Palazzo Photography

I'm weird as a photographer. Not arty, not expert and most definitely not abstract by any means. Yet, I absolutely love taking photos like this.

Having had the opportunity to travel quite a bit in 2011, I found myself walking the streets of cities that I was completely unfamiliar with. And then every now and again I'd see something like the photo above and just feel compelled to capture that moment.

In this photo, it's not about what's in the picture, but just about that very perspective and angle that I managed to capture. The reason that intrigues me, is that's the way I saw it and my challenge is generally to get your eyes & mind to experience the same thing I did in real-time.

Do you find yourself taking photos like these that don't make "traditional" sense?
