Patti invites us to change the way of looking at a scene and photograph from different perspectives.
These two shots were taken of the same manhole cover. By simply walking around and getting a different light and angle, an ordinary picture became a dramatic statement shot.
The location is the Distillery District in Toronto. This is a historic site famous for it’s 19th century industrial architecture. Today it’s a restored art and culture hub with restaurants, cafes, shops and galleries. On this particular day, my photographic inspiration was an old Dodge truck.
I always like to take a context shot …
… before zooming in on details.
Sometimes, I like to get in really close. In the process, I lose the perspective of the bigger picture while creating a grander perspective of a very small one.
Many thanks to Patti for this week’s prompt.
