It’s been a while since I did a photo post and I’ve been interested to see a few ‘look up, look down’ posts recently. Looking for shots from different angles is something which has stuck with me since I did Shimelle’s Love your Photos, Love your Pages course back in 2010, so it wasn’t hard to find 5 pairs of up and down photos from our Easter trip to London to share as part of Shimelle’s 10 on the 10th this month.
Look up at the people coming down to catch a tube train:
Puddle Duck has a fear of escalators going down and this one was just far too long and steep for her to overcome that fear. Luckily there were stairs.
Look down onto the station platform at Gloucester Road:
Look up at the White Tower in The Tower of London:
This is the Norman Keep and the oldest part of The Tower. It was originally whitewashed – hence the name.
Look down at the execution site:
The Tower held many prisoners awaiting execution, but very few of them were accorded the ‘privilege’ of an execution in the relative privacy of The Tower grounds.
Look up at the statue of King William III at Kensington Palace:
Look down at the shadow cast by the gates:
Look up at the Delft inspired birds hanging from the ceiling in the Queen’s State Apartments, Kensington Palace:
Look down at some of the 18 little chairs – one for each of Queen Anne’s children who all died in infancy:
The Queen’s State Apartments tell the story of William and Mary and Queen Anne and the end of the Stuart Dynasty. I have a scrapbook page in the planning and I will share more of their story in a future post.
Look up at the London Eye:
Look down from the Eye at the street entertainer – a unicyclist:
Have you noticed how my look up photos are mainly portrait while my look down photos are mainly landscape? Do you do that?
