The Willows, Concord, CA – Project 365

Another Tuesday at The Willows Shopping Center in Concord for lunch with some colleagues. I took the opportunity to experiment a bit more with taking photos in the Portrait format.

As I discovered yesterday, framing is much more difficult. My approach today was to use a wall to one side of the photo to be used to add perspective in the framing of the elements in the center. It worked out well for photo # 2, photos 1 & 2 are OK, but I wish the wall should have been leaning in a bit more. The last photo was taken for fun.
