Welcome to CLIQUE!

I can trace my love of photography back three generations, to the early 1900s and my paternal great-grandfather, Henry Mattson. I have a really cool photo that he took of the old family homestead in Minnesota, sometime before 1910. According to family history, Grampa Mattson frequently took photos of his world - the people and places that he loved.

It warms my heart to know that this love of photography didn't skip any generations as it passed down to me! I am blessed to have such a legacy and I hope to pass it on to my own children and grandchildren some day.

I experience a physical and spiritual thrill whenever the Lord shows Himself in His marvelous creation around us and in the people I meet. My dream vacation would be to spend a year or two just traveling around the US, stopping at little out of the way places and photographing the interesting characters and the beauty of nature to be found along the way - those things that draw me closer to GOD and help point others to Him, too.

P*S*B - Oct 12-18 ~ "Rule of Thirds"

This week's challenge is the "Rule of Thirds" ~ I am submitting this photo of Jacey in his cute little hat, but does it even qualify as a "3rds" photo? His body fills most of the frame, but it's his face and hat that draws the eye and they are in the upper third of the frame, so...opinions? Also, I am including both the color and B&W versions here - please let me know which one you think looks better!

TFL ~ kimB


I will upload more "3rds" photos during the week...

Kim, great shot! I can't decide what I like best, so I guess I love them both! Great for the challenge and I love the sharpness with depth of field in these.

Forgot to comment on which I liked best..........love them both. Somehow I think I might favor the color, only because of that sweet little face drawing me in.
