Using the frame to express meaning does not always involve all four outside edges of an image. We can also frame or enclose a subject within a picture itself by creating an internal boundary, which can guide the eye to the subject as well as express an idea. For example, in this image of two monks passing through a temple compound, I created an additional two-sided frame within the four edges of the image itself. I placed a long white wall, topped by a long row of fearsome golden Nagas – Buddhist Serpent Gods – deeply stacked along the left side of the picture. At the end of that wall is a small building with a triangular gable. I moved the camera to align the outside edge of that long wall with the left edge of the building. The monks were walking back and forth along a pathway between the end of the long wall and the small building, as they worked on maintenance chores. I photographed numerous monks as they moved along this path, and finally was able to relate two of them within a single instant of time. The towering golden wall of Nagas complements the vivid colors of the monk’s robes, yet also dwarfs them, creating scale incongruity. The tall frame echoes the upright posture of the monk at right. More importantly, the frame within the frame pulls the eye into the picture to effectively express the glory and scale of the setting these simple monks inhabit.
