Unusual Vantage Points


Deb over at Red Shoe Ramblings sometimes posts pictures of things from unusual vantage points. I especially like the ones where she points her camera up from low on the ground. I started doing the same thing. I took the above picture last January at Descanso Gardens. It looks like something out of Dr. Suess.

I went for a walk in Boulder after the rain. The daffodils were all bent down, but they smiled for the camera when I put the camera close to the ground.

I have been rereading Believing is Seeing: Creating the Culture of Art by Mary Anne Staniszewski. By her definition, these photographs are art because I made them to circulate in the mass media!

Go visit Red Show Ramblings. Deb is showing interiors of her own home. It is a bracing antidote to the stultifying sameness of styled interiors in slick magazines. She, and other bloggers, are also showing pictures of their bookshelves!

  3. Thank you so much for posting these amazing pics! I especially like the first one, the angle is really something very unique and makes it look a bit scary - yep, very Dr. Seuss like!
