Weekly Photo Challenge: From Above

From The Weekly Photo Challenge: Above. Change your perspective on something. Find a subject and instead of taking a picture from in front of, at an angle, to the side, or from behind, take it directly from above! 

With Sara’s directions in mind I went outside looking for something that I don’t usually see from above.   I found a lot of weeds, rocks and some small flowers but I’m used to looking down on these things and my goal was to find a new view within my familiar surroundings.

From Above

Why does this view surprise me?  Well, this is the lower section of a broken fountain/waterfall in my front yard and it’s always full of green, slimy water and plant debris.  It wasn’t until I came right up to the edge and looked down that the water reflected the beautiful blue sky and canopy of green leaves rewarding me with a much different image from my usual view.  Maybe I should reconsider our plans to pull it out when we re-landscape this area in the next few months…

  1. The things we discover when we change our perspective! Sounds like you had fun with this challenge! 🙂

      1. I enjoy the challenge for the same reason, the challenge of changing how I see the world around me. And thanks, I am feeling better. Everyone’s photos have vastly improved my mood! 🙂

  2. LOVE this shot!! It took me a minute to orient myself when looking at it, which made the shot that much more dynamic. So cool.
