A Different Perspective

As Lucie and I were walking last week, it suddenly dawned on me that I might be able to capture both the Chateau and the church with my wide angle lens if I took the shot from up by Christiane's garage. I asked her if it was okay for me to wander around up there, and she said, ' of course.' (actually she said 'mais, bien sur!') This morning as the fog was lifting, I gave it a try. Eh voila!

I'm not saying that reading my new photography book, Visual Poetry, had anything to do with this epiphany. After all, the book hasn't even covered landscapes yet. But I've walked by this spot almost every day for the past 3+ years and never thought to walk off the road and try a different perspective. I'm just sayin.....
