|This old barn|
As I pulled up to this particular barn, I realized getting a clear shot would be a bit of a challenge, as the roadside ditch was impassable. The flat, grey light wasn't doing me any favors, either, and the tall wild grasses sealed the deal. So I improvised a little and tried some different framing/composition approaches.
I didn't exactly make lemonade out of lemons, but I salvaged something out of an otherwise cruddy day with lousy sight lines. Maybe it's an allegory for life, that we shouldn't be disappointed when the script gets changed on our behalf by forces we can't even minutely control.
Whatever the case, I thought it would make for a fun Thematic theme. It's called in the foreground, and I hope you're into it.
Your turn: Take a pic that evokes this week's theme - specifically, with something prominently in the foreground. Share it on your blog or website, then leave a comment here letting folks know where to find it. Visit other participants to spread the photographic joy and learning, and feel free to share more photos as the week wears on. If you're new to the Thematic thing, click here and all will be explained. Have fun with it!
Oh, that is a wonderful picture.
Some trees got in the way of my sunset.
Sweetly done, Carmi. You make me hear breeze and muse. Is that an insect buzzing?

Items in the foreground may improve your shot or it may be that it's the foreground you are interested in.
Hey, Carmi, found one! :-)
Ooops - this time I'll put my link in...
This is going to be a great theme - here is my post :)

Wow Carmi, your photo is mysteriously sharp, but your backstory to it all even finer. I confess I read this about four times! Your truest picture is within your words. Here is mine

Oh, and I forgot to say I love your picture in this post, especially the sense of motion from the grass in the front. My mind sets the stalks swaying in the wind.
Beautiful photo! And a great reminder of some warmer weather! Here are a few of my photos:
