Weekly Photo Challenge – An Unusual POV (A Perspective on POV)

Since my blog is “Points of View” I felt it was incumbent on me to do something truly unusual for this week’s weekly photo challenge. Cheri’s blog post quotes Lynn Wohlers to urge us to challenge ourselves about our subject matter and then to find an unusual perspective on it.

I think, for good or ill, that my second entry does that by brining the Iris into a wholly new and unusual place where it makes me, for one, rather uncomfortable.  But who said we always have to be comfortable even with what we are doing? How do we stretch ourselves without stretching ourselves and pushing the boundaries? My purpose here is not to be weird. Rather, I want to suggest that when you think about an unusual point of view you should go beyond just a physical point of view (up or down or front or back) and get outside of the box entirely. So, for example, if you are asked to take a picture of an Iris, you might just do this.
