Carol (Mama) Cormier started a challenge inviting us to post trios of items in pictures. For some reason that has been hard for me to find. Now, whenever I take photographs, I see how I can group them into threes. I’m starting to build my collection.

Saturday, we visited a new friend we met at the Touchmark Car Show. She had many things arranged in threes and I started rudely taking pictures as soon as I walked into her house. She’s a photographer, too and knew I was going to bring my camera to take pictures of their other classic car. (Just providing a defense for my bad behavior.)

Linda made some delicious marmalades for us to try, and had them all set out on her counter. I could tell she was a decorator and was accustomed to photographing still life pictures.

“Trios,” I exclaimed telling her about this photo challenge.

As I started taking pictures, she gently rearranges the bottles.

It seemed trios appeared everywhere I looked.

I’m playing with my new Photoshop subscription. I’m learning about Bridge from Cee Neuner. Today I sprinkled a black filter around the top edges of this photo to block out the background and I cropped it with one quick checkmark. Thank you Cee! 🙂

Going Strong!

    I love your trios, Marsha! When I was a summer student, I worked in a litle gift shop on the Canada/US border. We always had to display small items in groups of 3 (or 5 if really small). Never ever in 2s or 4s! 😀

      That is more artistic. That would be another good place to look for shots of trios. 🙂

      Thanks, Robbie. I credit my new camera – recommended by Cee, my new subscription to Photoshop for Photographers-recommended by Cee, and my new friend, Linda for arranging everything so photogenically. 🙂 That leaves pushing a button to my credit! LOL
