A Different Perspective

Seems like this time of the year always brings a case of the blahs, the post-holiday blues, the winter doldrums. Whatever you want to call it, it’s here. I wrote about it last year around the same time too. This year I’m trying to head it off before it gets me down.
A change of scenery works well, but that isn’t always practical. Today I decided to change my perspective right where I was. So I did what any normal, sane person would do, I laid down on the floor.
Yes. Yes I did.
I took my camera along with me, and decided to check things out from a different perspective. The first picture above is called Red Dishcloth. I’m real creative with naming things. But I quite enjoyed my red dishcloth as I lay beneath it on the floor. I’d never noticed how nice and bright and red my dishcloth was before.
This one is called Flower On a Chair.
It’s a flower, carved on a chair. So there.
I ventured outside too. My dog was more than confused as to why I was laying on the ground midwinter. Can’t wait to show you what I found outside. It’s amazing what’s right under your nose when you change your perspective. But for now I’m just sharing these photos with ya.
Stayed tuned for more from A Different Perspective.
How do you battle the winter blues, blahs, and those long gray overcast days? Do share. I love it when you share.
This was brilliant timing. I started a photography course last week to get to know my new camera. Living in the Middle East there is sunshine all year round. I couldn’t wait to get out and do my homework. Except that this week has been overcast….all week…..and today it rained. Usually I revel in this cooler weather but it has done nothing for the tones of everything – the usually dramatic lighting just looks flat. I will try to look at this from a different perspective. Lovely pictures, great inspiration.
This is fun! For me, going outside and watching the wildlife usually does the trick. Or at least watching my silly 2 year old giant pup. She never fails to make me laugh.
Great post Amy! We all need a different perspective every now and then, that’s FERR SHERR! I think I may just need to go stand on my head in order to shake out all of my winter blahs…
Love both those photos..especially Flower on a Chair. I also just love the actual chair…and me in shopping mode for the new dining room suite …hmmm
I really needed to see this post – perhaps that is how my little kids see things. The simplicity of this post really makes me think. Thanks for that.
How fun! You’ve inspired me to change things up in my photography too!
What a fun idea, just perfect for getting out of a funk. I imagine it’s rather hard to take life too seriously from that perspective! I’m glad I found your blog, I’ll be back to see what else you captured while on the floor 🙂
You crack me up. Changing perspective is always a good thing to remember to do!
Love this. Love you! 🙂
Love this idea. . i try to always take a step back but not always easy. . .But to combat winter blues we usually go on a vacation, that will solve it for me.
just discovered your blog…love it! funny, i also had the post-holiday winter blahs and wrote about it in a post. thank goodness march is around the corner. some sunshine will do us all good.
