Weekly Photo Challenge: UP!

As a photographer, I have spent a lot of time shooting up.

Up a tree. Up a building. Up at the clouds. You name it, and I’ve probably shot up at it.

I’ve even shot up at children, which requires me to be lower than a toddler and is getting harder and harder the older I get. ๐Ÿ™‚ ย Here are a few things that mean UP to me.

Looking UP at the Steeple. I shot this image many years ago of an old church in downtown Oklahoma City.

Looking UP The Glass Spires To The Clouds. I shot these glass spires in St. Louis in a botanical garden I visited. I loved the way the glass fingers are reaching for the clouds.

I can't have an UP without this image of famous landmark. I have posted this before, but it remains one of my favorites. The St. Louis Arch is massive and has been photographed tens of thousands ways. Here is my take on a familiar landmark.

      Thanks Dianne! If you ever get to America (St. Louise, MS), they are in the Botanical Gardens! I think a local Artist made them for the gardens. If they were in my home state (Oklahoma), the constant hail we get during storm season would have shattered them by now!
