The Power of Three
Threes are all around us.
Mother / father / baby; Body / Mind / Soul; three wise men; ABC/123; three blind mice; three musketeers; the three Stooges; the list goes on and on....
The number 3 represents trinity, great strength, completion, creativity, or the ability to create, as well as the combination of physical, mental, and spiritual.
Within photography, one of the very first things we learn is the "Rule of Thirds" and how arranging elements in a composition along an imaginary grid of thirds makes for a balanced and pleasing image.
For the next open Community Photography Theme, we are going to tune into the power of three. What three elements could you combine for the image? Does setting these three items into the Rule of Thirds bring more tension or ease to the photo? How might you combine or represent the physical, mental and spiritual combination within a photographic image?
This is my submission for the latest Am3 theme : "The Power of Three"... look at the posture, the attitude being presented to the public as if to counter a potential threat (rioting or general malcontent from marchers at the G20) with an even bigger threat that is sanctioned by law. It is easy to see not a man, a son, a father, a brother, but only a uniform. It is easy to see the power and strength that these officers derive from each other, doing what is their difficult job. These are the complexities of life, compounded when millions of people share limited space in fast-paced locations.

I always love seeing things through the eyes of kids and today having 3 is better yet.
ALSO - the young lady with all the hair yesterday is the one in the pink dress. She donated a lot of that hair to a charity for kids with cancer to be turned into wigs.
This is oldest structure in Federal Way WA. Built by John Barker who was born in 1840 and the cabin was built in 1880’s. For my friends all over the world that may not be old but this is a comparability new State – remember Washington State did not become a state until 1889.

This stunning 19th century window designed by Edward Burne-Jones and made by William Morris is typically Pre-Raphaelite. The window at Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford, depicts Faith, Hope & Charity, a group of Christian martyred saints.
Their mother is said to have been Sophia (Greek for Wisdom); though Sapientia (Latin for Wisdom) is also mentioned in some accounts but not as their mother. According to the Catholic Encyclopedia, these were, in fact, two groups bearing by coincidence the same names.
The names are also the words designating the three key Christian virtues mentioned in the Apostle Paul's First Epistle to the Corinthians.

This is my submission to the theme The Power of Three. These 3 colors, red, green and blue, or RGB, mean a little bit of knowledge already acquired but mostly still a lot to learn (what the heck are channels?!)...

"Völkerfreundschaft" - A sculpture by the artist Wolf-Eike Kuntsche (1986) at the Prager Street in Dresden, Germany. Viewed from below.
My submission for the Power of Three - theme.
Here´s a total view of this sculpture - somehow I failed to do one, the background was not very appealing from any angle I guess.
