You don’t need a framework. You need a painting, not a frame. – Klaus Kinski
I guess most of us love things framed to help us follow lines and reveal the artist’s intentions with his/her work. At least if we put them on our wall at home or go to an exhibition. Now Amy challenges us to consider framing – and in my selection (from Stettin all except the header) I try to show some very different ones as well. An important thing to remember is, that a frame doesn’t have to look like a frame, and it does not have to apply to the whole picture either.
I’ve often noticed that we are not able to look at what we have in front of us, unless it’s inside a frame – Abbas Kiarostami
Thank you for all your inspiring Angles last week! – and thank you, Amy, for a beautiful set of frames and for all the fun with this challenge!

Unique gallery … all from Stettin – my favorite thas to be the post office, I have hardly looked through all my shot. The restaurant’s images are magnificent. Excellent presentation.
So glad we went! Loved that post office too – and the vaults were not at all bad to sit and eat below…and the food…delicious.
A Fantastic city … in so many way. I would like to go back in a couple of years time.
I bet you do!
Hi, Ann-Christine: my favourite picture in your post is the endless reflections through the long mirror.
OK – so happy to hide behind the lens!
Lovely selections, Leya. It’s difficult to pick one.
Your choices are unique to the others I’ve seen.
Well done, Isadora 😎
Isadora, I am so glad you liked them – and my goal was to present a difference in choices! Thank you!
I really like that photo of you 🙂
Thanks! I am happy to be hidden behind the camera!
That’s how I feel too 🙂
fun take on the challenge and the European state of mind slideshow was a top takeaway for me today
😀 Glad you had fun with it – and the European state of mind was in a great place to eat!
These are really lovely, the first one, bueno!
Glad you like it – it was my favorite stop on my way to and from work for many years!
Nice selection and variety in your choices for this week!!
Glad you enjoyed my try for variety! Thank you!
I like them
I particularly like the first image. Not just the framing but the colours too.
Thank you – I love that place and passed it every day on my way to work.
Stunning variety of images, Ann-Christine. ❤ The views of the different layers of the restaurant's architecture are amazing. May I ask where this is?
Glad you like them! This restaurant is in Stettin, old town, Poland. Marvelous food as well.
Thank-you for letting me know. 🙂
You are welcome!

A succession of beauty, Ann-Christine! At the first, I just stopped and stared. A feast 🙂 🙂
So glad you love it too, Jo!
really stunning photographs 🙂
So glad they resonated with you!
These are lovely photos. The first one is the most immediately compelling, but all reward you if you give them a second – and a third – glance. I love the intrigue offered by the staircase photo. What lies at the top…? And I love the contrast between the classical architecture and the Ferris wheel..
Thank you, Margaret, I tried to vary the possibilities, for everone to find something. I am glad you found them interesting!
All are compelling, but it’s the first one that moves me. Quietly.
Thank you, Michael. I love it – it was a favorite stop of mine when driving to work. In fact I have not visited since those days…time to go again…
Great frames Ann-Christine. The mirror photo is my favourite but then again I love the ferris wheel and the slideshow of that wonderful building. 🙂 🙂
Well – glad you liked so many of them! I too tried variety!
These are great photos, Ann-Christine. Each photo is unique in its own way. I love the slide show!
Happy you like them, Miriam! And those old vaults are really a treat!
I can see that, Ann-Christine!
I love these responses to this challenge. In your photos you have often used light at a ”frame” to guide our eyes to what you have as the central object. Nice!
Thank you for telling me about the light! Maybe I do this a bit without noticing…how often I do it. But Light is a major thing in photography. A lovely comment, Anne.
Thank you for the uniqueness you have inspired with your photography. I particular love your frames, inside your frame, inside your frames.
Thank you for a lovely comment! It makes me happy to think I have inspired you, because that is a goal with my images too. ♥ And that bathroom with all the frames – is that the one you mean? Yes…always bring your camera into bathrooms!
hahaha. yes. there are some pretty interesting bathrooms here in the southwest too. Bu the last series of images can also be frames in frames. And you are welcome…
Love the KasyListy and the staircase….and the header image,A C
Thanks, Sue…and what is a KasyListy?
No idea – look at your photos…..
Amazing shots – that bathroom one mystifies me! All the architectural ”frames” work so well. Great choices for this week. So much beauty is captured 🙂
Happy you liked the variety! Thanks! So…always bring your camera into bathrooms ;-D
HA! Good idea 🙂
These are all marvelous Ann-Christine. How very clever you were to see the fantastic shot in a simple bathroom!!! Your quotes this week are also truly perfect for the challenge
Thank you, Tina. Loved that bathroom…glad you liked it too! I have only been in such frames once before – in a lobby.
A beautiful variety of frames Ann-Christine, I especially love the natural frame in your first image 🙂💖🍃 xxx
Thank you, Xenia, I love it too. I used to drive past there twice a day when I still worked as a teacher. A lovely place all seasons.
W.O.W. these framing shots… The b&w is stunning, shooting in a lady’s room (I’m guessing), blew me away… Thank you for the slides. I so enjoy this set of framing. Thank you, Ann-Christine!
Thank you, Amy, for a lovely comment – and the challenge is super for developing photography thinking.
I really like your selections for this prompt. I especially like the one with the Ferris wheel in the background. You’ve highlighted multiple frames captured in that photo, such exquisite composition. You’ve inspired me to look at framing from a new perspective!
Well, Shelley – then I am very glad to have inspired you! It is not always the intention comes through!
I find it inspiring just seeing what you come up with for a post. You’re very creative!
We are here in the blogosphere, aren’t we😉
Yes, we are! 🙂
Loved the pics Leya. The stairs are awesomely captured. I also loved the little quote in the beginning. It’s so important to focus on the painting, not the frame!
So glad you loved them, Sonia! Thank you for a fine comment!
Great pics, Leya 😁 Love the big wheel through the columns!!!
Thank you – and multiple frames are fun.
