The theme for this week is Story: Perspective
Perspective for the purpose of this challenge is the relationship of objects in the scene. If you really want a challenge this is a good chance to use forced perspective.
Some information on perspective and it’s use in photography can be found here:
If you want to explore forced perspective have a look at this excellent article:

Different perspectives of perspective
A jagging perspective of London. Taken across the Thames from the London Eye. Was spoiled for choice on this one considering where I am. I kept returning though, to this crammed image. Snapped on my phone and altered to create a graphic look.
I lay down under a small children’s slide at a public playground looking up at the slide’s platform. No mean feat actually…the stones poked into me & they were wet!! Lucky no one was around at the time!! I took the photo with my smart phone and just straightened it.
Walking along Collins Street, could not resist one of Melbourne’s (sinking) landmark, the Rialto. I also hadn’t realised that Bank of Melbourne appeared where a nice eating and drinking courtyard used to be… Used the tree branches to frame the shot.
iPhone 6S Plus
Bill Ponsford helped me out this week. He hit it for a six.
Tricky this week! Wanted to take the line up of abandoned shops in Skipton, but couldn’t quite get it wide enough.
Settled for this one instead.
Found this week tough so I took the advice to look up. I was away for work and was wandering past the Adelaide Town Hall when I saw this one
iPhone using the Lightroom app
This was taken lying on my back looking up at a power pylon. I was fairly sure there would be lots of patterns but it was better than I thought it would be
Took lots but I picked this one as the lines were black and the sky had some texture
The road into the darkness.
The Stormtrooper was sent out on a mission to search for the Rebel base and came across this alien life form.
With minimal time and opportunity available I had to snap something thru the windscreen in traffic. Taken on my phone and cropped a bit. Quite pleased from a very rushed shot
For my photo I got my friend sophie to stand in the lounge room whilst I layer on my bedroom floor. I’m the photo you can see part of my rug which is on the ground. I thought it what make the photo look cool
My daily paradise in the office
Under the big wheel looking up. Love this view as it looks so different.
The cricket nets.
Have been quite tied up this weekend so could only take some shots at home. I used the Happy Wanderers in my front yard as the foreground, with the tree across the street adding depth to the picture, The sunlight through the gaps among the leaves created some dramatic effect like flares produced by pointed light sources.
I had all kinds of cool stories involving dogs and kids etc, but as I have neither I struggled to bring them to fruition! I don’t love this photo, but I do like the story behind it – the old church now sheltering in the middle of the tall buildings, and the contrast between the aged brick and the shiny and sleek new generation. Taken on my Canon 550D then tinkered with a bit in whatever the default editing software is on my laptop.
Massive week on holidays, so I’m stoked just to get this in! Snapped it out the car window on my way home. Have loved this QLD. Now but to freezing Canberra.
This majestic and gigantic tree has been thriving in Manuel Antonio national park in Costa Rica for hundreds of years. I estimate its height is at least 50 metres…it seemed so high to me that it almost melds with the sky.
