An Unusual Point of View: Wordpress Weekly Photo Challenge

The Cat, the Red Bench, the Empty Street, Island of Murano, April 2013

The Cat, the Red Bench, the Empty Street, Island of Murano, Early Evening, April 2013

Since self must have her own way, she took the vaporetto to Murano after 6 p.m., when all the tourists had gone home!  Because the streets were so empty (like being on a stage set when the play is over), she was able to take her time photographing the empty squares, the silent streets, the cat on the red bench . . .

We were on I-5 South, just passing Six Flags/Magic Mountain.  The roller coaster is in the lower left corner.

Sometimes self wants to take pictures of nothing. Empty sky, empty streets, empty yards, empty rooms.

This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge urges us to share photographs utilizing an “unusual point of view.”

Here are a few of the suggestions on The Daily Post site:

  • Focus on a specific part of a person, object, or structure (instead of all of it) —  or intentionally cut off a part of your subject or scene.
  • Place something in between you and your subject or your scene to offer a distinct perspective . . .

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.

    Thank you! I like that cat myself. Also because it represents surprise — the surprise of being on an empty street which just hours earlier was probably full of tourists.
