Ceilings

musings

There is something about artistic ceilings that makes me want to take pictures of them…it’s challenging with a point and shoot camera, and often the results are less than ideal. But the idea of craning my neck and shooting upwards is just too much to resist…hope you like these amateur attempts!

  1. My word, these are beautiful :O. I hope you keep posting more, wow :D.

    Also, if the idea of craning your neck and looking upwards and clicking appeals that much to you, perhaps you could experiment with pictures of the sky as well there is so much to be seen there :O
