Photo Contest: Going Low

PhotographyPosted by Staaan

In the second contest, let's deviate from taking our photographs standing up. This time we're taking photos from a low position.

Get on your tummy, lay on your back, or squat down. Get that camera as low as you can and take a photo. Think of how a bug would see the world!

Patty, it is so nice to see your work here again. This photo makes me sad for this area is very empty now due to COVID but with time it will come back to "normal" (won't it). Everything works for me in this image and it pulls on my heart strings.

This shot was taken from my phone, Samsung note 10+ and yes, not taken from the ground as it supposed to because I had the phone set on the floor with a timer set on. This is me in the picture taken at a local museum.
Thank you for your comments :)
