PICTURE THIS #301 ~ UP OR DOWN / DOWN OR UP

Hello everyone! This is Belita, very pleased to host this week’s Challenge. The new theme is ‘Up and Down /Down or Up’. There are endless possibilities for this theme: a shot straight down/up to capture someone/animal that looks down/up. Why not a shot of a duck because it has down feathers? The scenery from the top of a mountain or an unusual scene you captured as you walked down/up a street, for instance. So, let’s see what you come up with for this week.

UP AND DOWN - I had to point my camera up the fake pig that was hanging upside down from a verandah (Lisbon)
UP AND DOWN / DOWN OR UP

DOWN  - I captured these two ladies but I was not down at their level  (Bratislava/Slovakia) 
UP AND DOWN / DOWN OR UP

The lady's camera is aiming down at heart-shaped lockers, on the last February 14 (Lisbon)
UP AND DOWN / DOWN OR UP

UP - The bird is holding his head up (Lisbon)

  2. Hi Belita!! Many thanks for hosting this week. Great theme, there should be some interesting shots. Your first shot made me smile. I wonder why someone thought it was a good idea to hang that pig from the balcony? Great shot of the ladies relaxing in their chairs in the second photo. Good take of another photographer at work in the third shot. Beautiful photo of the cormorant stretching his wings and neck.

    1. Hi Mitch! The pig is there as a sign for a restaurant that is specialized in pork dishes...
      Thanks for your kind comment.

  3. Four super shots, the pig is the hammer, so something unique. Good view of the ladies from above (you never know who might be watching) and you caught the lady at a good moment when she was taking the photo. That is some proud bird

  4. First, let me say your banner shot is lovely! Now to your pictures. Love the pig, I love unexpected things like that. They make walking such an adventure. Nice shot of the two women relaxing and I like how you captured the intensity of the photographer. And of course I love the photograph of the bird, a cormorant I think. Beautiful blues.
