Weekly Photo Challenge: An Unusual Point of View (2)

This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge:  challenge yourself to rethink your ideas about what subjects are appropriate, and then challenge yourself again to find an unusual perspective on your subject.


This morning I tried to get unusual from my front loggia.  Those of you who follow my blog have seen different angles of the courtyard and roofs in front of my house.  Here I’ve tried to get a different view.

First of all: chimneys!


Now what I would have liked to do was get a close up through the chimneys, which I can see, but which my poor little Olympic can’t handle because I’d need to zoom to get the shot.  It has a zoom setting but the whole picture goes out of focus.  I got a similar effect though by cropping the photograph.

This is from a slightly different angle, you can see part of my roof here and that box is a winch we rarely use now, but is handy to get heavy objects up to the fourth floor where we have our living area.

morning shot

This shot was taken from the stone ledge where I keep my plants and zen balancing rocks.  I got down on my poor knees to take it.  You can see some flowerless marigolds just beyond the out of focus stone ledge and then onwards towards my neighbor’s courtyard through the protection wall around another neighbor’s terrace.

This is a similar shot, taken from near my plant on the stone ledge.

Hope you’ve enjoyed looking at these as much as I’ve enjoyed taking them!

Have a nice day and before you go, have a look at some other great participants!
