Round Robin Photos: Looking Up

I've found another photo challenge to play with. This one comes from The Round Robin Photo Challenge and the theme for today is looking up. The idea is to point the camera towards the sky and get a different view of things. In my mind this is different from Skywatch because you're not necessarily capturing the sky, but rather the things that you see when you look skyward.

In my case, because I'm totally garden-focused at this time, the things I see are plants.

This photo is the grape leaves that are twining around the arbour by the back deck.

And this one is what I think of as a "faerie's view of the sky," taken by actually lying down among the irises and roses and pointing the camera up.


  1. Hi Joanna :)

    My name is Carly. Welcome to the Round Robin Challenges! I love your name, I remember an actress from a while back with the same name.

    Wonderful photos! I am in the process of planning my garden for this autumn, so I am seeing plants and flowers everywhere. :) Wonderful process you have for capturing a "faerie's view" you have fun with your camera

    Well, once again welcome. If you have any questions about the challenges, or if you have a new idea for an upcoming challenge, feel free to send me an email. You can find my contact information on the sidebar of the RR blog.


    PS I also host a Monday Photo Shoot on my blog Ellipsis. There is a new subject posted each week, so jump in anytime, you are more then welcome!

  2. I hope you don't let those grape leaves go to waste. Pick them and make some stuffed grape leaves. Yum.

  3. Hi Joanna! These shots are very nice. I really like them!

  4. And what beautiful flowers you are watching! Great pictures!

  5. Great lying among the irises, camera in hand. I love grape leaves' shape. And, of course, Rudee is right: they're very tasty stuffed.

  6. Thanks for your comments everyone, and for visiting. Good idea to stuff and eat them Rudee and Stephanie. I hadn't thought of that.

  7. Great job on your first Round Robin challenge. I love the fairy's eye view. Of course, had I gotten down like that, I'd still be there, I'm afraid. Not so good at getting up and down these days! Nice photos. Thanks for sharing them.

  8. Great looking up shots! Very clever to lie down among the roses and the irises for that picture. Welcome to the Robins!

  9. welcome to the Round Robin Challenges! I love the fairy's view one; that was creative to think of taking a picture like that!!!

    enjoy your Sunday :)
