“Make happy those who are near, and those who are far will come” – Chinese Proverb
It took me a while to decide which photos in my files were suitable and representative of the perspective Brian shared with us. I must admit it was a challenge but I think the choices made are in line with the assignment. Hope you think so too. For this week’s photo challenge, I chose a range of photos taken abroad and locally. I have added some information on the photos to help identify their location. Is it my imagination or does the texture and coloring of the sky look a bit different wherever we go? I think so… Ask me any questions, and Likes/comments are always appreciated. I’ll be visiting you too. Do come back for more!

I found that my landscape shots worked best; especially those taken near water. The reflection of blue sky against blue water created a feeling of expansiveness and a welcoming serenity that worked perfectly with the idea of seeing things in a three dimensional way. Some of the shots might be a stretch or not taken close to the ground so that narrowing of focus effect isn’t as profound… When I finally understood Brian’s diagonal perspective effect, it was my eureka moment! Pardon my joy, I am an amateur photog. Did you enjoy this week’s photo challenge? More Below!
