3-7-14 A New Perspective On The Weekly Photo Challenge

The challenge this week, as you might have guessed, is perspective. This is an interesting challenge because there are so many ways into it.  Here are just a few from Merriam-Webster:

1 a : the technique or process of representing on a plane or curved surface the spatial relation of objects as they might appear to the eye; specifically : representation in a drawing or painting of parallel lines as converging in order to give the illusion of depth and distance
b : a picture in perspective
2 a : the interrelation in which a subject or its parts are mentally viewed <places the issues in proper perspective>; also : point of view
b : the capacity to view things in their true relations or relative importance <trying to maintain my perspective>
3 a : a visible scene; especially : one giving a distinctive impression of distance : vista
b : a mental view or prospect <to gain a broader perspective on the international scene — Current Biography>
4: the appearance to the eye of objects in respect to their relative distance and positions

Many different ways to go here. I think I will be returning to this all week, although I may have a different perspective on that tomorrow.

Perspective #1

The view (perspective) here is tight and close. Can you tell what it is? (without looking down that is.)

If we pull back and change our perspective

I took these shots for the Amy Arbus class assignment “timeless”. I thought that bread making was pretty much a timeless activity. I also thought that it was probably pretty damn near impossible to shoot self portraits of bread making and come out with a good loaf of bread, good photographs, and a clean camera. I was right. The bread dough was so overworked I had to dispose of it. The camera survived, and I think I may have come out with a few good photographs. Perhaps I will show them someday.

Here are some other perspectives on perspective:

  7. Those odds open up a perfect maze of possibilities. Not only does the word offer several twists and turns, but the interpretation of each inflection has innumerable expressions. An superb example of the observation that we can only hear through our personal filters and we see in the same manner. My world is completely different from yours, whether constructed (language) or observed (surroundings). And that’s what keeps it lively!

  10. I would never have guessed dough. I thought it was the surface of a planet from outer space. Taking cameras into the kitchen is a dangerous thing! They might never make it out in one piece 😀
