There’ve been a lot of directions in the challenges.
Up, down. Round. Forward. No inside out. Yet
this week it’s FROM ABOVE.
I stand over garbage, see a lone glove on the road-
take a shot. A single baby shoe in the gutter.
Weddings from a church balcony, the mezzanine.
Not often, though. Directly above is rare, more likely above from an angled side.
Have they done sideways? I like that movie.
Here’s my From Above Gallery, though not celestial.

I appreciate the diversity you have in your pics. I think your evening city scenes are always OUTSTANDING; but the small blue pitcher tile really caught my eye in this post (as did that wonderful image of the three grandkids. So precious.)
You write the loveliest comments Stef
Thanks for your taking time to write.
Hope you did not get that Minnesota snow I heard about.
You are most welcome Ruth. We received a very light dusting of snow – certainly not the 15″ that folks to the south of the city got dumped on. (I feel bad for them…)
An amazing selection of photos! I was in the City a few weeks back and I saw a single rose in the gutter. I was a bit shy about taking a photo at the time but I couldn’t help wondering what the story was behind it.
Sometimes I feel shy to take a picture but if I don’t, I kick myself. (figuratively)
Wonderful selections, Ruth! Love the beautiful bridges, wedding, rose, and baby.

What a wonderful selection of “above” pictures. I love them all. Even the fries and ketchup!
Someone must have been sorry to see them fall to the ground
Terrific set of photos for the challenge. I love the rose one and the children one…actually I love them all. 🙂
Quite an intriguing variety of photos, Ruth. I enjoyed pausing to take in each one! Your photography is lovely.

A very nice collection, Ruth. Your bridge photos are beautiful, as are the rest, but once again your best is reserved for the Grandkids.
quirky and entertaining thank you ruth!
Your blog lets me to see at least a small part of the world that, probably, I shall never see. The most I like the photo Shadows at the entrance of school with a dried leaf, and I like the diversity of the photos.
Come and visit and see our part of the world!
Thanks for visiting the blog and for writing a nice comment today.
I like how Laura and James are smiling to you!

Such a beautiful selection Ruth. As always you share so much beauty. Thanks! 🙂 *hugs*
Love your bridges and babies photos.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Lovely pictures, so inclusive. Thanks for including the wedding. Always a pleasure in seeing it. Almost 4 years!!
It’s amazing how this perspective is quite all encompassing. I agree with you though, directly above isn’t a usual position shot…. quite awkward to get the focusing right unless there is some height!

You are one of the few that have nailed the challenge Ruth! Love them all, but number 1, the conservatory floor and baby jack a little bit more 🙂

These are lots of pictures. Were the fries on the street yours? 🙂
Oh no, someone had dropped them near my parked car. I found them.
Gosh, they really have to throw those in garbage cans. hehe. Anyway, just in time for you to take pictures of it. Nice job. 🙂
love your photography and specially everything from this angle
What an amazing collection of shots – I’m really drawn to the bridges, but these are all great!
