The penultimate week of the Smartphone Challenge has the topic of ‘food’.
There’s a (relatively) new boulangerie/patisserie in the village. The baguettes are great, as are the quiches, and last week I tried, for the first time, their Rhum Baba – with overtones of Black Forest Gateau.
It was amazing – even better than it looked. Shouldn’t be allowed.
I’ve managed to stay with this Smartphone Challenge on a weekly basis all year so far. Some of the topics have been – well, let’s just say ‘esoteric’ shall we? However, Week 47 is an absolute lulu:
“The rules of thirds is so popular because it is so versatile. This week use the rule of thirds to show emotion”
Now, even a hack like me knows about the rule of thirds, but to use that to convey emotion just makes no sense to me. You can certainly portray emotion in a photographic image, but the rule of thirds is surely incidental to that.
Anyway, here’s a picture of a cat asleep on a sofa. The emotion is irritation at such a daft challenge this week. Hrrumph.
