The photo challenge for this week was to find a subject and instead of taking a picture from the usual angles, take it directly from above.
This is my contribution (image cropped for blog layout), the top of my head. I literally held the camera as far as I could reach above my head and took the shot. As I couldn’t see the image in the viewfinder I was actually thrilled with the way this turned out. I loved the point of view so much that I often use this photo of myself on my art gallery and website as it is way more artsy than a straight shot.
I also found this photo, which I felt was very apt for the theme. It was was taken on a flight from Toronto and Vancouver, so I thought I would include it. This photograph is free to download at my Morguefiles account.
