Weekly Photo Challenge: Rule of Thirds

This week’s photo challenge asks us to share photos using¬†the Rule of Thirds. Well, I’ll drink to that! ūüėČ

The vines had just begun to bloom in the Chianti region of Italy. Soon they’d become delicious wine.

Travel Theme: World Cups

Ailsa’s Travel Theme this week is World Cups, so as¬†one might expect,¬†this Brazilian football fan immediately associated it with one of the greatest sports events in the world:¬†FIFA’s World Cup. The tournament, which happens every four years in June/July, is being hosted by Brazil this time around, and¬†I am¬†here¬†enjoying the excitement and agony of the thirty-two¬†participating national teams and their adoring fans.¬†As the tournament reaches its half point, sixteen teams have been eliminated and the remaining sixteen are going through the knockout phase, with nail-biting matches happening every day. The excitement is only beginning!¬†So, what else could my take on the “World Cups” theme be?

And it is a rather biased one, I’m afraid!
