A Photo a Week Challenge: Perspective

perspective_nmp

I love perspective shots. The first time I went to England, I probably took more pictures of hallways, side streets, and archways than the friends I traveled with (I wish I was kidding about this). In art classes in elementary school, I always drew the corner of the building with vanishing points on each side. To my credit, I wanted to be an architect, along with a free-lance photojournalist for the National Geographic Society magazine. Perspective shots can be fun to find, fun to photograph, and fun to edit, so that you get just the right angle and focus in your image.

Here are a few of photos from that first trip to England. Just more proof that I might need some professional help.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Crowd

Crowd at the Globe

While in London, we caught a performance of The Comedy of Errors at the Globe Theatre. The show was sold out, but I was still surprised at how many people were willing to stand through the whole performance in the “groundling” area (our seats were under the covered area on the first level — amazing!). In most theaters in America, the groundling area is filled with seats and called “the orchestra section” and a seat there costs as much as in the first two rows of the balcony, known as the dress circle or lodge (depending on how posh-posh the theater is). If you’re willing to stand (albeit a few feet or sometimes merely inches away from the action on stage), the price of your ticket drops dramatically. However, this production was 2-1/2 hours long. Not for my feet. I snapped this photo during the interval (aka as intermission). The audience was well behaved and enthusiastic throughout the performance.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Endurance

Tower of London from Execution HillThe Tower of London was built in 1066 AD. And while it has endured well over the centuries, I picked this picture because of the portion of Hadrian’s Wall (on the left of the picture). The wall was started in 122 AD and the parts of it that are still standing are some of the most visited tourist sites in Northern England.
