Beyond. In Morocco, I snapped this photo of a tower. Though I focused my camera on the tower, it wouldn’t have been half as interesting without all of the houses, roofs, textures, colors, and action happening beyond the tower. Hopefully your eye was drawn to the rest of the picture as I hoped it would be. 

Do you have a photo which invites the viewer to look beyond? Are there hidden depths in the background? Is the focal point just a framing for the rest of the picture? If it’s not clear why we should look beyond, tell us! Lead us through the story in your photo by Sara Rosso on January 18, 2013
