photography ~~ an unusual p.o.v. (weekly photo challenge)

I am back from Chicago but not necessarily back to “blogging world”.  We have a very busy weekend and upcoming week so I will be making myself scarce again.   Chicago was, in a word, fantastic!  We had such a wonderful time.  A few of the photos I took while there work with this week’s photo challenge  rather well.

Here is a regular shot of a fountain in Chicago.  Beautiful day, great backdrop:

But with my “dramatic tone” filter, the mood of the photo completely changes to one of ominousity (is that a word?):

Again, here is a cool indoor shot, capturing some unique architecture of the Cultural Center/Library:

Yet, with the same filter, the shot turns completely artsy fartsy:

And finally, the good ole’ Chicago Bean.  I took this shot as I was walking past, through a park adjacent to it.  Here is the  full photo:

But when I crop in on it, it gives the viewing  of the skyline a totally different POV:

Please head over to the Daily Post for other great photos!

Enjoy the weekend!  I will see you soon.

  1. It’s amazing how different two pictures can look with only the change of the filter or if the pic is cropped.
    Haven’t mean to Chicago in eons – great city.
    I wish you a HAPPY and very relaxing weekend 🙂
