Weekly Photo Challenge: Frame

This week’s challenge is FRAME, featured by Nancy Thanki.  Here are a few FUN FRAMES.

Frame
Miniature exhibit of the SRO, single-room occupancy hotel room, for Chinese families in San Francisco in the past. Not realizing I was capturing a selfie in the miniature mirror, this photo was captured at the Chinese Historical Society of America Museum.
Frame
An attempt to take a photo of an inside classroom failed due to the outside glare. Instead the woman in the hat was captured framed by the reflection of my hand in the window, blocking the glare.
Frame
Using the arch of the front part of the hotel as a frame, a photo of the fountain and bicycle was captured.
Frame
Reflective sun glasses for sale at a vendor’s booth offered a frame for the kids jumpee across the way.
