One of my mantras, when I’m taking photos in a city, is to “Look up!” It’s amazing how much happens above our heads (literally and metaphorically). Sometimes my eye is drawn naturally to a pinnacle or spire – like the Bauhaus column. Sometimes I need to remind myself – like the Fernsehturm (below).
I realise that upward shots are prone to distortion. Some of this can be adjusted in Photoshop, but even when it can’t the results are still worthwhile.
