A Different View

If you wander around the web, you will see some of the same photographs over and over again of popular travel spots.  Lately, I have been trying to take the typical shots just so I have them and then try to make a conscientious effort to take photographs from a different angle or view.  I was so excited to see this photo in my husband’s collection of photographs from his No Girls Allowed boy’s summer camp trip to Brazil.  Totally different from the shots that he brought home last year.

    Love the perspective!

    Very cool Jen (and Josh!) I love the way you think and try to capture things from a different perspective – both in your photography and the way you live your life! 🙂 Nicely done.

    When I was in Rio and we trekked up to Christ the Redeemer, it was so foggy, we couldn’t even see his big toe! Occasionally, the fog would part just enough to see his face, and it truly was a holy experience! (Though made for difficult photos!)

    Very cool shot! I have to admit I giggled though when imagining what this pic would look like had it been a Roman God statue or some other naked structure. I know, horrible mind, but it seems like I’ve seen too many un-clothed statues on my travels lately.

    I love the perspective in this shot. I especially like shooting from behind or below something if I can.

    And thanks for linking to my article about taking photos for blogs 🙂
