The main point of this shot was the lamp but it turned out to be a pretty London postcard, with the London Eye and The Big Ben in the background.
Back to the weekly photo challenge.
I moved from the Portuguese countryside to the coast (Aveiro) 8 years ago, where the exploitation of salt is part of the region’s history. After all this years living here I still find the salt pans fascinating! The sunset here is gorgeous.Em ti falamos e diremos mais A todo o mundo todos os mortais Que tens palheiros e montes de sal Tens Moliceiros pelos teus canais Ainda és a Veneza de Portugal Aguas que a ria levou para o mar São lágrimas de uma flor Braços de ria para te abraçar Tricana cheia de amor Aveiro dos estudantes Vidas cintilantes Não vamos esquecer Que seremos teus amantes Até morrer
In the Background: The places that we pass through day after day, or even once in a lifetime, leave in their small way, echoes and traces of themselves upon us. But so often when taking self portraits or pictures of friends, the places themselves become a soft blurred mush of indistinct semi-nothingness, the limelight stolen by our smiling faces. In today’s challenge, let’s turn the tables. Take a picture of yourself or someone else as a shadow, a reflection, or a lesser part of a scene, making the background, or — as in the example above — the foreground, the center of attention.
My bf and I got this plan to photograph our feet “from above” every time we go somewhere new, or do something different.
Cheesy, but really fun 🙂
My internet connection is back on track. Hurray!
Here is my contribution to this week’s photo challenge. I’ve never been to China, but when you visit London’s Chinatown you really feel that you are somewhere else.
