. How beautiful, Dawn, and you’re right — we’re ALL tired of snow! I wish it would just go away and let Spring make its appearance. Such interesting detail on these blooms!


  11. Those orchids are lovely! Great take on the theme – thanks for making it a warm take. We’re ready for winter to be over, too. Too bad winter isn’t taking the hint. :-/


  12. We vote on photo one as our favorite
