Photo Blogging Challenge (July 2017): Point of View
Point of view.
Goodness did I have some serious ideas with this theme this month. However, all great plans don’t come to fruition. Then I look at the photos I took this month and I’m thinking … OK, it’s time to figure things out, which means I can now start to interpret this theme a little bit.
OK, maybe a lot.
So the five photos below are a different way of looking at things. The point of view can be looked at differently. And, well, I’m going to take liberties with that. But at this point, I’m blabbing.
My five are below. And as I mentioned last month, please try and visit and comment on each person’s posts. I know sometimes we get to them late — and that’s fine. But it’s disheartening to visit people’s blogs (I’m usually quite late!) and see only a few of the participants visiting others. Remember, we are a community. Support one another.
All that being said, it’s time to see what this month has brought us. Here is my five for the month:
1. Upper corner
Obviously, I’m a baseball nut. And I do a lot of photos of stadiums and game action. But this is a point of view a lot of people don’t go check out. If you go to baseball games, go find one of the upper corner spots in the stadium and check it out. It’s a really cool point of view.
Typically, the colors are pretty straight forward when it comes to flowers. Alas, this batch was different. It seems the point of view of these would make you think a little differently and be a bit more happy. A stretch for the theme? Probably, but I needed to use these!
3. Happy drumming
I recently saw a band after a baseball game and thought this would be a good interpretation of this theme. In fact, I liked it so much, I used two photos! But this is the first one — the drummer — think of his point of view. He’s strumming away and feeding off the crowd. So much fun!
4. Sing it
I am not a singer. I’m also not a performer. I’m more of a guy who wonders about things. At this concert at this cool bar in Lansing, Michigan, this band was really getting the crowd into it. You ever wondered what it’s like for a singer or band when they get into a performance? That’s a point of view I think would be pretty wild.
5. First pitch
OK, this is a point of view I could have had. But my arm is rag. You ever wondered what it’s like to throw out a ceremonial first pitch at a game? A friend of mine had the chance recently at a Double A game. He threw a strike. I likely would have bounced it.
There are my five and I look forward to seeing what others had this month!
If you took part in this month’s challenge, make sure to link up below. And for those of you who participated, make sure you try and get to other people’s blogs and comment (here, too!). Let’s continue to grow this challenge and have a strong community. Come back and check out the others who link later on, too!
