The World As My Tripod!

Prompt 9 for Shimelle's class was to use the world as my tripod. The idea was to look at the world from a different perspective. I did this the same day as the sky pictures. It was warm and the ground was hot, especially those red bricks! I also rediscovered that I'm still allergic to grass and had red scratches on my legs for several hours after my photo shoot.
This first picture was taken across the street from the City Hall. It is a building that is no longer in use. The flowers growing on the porch were just beautiful and this picture turned out better than I thought it would! I had a difficult looking in the view finder, so I pushed the button and hoped something good happened. I really like the calmness represented in this photo.

This next one was easier to take. I am at the end of a ledge, so I could easily get behind my camera and focus where I wanted. I chose to focus on the brick wall leading into the picture.

The next was more difficult. The red bricks were super hot. I had a very difficult time getting behind my camera. I tried to just push the button and see what happens, but the camera wouldn't focus. I turned off the auto focus, focused it a bit, took picture, focused some more, took a picture. I was able to find one I liked after several attempts!

The last is just a different perspective of the red bricks. I thought the hotel brick was funny. I framed it with my summer feet and shot from above. I wish I would have saw the writing in the left corner. It's not too distracting, but I could have framed it out of the picture.

On another note, I'm so dang proud of myself; I blogged almost everyday this week!
