I find it fascinating how familiar surroundings suddenly become so different when viewed from a new perspective. They become almost unrecognisable, as if you are seeing them for the first time.
For the main part,
most of us see the world from the same perspective all the time.
Out of curiosity,
I began taking photographs from a small camera attached to a kite in an
attempt to see the world from a new vantage point. With varying degrees
of success, the results have been fascinating and often surprising. Even
mistakes, the blurred shots, pictures of feet, or images taken from lower
than I was hoping for have had qualities that I wasn't expecting. I was
aiming for a degree of realism but have been surprised by the abstract
beauty in some of the images.
