Weekly Photo Challenge: Frame

201608-401日本語は後半に
Once in a while I should have discussed photography on the blog because I have posted pictures every time. Frame, what a great subject to talk about it.
Honestly saying I don’t like to use a frame for my photos. It narrows down the canvas, limits a camera position and add one element of the picture in advance. In addition, we enjoy pictures on a screen of computer rather than prints. In other words, we see many layered frames like a screen, an application window, a picture window and a picture itself. Perhaps you remember that iPhone was like a panda when its screen factor was changed (iPhone4 to 5). When you ran some application for older iPhone, you might see a white application color inside a black frame inside a white iPhone.
However sometimes I found me taking a picture with a frame. One of my favorites I took was a image of Nuremburg through a old window glass at night. I missed it but still remember.
A typical framing style I like is found in Ukiyoe pictures. If you love photography, you know, “frame” doesn’t mean the rim of a picture. It must be a typical one but even a small branch as a foreground object can be a frame. Indeed Ukiyoe artists loved to use such expressions and Van Gogh would be one of successors.
Today I chose three different pictures which have no typical frame.

写真を毎回アップしているのだから、たまには写真に関することでも書くべきだろう。「フレーム」良い題材である。
正直、写真でいうところのフレームが好きなわけではない。少ない切り取られた領域をさらに狭めて制限するものであるし、コンピュータスクリーンで見るのが当たり前の今、写真はすでにいくつものフレームが重なっている。
それでも時々、フレームのある写真を撮っていることに気づく。今でもお気に入りの一枚はニュルンベルクの古い窓枠から夜の様子を撮ったものである。
典型的なフレームのスタイルは浮世絵に見られる。それは単なる枠ではなく、例えば木の枝に切り取られた風景であったりする。そんなわけで、今日は、典型的とは言えないフレームを選んでみた。

In response to the weekly photo challenge, Frame by The Daily Post.
