Often if you want to produce an image that is dramatically better, or just different, from the same old, all you have to do is change the perspective that it is shot from. I have learned this well over the last 18 months as I have been shooting my “photo a day” images.

At lunch time today I sat down by the Wellington War Memorial to eat. Very some I was joined by a cheeky sparrow and the couple of pigeons, all eager to share in whatever would fall their way. I decided to take an image of my lunch partners but when I looked at all I could say was “boring”.


Then I thought maybe I could put the camera on the ground and see what I could capture. The result is a much better image and my photo for 18th July 2012.
