To quote Marie this week's challenger, "..(there's) something about having just the right crop can really bring that something special to a photo." This week's challenge; to crop.
It does force me to look through the lens in a whole new way. I love the photos with close crops, and that's the hardest thing for me to do! I tend to want the whole subject in the picture OR to throw them off balance with lots of space to one side.
So, with that in mind I took these photos from around the house. Above; the rat statue that I received last Christmas.
