Sunday Stills: Rule of Thirds

Mine reminded me of . . . Sleeping Beauty by the Grimm Brothers...

"Then one day a prince was traveling through the land. An old man told him about the belief that there was a castle behind the thorn hedge, with a wonderfully beautiful princess asleep inside with all of her attendants.
His grandfather had told him that many princes had tried to penetrate the hedge, but that they had gotten stuck in the thorns
and had been pricked to death.

"'I'm not afraid of that," said the prince.
'I shall penetrate the hedge and free the beautiful Brier-Rose.'

"He went forth, but when he came to the thorn hedge, it turned into flowers.
They separated, and he walked through..."
