It’s amazing how different things can look depending on our location. This week’s challenge is to find a unique perspective from above. This was taken at the State Capitol Building in Austin, Texas. We were on the fourth floor of the rotunda and looked down to the crowd milling around on the main floor.
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO THAT ARE TAKEN FROM ABOVE YOUR SUBJECT.
Have fun experimenting with heights and different angles. Then blog them and post a link to your masterpieces here.
Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.
Here’s how it works:
1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.
3. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

Stunning perspective, Nancy. I love the mix of colours at the bottom, created by the clothes people are wearing. 🙂

Never too late!
I have nothing for this. I’m usually looking up, not down, at the world. I will have to work at altering my perspective!
Have fun with it. It’s always good to look at things in a different way. 🙂
Here is my entry for this week. I like your photo!

It has taken me 13 hours to download these 3 pictures to my blog! I’m at the beach with a verrrrrry slow connection! Thanks to forgottenman’s ruminations for finally letting me email these to him so he could download them to my blog. Where there’s a will— Judy
