Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Perspective

Cee’s challenge for Black and White Photos this week is on Perspective – taking photos from a different angle, or looking at things in a way that you don’t normally.

Here is my selection:

And then for a bit of fun, this photo shows a turtle seeing things from a different perspective as he enjoys a leisurely swim on his back 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge: Perspective

This was a tough one! I’m by no means an expert photographer and while I take some fairly decent photos, it’s mostly by luck… I have no idea what most of the buttons and settings on my Nikon P100 camera do, and even half of the settings on my simple “point-and-click” Canon Ixus 135 get ignored. I don’t often see a good shot before taking it and it turns out decent – I can’t “read” most shots.

So, trying to find photos of mine where there was some sort of perspective shown in the photo was a tough search. I thought of going out and taking some photos until I remembered Sri Lanka last year with my friend Al.

We were in a botanical garden that housed this amazing path of trees…

While walking along this path we looked up and saw these birds flying all over, above us…

But on closer inspection we realised that they were bats and that the entire path of trees was filled with these massive bats!

Lots of bats
