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.

If you would like to see all of the images  that were submitted for this challenge, you can view them  here.

I cannot wait to work on the next challenge.

I am a travel and fine art photographer living and working in the Carolinas. My camera has taken me to places I never would have experienced and to people I never would have met. Photography has truly changed my life! Using my blog, I hope to share the joys of both travel and photography.
