A New Style?

I was reading one of my favorite blogs the other day, http://www.billiemercer.blogspot.com/, and she was talking about a new blog she was reading. She talked about the "tossed and tumbled" photos on that site. I couldn't help wondering what she meant. So I visited the site myself. This one: http://sweettooth.typepad.com/mst/2008/02/index.html It's written by a woman named Misty. She is a food editor and world traveler. She has just recently been to la Isla, organizing a retreat. We have tried to meet but are having trouble co-ordinating our schedules.

At any rate, I was fascinated by her photos. They were indeed tossed and tumbled. It got me to thinking. Could I do the same thing? Except my version and through my eyes? I just got this new camera and decided to shake my world a bit and give it a try. Here are the preliminary results. One member of my household say that they make him slightly nauseous.


I like them. What do you think?

I like the 'tipped' photos - but I wouldn't make a style of that - now and again a different perspective is fine. Since you asked.

An artsy friend once told me I had "a sculptor's eye for photography." It was not meant as a compliment. But you, sir, have a painter's eye. Great composition. Interesting perspective.

Ok, I read the first couple of comments and thought, hey, maybe I am on to something here! Leave it to Juan to bring me back to Earth! I agree. The tipped photos make for an interesting perspective once in awhile, but I don't think I would like to only look at that kind. Guess I'll just mix it up from now on!

I tried my hand at this technique, as well. But most of my angled shots gave me vertigo. I ended up publishing pictures of sticks, instead.
