Looking down

For those who enjoyed the article “Looking up” by Carla DLM, here is another worthy perspective put forward by Paulo Abrantes in his article “THE GROUND WE WALK ON”


“ground” by Mike Gal

In our daily lives we are always running from a place to another going to work, looking for a parking space or a restaurant, catching the train or bus and so on.

In all this rushing about, our eyes are always looking forward while with occasional glances to  check the time.

However, just under our feet there are amazing photographic subjects to discover.  Perhaps a puddle reflection of the real world on a rainy day, a shadow flow, a pattern in the sidewalk or the opportunity of great geometric compositions from road intersections.

These are just some of the many examples we can admire here on 1X.  They show us outstanding compositions made not by looking forward but just by looking down where the ground we are walking on plays a major role in the visual impact of the picture.
