what you see


What you see changes depending on your point of view, we learn that through photography and it's a life lesson we can take with us. Ever since I wondered what the world looks like from a flower's point of view, the "down low" perspective has been one of freedom and play for me. I love how things look different, the details you see. I would have never noticed the painstaking paint job that had been done on these steps without getting down low. The love and care, and the little imperfections of a few stray strokes - it tells me something of the person who lives there.

In faithruckus' photo, I loved how the "down low" perspective changed her image to one that is more about line and color and less about place. It's only a shift of a few feet, from eye level to down low, but there's a whole new world that opens up.
