The rule of three applies in meaningful ways to so many areas of everyday life as far back as the three wise men. In nature, land, sea and air are a triad to be reckoned with. Earth, Wind and Fire are Motown icons. Even in the composition of a beautiful photograph, the rule of thirds... Continue Reading →
