From A Dog’s Point of View

A change in perspective is always a good thing, especially when it comes to photography. Sometimes all it takes to go from “the same old thing” to something spectacular is to shoot from a viewpoint that people aren’t used to seeing. Of course a wicked sky and a little bit of post processing never hurts anything either, as you can see in this photo by Flickr user dogbert8u:

As a tall person (6’4″), I have a tendancy to always look down on things. I have to force myself to remember this while I’m shooting because some of the most interesting shots come from simply looking up. Look up!

    cool shot! we did something similar on our last trip to the mall … but we took pictures of us looking down with the monument in the back. this camera is MUCH better though.

    I love the harsh, gritty effect on the marble from the post-processing.

    (By the way, don’t forget that Flickr Terms of Use require that posting of images hosted on Flickr be linked back to the original Flickr photo page.)

    Thanks, Paulo, I’m glad you like the photo.

    As for linking back to the original photo, I alway give credit to the photographer and link back to their photostream which (IMO) is better than linking back to only one photo.
