My third photo is from the desert with a beautiful multi-armed Saguaro as the focus point. At first I saw again the cross formula with the cactus as the perpendicular and the rocks as the longitudinal. Also the middle rock leads me to another formula called the balance-scale formula where you have a dominant center of interest with similar masses and shapes distributed somewhat equally on both sides. And then I saw the diagonal formula and I could see the lines very plainly.!
With color added to the sky you can see the diagonal coming in from the left. What do you think? See photo & drawings in "my photos" WALDA

Day 4 is Cleator General Store way out in the desert. I'm really attracted to the rectangles and the pattern. So I brought out my prismacolors in greys and went to work. pictures are in "my pictures" Some day I will figure this out & get them here. REALLY!!
