52 Weeks Of Photo Challenges

A theme based photo blog

13. Forced Prospective


Last week I took a quick trip to St. Louis with my husband to visit family. As our plane was taking off for our return flight I was snapping off photos on my iPhone. At the time I was thinking that the photo was going to fit the theme “Rows and Rows Of.” It wasn’t until later when I was looking at the photo on my computer screen that I saw something different! When I showed my husband he just said, “You have quite and imagination.”  If you look in the bottom left corner you will see the shadow from our plane. But, on the ground there is another plane taxing to its gate. To me it appears that the plane on the ground is flying very low and casting it’s shadow on the ground. The only problem is the shadow is going in the wrong direction! But I still like it!

Author: Mindy Towns

Hi, my name is Mindy Towns, I live in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. Along with several friends I have been participating in a weekly, theme based, photo blog since August 2012. Each year we receive a new list of 52 themes. We then post a photo each week that fits one of the themes along with a brief description about why we feel the photo fits the theme. Over the years I have learned a lot about my camera, new photography technics and also a lot about my fellow bloggers. I've peeked into their homes, met their families and traveled to exotic places through their photos. This year I am challenging myself further by trying to become even more creative in my posts. I found the cutest little Playmobil person complete with a camera and a little dog. She is going to be my little personal assistant over the coming months. I'm going to use many of the photo skills I have learned from participating in the photo challenge along with some new photoshop tools I have been practicing. I hope you will continue to follow my blog as I change things up a bit this year. Perhaps some of you will raid someones toy chest or toss something cute into your Target shopping cart and get a little silly with me. If you want to see examples of my grown up photography please visit one of my links listed on this blogs home page!

  9. This is funny – I was reading your description and looking at the pic – NOT reading your last sentence but looking at it and thinking – that can’t be and then thinking …… I agree with Mike!! Then of course read your last sentence and I like the pic and I do think the taxing aircraft looks like it’s flying ✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️
