Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #60: Framing the Shot

You don’t need a framework. You need a painting, not a frame. – Klaus Kinski

I guess most of us love things framed to help us follow lines and reveal the artist’s intentions with his/her work. At least if we put them on our wall at home or go to an exhibition. Now Amy challenges us to consider framing – and in my selection (from Stettin all except the header) I try to show some very different ones as well. An important thing to remember is, that a frame doesn’t have to look like a frame, and it does not have to apply to the whole picture either.

You don’t buy a Picasso because you love the frame – Joss Whedonm

Photography is about finding out what can happen in the frame. When you put four edges around some facts, you change those facts – Garry Winogrand

What counts isn’t the frame, it’s what you put in it – Otto Preminger

I’ve often noticed that we are not able to look at what we have in front of us, unless it’s inside a frame – Abbas Kiarostami

  1. Unique gallery … all from Stettin – my favorite thas to be the post office, I have hardly looked through all my shot. The restaurant’s images are magnificent. Excellent presentation.

  2. Stunning variety of images, Ann-Christine. ❤ The views of the different layers of the restaurant's architecture are amazing. May I ask where this is?

  3. These are lovely photos. The first one is the most immediately compelling, but all reward you if you give them a second – and a third – glance. I love the intrigue offered by the staircase photo. What lies at the top…? And I love the contrast between the classical architecture and the Ferris wheel..

    • Thank you, Michael. I love it – it was a favorite stop of mine when driving to work. In fact I have not visited since those days…time to go again…

  4. Great frames Ann-Christine. The mirror photo is my favourite but then again I love the ferris wheel and the slideshow of that wonderful building. 🙂 🙂

    • Thank you for telling me about the light! Maybe I do this a bit without noticing…how often I do it. But Light is a major thing in photography. A lovely comment, Anne.

    • Thank you for a lovely comment! It makes me happy to think I have inspired you, because that is a goal with my images too. ♥ And that bathroom with all the frames – is that the one you mean? Yes…always bring your camera into bathrooms!

  5. These are all marvelous Ann-Christine. How very clever you were to see the fantastic shot in a simple bathroom!!! Your quotes this week are also truly perfect for the challenge

  6. A beautiful variety of frames Ann-Christine, I especially love the natural frame in your first image 🙂💖🍃 xxx

  7. W.O.W. these framing shots… The b&w is stunning, shooting in a lady’s room (I’m guessing), blew me away… Thank you for the slides. I so enjoy this set of framing. Thank you, Ann-Christine!

  8. I really like your selections for this prompt. I especially like the one with the Ferris wheel in the background. You’ve highlighted multiple frames captured in that photo, such exquisite composition. You’ve inspired me to look at framing from a new perspective!

  9. Loved the pics Leya. The stairs are awesomely captured. I also loved the little quote in the beginning. It’s so important to focus on the painting, not the frame!
