Lens-artist’s Photo Challenge #86: Change your perspective

Just sneaking this post in before #87 turns up later. Trouble is, I haven’t really given it enough thought.

I quite often go for the low perspective, as here at Selinunte in Sicily in order to focus our attention on the flowers:

Wild Flowers at Selinunte, Sicily

…and at Agrigento, to get a sense of the imposing size of this ruin, look up:

Sometimes, if I am high up, I like to change my perspective on a scene, and take an image from above, as I did here, which seemed to bring out the shadows of the people:

  1. This looks a pretty good attempt to me. Like you, I love getting a low perspective on flowers. I was in York on Thursday and my friends thought they were accompanied by a mad woman, squatting down to get the municipal primulas centre stage with the Minster as background.

  2. You always have interesting perspectives, Sue! I learned from you to use the above to get interesting shadows.

  3. Somehere, I have some prints of photos ‘looking up’, taken at temples in Egypt. One of these days, I should try to remember where they are. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. Sue – what happened to my comment? Here it is again. Always love your interesting perspectives. I learned from you to take the above perspective to get interesting shadows.

  5. Hi, Sue. I love your Agrigento shots. We were there years ago, but my photos of the trip were sadly lacking. It’s wonderful to see some good ones!! I’m glad your post arrived just in time!!

      Yay! One was Agrigento, the other Selinunte…sadly, I saw very little of the latter because of problems walking. But I got one decent shot!

  6. Great perspectives. Love the Agrigento shot.

  7. Way to sneak in before #87 Sue. Loved your flowers!

    • Sue

      Thanks, Tina! I had wanted to get some flowers amid the ruins, but they were largely conspicuous by their absence in that month, until I spied this clump…..

  8. So what have you been up to that you haven’t had time to think? 🤗💕

  9. Really good shots, Sue. Love those wild flowers. 🙂
