“Junk is in the eyes of the beholder. Some look, but others see.”
This week, I was looking forward to taking some time to photograph Saturday to work on this week’s challenge: Shoot from Above. I decided to go to a favorite location for creative photography,
Cline’s Country Antiques. There are so many wonderful things to be discovered at Cline’s.
Not all of the things I photographed Saturday fit the theme: Shoot from Above, but there were many subjects that caught my eye.
As I was walking through one of the buildings, I noticed three stacks of 45 records. I was drawn to them because they immediately took me back in time and they were in really nice light. When I was young, I LOVED my 45 records.
I worked on several compositions to photograph them from above. My first compositions focused on all three stacks at one time. I abandoned this after a while, changed to my macro lens, and began focusing on only one of the stacks.
I noticed the colors of the labels and arranged the records so that the different colors would show while photographing them. I did not have anything that I could stand on to get me high enough to get to the right spot to see what I was doing. Luckily, I have a tilt LCD on my camera. Using the LCD tilted and Live View, I was able to see exactly what I was doing holding the camera above my head.
It was in this manner that I created my image for this weeks challenge, Shoot from Above.
I had an amazing morning finding great subjects to photograph. I also enjoyed finding a subject that I was able to photograph from above.

I cannot wait to work on the next challenge.
