Looking UP

by Carla DLM 


by Holger Glaab

Normally, we tend to focus on the world in front of us and pay little attention to what goes on over our heads. However, living close to one of the cities with more skyscrapers in the world made me wonder what treasured we can discover by raising our eyes.

Thinking about it, looking up opens a world of possibilities for photography: trees, stairs, sky, clouds, airplanes, buildings and much more.  Personally, I love buildings and different kinds of architecture. I love getting a unique perspective on buildings by taking photographs from the ground looking skyward.

As in many other categories, it is challenging to capture the right angle, achieve a good composition and preserve sharpness. Here is a selection of dream-like images of skyscrapers obtained from this singular point of view. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
