Photo of the Week – 17 July 2011



This Week’s Photo

Due to the privilege that was attending the Salters’ Chemistry Camp in the facilities of the University of Bath, the event certainly earned the right to be represented in this week’s edition of Photo of the Week. (Also, as it was a three-day event, it was really the only thing I did this week of particular notability.) This photo was picked above all of the 77 others because I like the framing of it; whilst I’m no photography expert, I do know that it follows the so-called ‘rule of thirds’ – Pyrex test tubes are on either side of the photo, general scientific clutter at the bottom, students’ faces and gloved hands at the top, and the focus of the photo lies on the centre, the test-tubes being experimented with.

You can read my full recount from my trip to Bath earlier this week here.

About ‘Photo of the Week’

Every Sunday, I post a photograph taken at some point during the previous seven days. I know that many of the photos featured will not be of enviable quality or stunningly artistic composition, but then the aim is mainly to give me something to nostalgically look back over at the end of the year.
