Photoproject, week 3

This week's a bit disappointing in terms of pretty photos, but it was educational. When I frame a photo, I've always tried to make the image as coherent as possible, chopping out any distractions. To be honest, it probably stems from wanting to use photos as props in games - if I take a picture of a castle, then I try to chop out all the phone wires, telephone polls, anoraked tourists etc. However, I'm realising that it's not always the best approach, that I need to be more willing to include contrasts and incongruities.
