My husband and I were chuckling recently over our differences when we go on photo walks (sometimes we're even able to take photo walks together like in the old days, when family are visiting to keep an eye our seven year old). He will be up trees, hanging over cliff edges, and clambering up rocky hills to get his shots. I on the other hand am most often crouched down - or lying down - to capture the world from the perspective of my feet. It's a vantage point that I, at almost six feet tall, don't often get to see unless I make a point of gettin' down, camera in hand and mud on my knees and elbows.
The photo above is a perfect example, taken while my hubby traipsed down a steep slippery path on the Northern California coast while I attempted to get low enough to position the light somewhat behind the amazing colour of these ice plants.
And speaking of ice, although it was a chilly day when I took my photo, nothing could compare to the nose-nipping frostiness Tracy K. must have been experiencing as she snapped this bokeh-licious piece of gorgeousness recently.
Thanks for helping feed my love for worm's eye view shots in the flickr pool this week.
