PhotoPlay Gallery: Look Up!
For our November PhotoPlay, I challenged you to lie down to gain a different perspective. I appreciated that some of you, like Ann Kroeker (above, top), risked being laughed at by onlookers. Mark Charles (above, middle) showed how perspective can create some truly fascinating images—even with a camera phone. And Tim Miller (above) found a different perspective while lying down by turning sideways instead of just looking up.
In addition to great photos, L.L. Barkat invited you to write a poem on this theme, and you responded. The featured selection, called "The Space I Dream Into Being," comes from Maureen Doallas:
The Space I Dream Into Being
I look up, wanting
to finger the face
of rain, kohled lashes
slant against sky,
tiny dividing lines
with hot breath,
so many words
escaping the space
I dream into being
between you and me.
Please enjoy all of the submissions below. We hope you'll join us again next month!
