Weekly photo challenge--perspective Word-full Wednesday

WC: How low can you go? Get down & take something at a different perspective than you might normally get. Come play along with us! The Slide Show of Fame awaits you...

OK, So I loved this challenge! I hardly ever get a low shot, but I got a few today that I really like. I took the twins for a walk and we explored and experienced and had fun. Some of these shots I was laying in the dirt for and I'm sure they thought I was nutty! I'll let you all be the judge....
I really like the through the grass look of yours {ZB} with the fall colors in the background and did something similar with these.

Then we continued on our walk and found these horses. As I first pondered exactly how to get over to them and second how best to frame the perspective I was aiming for....
1)The horses were located across a ditch -- I should have taken a picture of the ditch -- and up the other side. It was a good 4 or 5 feet down and back up! The twins were troopers and we made it. 2)for the above shot I was literally hanging off the edge of the ditch.
I crept a little closer and found these four saying Hi.
After a few quick lessons on how to feed the horses, I knelt down and pointed the camera up.
Scott and Em were really enjoying meeting these two horses. They had never really been that up close with horses.

Cool, these photos really do give a totally different perspective. Though I might have to draw the line at crawling around in the dirt. ;)

Now you've done it, getting dirty for the arts! I love the horse pictures the best! They are great. I can't believe that the twins have never been that close to a horse before, I mean this is you we are talking about! Oh I put my name on the list for word-full wednesday...I thought that story I wrote last night should be shared with more. Hope you are having a great day

Darla said...

These shots are amazing! There is such beauty in getting pictures from this angle and a person doesn't always think to take them like this. I love them!
