From Above

‘If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.’
– Wayne Dyer

Today I am linking up with Kim Klassen’s Texture Tuesday, the theme is ‘from above’.  This happens to be one of my favorite perspectives for taking pictures.  Objects can look nice from the side, but everything changes when I look from the top down.  With this different view I find new things to appreciate in an object, in an ‘oh, I never noticed that before’ kind of way.  Looking closer and recognizing the beauty in front of me is one of the many things I like about photography.

I used the Kim Klassen texture frosted in blend mode color burn for this image.  
I will do my best not to use a blue vase or wood background in my next post. I just love them so much. :)

Spring was looking like it made its way back to Ohio, but we are supposed to get snow tomorrow.  They say we are getting 1 - 2 inches. Hopefully it will melt quickly, I can't wait for the grass to be green and flowers to pop up.  I hope spring is finding you, wherever you are.

Thank you for stopping by!
Have a great week!

    Hi Michelle, hey.. I love this blue vase, so in my opinion you could post more pictures from this beauty! I like the way you look at things, the perspective!
    The words from DYER are gorgeous! Thanks for it!
    Best to you! Send you a lot of warm sunlights!!!

  4. Oh, my goodness... this is breathtaking and please, don't stop using these colours! I NEED to see them! :)

  5. I always love sunflowers and I love this from the 'up above' perspective. Very pretty with that texture, too. Color is always good.

  6. Lovely ~ It was always a challenge to get third graders to internalize the concept of bird's eye view. They did use it all the time in art when struggling with perspective ~ quite fascinating! Have a good one!

  7. the blue really makes the sunflower sing!

  8. Some colors we are simply attracted to Michele! Just go with what you love….because this is so gorgeous. And blue and yellow always look beautiful. Love this!!!

  16. Wow - what a fabulous punch of color! love the yellow against the blue, Michelle. This image would make a great "button" for. . . something :) I hear you're digging out from another 8inches or so... spring will come, I promise. Have a blessed week!
