Before diving into the blog post I’d like to run a quote past you from Dorothea Lange.

A camera is a tool for learning how to see without a camera.

I am a member of many Facebook photography groups alot Edinburgh/Scotland orientated. There is not a day that goes by where someone posts a photograph of the rail bridge from the same angle as the previous photographer.  While mother nature does throw a different view on each photograph(clouds, light), some are mind blowing but it does start to get a little tedious. Are people falling into a rut whereby creativity, originality and personality are lost?

Question: How often do you just look up?

Cloud formations, overgrowth in a forest, the moon?  Here are some photographs I have taken just be looking up and putting what I see into perspective(available for digital and print).  Keeping it simple with some great results:




Next time you’re out and about why not look up, you might one day be surprised.
