The Art Of Looking Down
Quite by chance, I came across this article, which may give us some ideas for this month’s theme…February 13, 2014 at 2:34 pm #5757

I’ve had my winter break from photography for a couple of weeks.
Ian, your first photograph certainly has an unusual view point. I this it illustrates the issue of showing a 3D object in 2D. The pointed end of the wood obviously has 4 sides, but lit as it is, some may think it has two side with a line if you know what I mean.
The second shot also has an unusual view point. to me it’s a well balanced shot of contrasts. the black and white, the smooth panel and the textured hair.
The photo of the houses is a bit more conventual. It has a compression effect on the houses and plenty of depth.i like the way it leads in from house to house.
In the shot of the bins I ask myself why most of the handles have been put against the wall. Surely it would make them easier to handle if the handles were pointing out. I know that’s not a photographic comment, but the fist thing I thought when I saw it!
I like the low angle of the church. It’s difficult to handle the high contrast. The gravestones in the foreground give it depth and I like the composition of the church.
Today’s good weather inspired me to get out with my camera again so I dropped into Keele University and took a few snaps of a staircase for this assignment. One subject can look so different from different view points. I think all of us would handle this differently. Let me know what you would have done differently.February 16, 2014 at 7:27 pm #5787
Very interesting comparison of views of the stairs Pete. It has made me think. I love how the shadow caused by the rails adds to the image in each example. Of Ians I like the hair best although I am not keen on the background.February 16, 2014 at 8:22 pm #5789
Peter >>> Thanks for your comments. I too was struck by the odd way the bins looked as though they were standing with their backs to the wall!
I like the shadows in your photographs of the stairs, especially in the first two, where they suggest abstract stair carpet. Good range of viewpoints in this set.
In answer to your question, I guess I might have considered shooting down the stairs, from the top or from part way up.February 16, 2014 at 11:17 pm #5790
DON”T KNOW IF THIS IS a point of view–or a point to view.February 16, 2014 at 11:52 pm #5793
Definitely a rear view Ken!February 17, 2014 at 8:05 am #5794
Yep, definitely a point of view, Ken! (Erwitt had better watch out!)February 17, 2014 at 8:11 pm #5803
Many thanks for your comments folks.
Well spotted Ken. I like the humour in it.February 19, 2014 at 4:45 pm #5810
The first image IAN is qite catchy. At first appearing to be a log lying down and a scale of a large log. Then it seems to be looking down at a fence post. But the neatly sawn top with the beautiful wood grain suggests a close up of just that top would be a good subject–perhaps when sunny hold something to cast a shadow of interest on it.Nice that.February 20, 2014 at 9:35 am #5815
Thanks, Ken. (Ah, if only we started getting sunny days!!!)February 27, 2014 at 7:29 pm #5868
