"Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the 'play-it-safers', the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary" Cecil Beaton

* This is a collection of images with three as its theme.
* Inspired by a similar gallery by John Armstrong: http://www.pbase.com/gilnockie/three
* Three is the most positive number in symbolism and is also linked with the triangle and the triad.
* In Christian thought, it has a central importance as the doctrine of the Trinity, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
* It expresses all aspects of creation, including birth, life and death; past, present and future; mind, body and soul; and man, woman and child.
* Three is a mystical and spiritual number featured in many folk tales (3 wishes, 3 guesses, 3 little pigs, 3 bears).
* Three is a good number in Chinese culture because it sounds like the word "alive", compared to four that sounds like "death".
* Luck, especially bad luck, is often said to "come in threes", while in Vietnam, it's bad luck to take a photo with 3 people in it.
* Celtic art and literature has long been preoccupied with the number 3.
* In Celtic art, figures often come in threes, creatures have 3 heads, objects repeat 3 times, or a single head might have 3 faces.
* Oak, ash, and thorn were called the fairy triad of trees. Where these three grow together, it is still said that fairies live there.
