Nobody ever looks up
While I was wandering the other day, it occurred to me that photographing the saguaro cactus from the bottom looking up could be very interesting. It gives them a whole different perspective. And like I’ve mentioned before, once a saguaro starts to grow arms, they are all different and unique. I’ve also been wanting to try some different artistic touches with my photos, and the two ideas just fell together.
I like the idea of looking up, instead of plodding along with our heads bent, looking at the ground, our phones, or maybe just our feet. Why not look up more? The clouds are up there, the sun, the birds. Even snowflakes drifting down is an awesome sight. I love to look up when we are hiking or walking. I would miss so many great things if I didn’t.
And for the textures I’ve used, I feel it gives the photos a whole different look, something a bit more interesting and artistic.
I plan on making this a whole series of photos, and to look up and photograph different things as we travel.
I created a gallery on my Mary Hone Photography page, and hopefully people will love the idea and want to have these in their home. There are a few more images over there too.
Why don’t you join me in looking up. Post a photo to Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook and use the hashtag #nobodyeverlooksup. Tag me in the photo too, so I can see what you saw while looking up.
