Scav Hunt Sunday: Angles and Reflections

 From the archives for the first time since I started the Scav Hunt! But I LOVE this picture of the clouds reflected in the Ritz Towers on a crisp fall day.

High Angle:
 I took this hanging out of my window, looking down on the gorgeous blossoms outside my window. What can I say I live life on the edge and always hold on tightly to my camera!

Low Angle:
To contrast hanging out of my second story window, I went out into the yard outside my apartment and laid in the grass for this one. From high to low. 

 More like 7th heaven. After seeing Les Mis, I had the chance to meet and get a photo with the actors who played the Thénardiers, I was in 7th Heaven the entire evening!

My apartment is situated so that it gets direct AM and PM sun. There is a 15 minute period each evening when the setting sun reflects off of the windows across from my apartment directly into my living room. Blinding, but a great sunflare shot!

Oh my goodness! LOVE your 7th heaven picture. I know that was a very fun night out.

I am sorry you get blinded by that sun but I am so glad you get a little : )

Wishing you the most beautiful week! Love, Becky

I love the cloud reflection on the Ritz Towers. It's like having a piece of nature against the cold, modern structure... great balance. :) (Am I making any sense to you?)

The Thénardiers are such colorful characters in Les Miz that you can't help but love them somehow.

I really enjoyed your images, especially clouds with a great reflection. Also love the composition on high angle.

I would have pulled that first shot from the archives too. It's fantastic!

Great set Tamar. Cool cloud reflection. And grass in March? Wow. Isn't that fantastic. I wanted to thank you for the Les Mis reminder (I know it wasn't a special reminder for me), but I did see the show yesterday-and the opera house you shared about. Nice to see the "Master of the House" up close-much younger than he seemed on stage. My fave was Marius-such a voice. I used those hearing assists they were a great help and they captioned yesterday too. Have a great week.

Always enjoy your sets, Tamar, but this one is truly stellar. Love the cloud shot, adore the high angle and the lovely bokeh and such a great sun flare.

Your cloud shot is amazing! I love it.

The grass looks so lush and green. I want to go lay in it and look at the sky.

Super job on the prompts.
Clouds - I can see why you had to use this shot, it's awesome.
Sun Flare - Very nice
High Angle - Oh you are brave but that is a lovely shot.
Low Angle - So crisp and clear.
Seven - Lucky you.

--I Love your SEVEN.

How creative :))

Kim Cunningham said... {Reply}

Cool reflection! I like how the clouds are on the tower, but we can't see them in the sky. In also really like the low angle of the grass. It looks cool, fresh, and inviting to bare feet.

Nancy Claeys said... {Reply}

Funny how different our lives are, Tamar -- I think I would have a difficult time finding these photos as I've never been a city dweller. You did wonderfully! :)

Linda R said... {Reply}

Oh my goodness. All your shots are awesome.. Your cloud shot is so creative..

Lui said... {Reply}

Awesome clouds and I agree with 7: LesMis put me on 7th heaven as well!
