Perspective… A point of view!

The dictionary states that reflection is the art of drawing a solid object on a two-dimensional surface so as to give the right impression of their height, width, depth, and position in relation to each other when viewed from a particular point, or a particular attitude toward or way of regarding something; a point of view.

Perspective also applies to photography. On my walks I like to shoot from different angles some pointing up to the sky to frame the top of a tree, some from knee level and some shot with the camera on the ground. 

Here are some examples in these left over photos from my last walk in the mountains in San Diego California. 

#1 Look up!

The sky was such a pretty color of blue. I was standing with the camera head high pointing up. I always try to take a looking up photo. 

#2 This plant…

This plant was so pretty, and contrasted against the brown fallen leaves. 

Camera held head high, a hikers perspective. 

#3 The plant..

I squatted to take this one. That is snow on the edges or frost. There were patches of snow still on the ground in places. 

#4 The frozen drop.

I had to get closer to take this one. The camera was held just inches away from the plant. Notice that the drop is not round? I thought it was so neat. 

#5 Luna

I was trying to get a shot of Luna jumping down off of the rocks, but missed the jump.  Then I noticed the plant in the crevice. Do you see it? 

#6 Here it is

Closer, it didn't like the freeze, but was so neat how it grew right out of the rock. 

#7 Closer

It was so plump and fuzzy with the melting snow on it. 

#8 A dead tree.

My son took this one. He set the camera down on the fallen dead tree and focused on its roots or base. 

#9 Same tree

Another click of the same tree, with the camera still sitting on it. My son focused on the fungus with the frost on it, the base is still visible but out of focus. 

He does very well don't you think? 

What do you think?
