Photo Challenge: Unique Angles

This month’s photo challenge was “unique angles”.  I finally got out with my big camera to take some purposeful photos. It was fun to try and find a unique angle to shots that I take pretty much every spring (tulips, flowering trees).

There is a cheesy set of newborn photos that people take where they put the wedding rings of the parents around the toes of the baby to show how little the baby is.  I didn’t want to recreate that, but I did think this was an unique angle to take a photo of the baby.  (and his tiny feet are pretty cute!)

My next idea for “unique angles” was to take photos of the backs of houses as seen between two houses. I have been walking around a lot since having the new baby, and I notice that you get a glimpse into back yards and back decks if you look down people’s yards and beyond. I was planning on doing a series of these shots, but then I only really ended up taking one that was really worth sharing.

The next two photos are somewhat random, a view through the window and some water splashing on a leaf. I’m not sure if the angle is that unique, but I’ll publish them anyhow.

Finally, I had the most fun on a walk down through the tulips at the end of the tulip festival when the blossoms and tulips were at their peak. Most of my unique angles are pointing straight up to the sky instead of looking down as would be more normal. There are a few that are not flowers, but they were all taken on the same walk. I was quite pleased with these photos.
