Again the series of posts devoted to photography as visual storytelling have inspired me to start thinking about this week’s photo challenge, An Unusual POV in advance of the challenge. I often look at photos taken from strange positions and like how they look, and regularly end up lying down on the ground to take photos.
This week Lynn Wohlers wrote about taking photos from an unusual angle, and thought about how I often do this when photographing somewhere I regularly visit and photograph, the most obvious being my garden!
Langstone bridge is a place I photograph every time I visit, I like how the lines of the bridge draw my eyes along it, and how the view changes with the weather, the tides and the time of day.
This time my eyes were drawn initially by the mooring piles, sticking out of the mud at awkward angles
Then something else caught my eye..
Earlier in the day this trolley had been barely visible, but in the early evening the sun lit up the beauty of the colours of the long forgotten resident of the beach, I had to crouch down in the slippy mud to get the right angle, and the blue sea in the background. It would have been very embarrassing if I had fallen over, but luckily I managed to stay upright!!
