A couple of months ago I exchanged a few comments in one of my posts with fellow blogger Kiki from Through a lay(wo)mans lens, we were talking about feeling uninspired with our photography. It got me thinking about how the Internet brings us together and I realized that a great thing about connecting with other bloggers is that we can support each other and not only in the comment section. So I sent her an email and suggested we do a photo collaboration to help getting our inspiration back!
We then brainstormed on a few themes for the next months and here’s the first one: Walking Through Your City Looking Up. 🙂
My photos are below, make sure to check Kiki’s ones on her blog HERE.
I spotted this building from the bus, I thought it had really nice lines and with the trees all around it felt like a good picture for the theme. So I came back a few days later to get the photo. The cables from the public transports made it a bit tricky, but I finally managed to get them out the frame.
My initial idea for this photo was to take it from the other side, where you could see the bridge and the elevators. However, the composition wasn’t as good as I thought it would be. I was already leaving the place, crossing underneath the bridge when my boyfriend pointed out the view from this side wasn’t as bad. He was totally right!
When we decided on the theme this place was one of the first that came to my mind, because of this statue of a donkey looking down to the street. I immediately thought of taking a photo looking up at him hehe!
This shot was inspired by someone else who was posting photos of the city on Instagram, I saw this neighborhood in one of his pictures and took note of it. The buildings are so packed together!
A few days after I got these photos, I actually took one on Instagram that would have been perfect for this theme. But at the time I was shooting for the collab I somehow didn’t remember this building at all… *facepalm 🙈
Thank you Kiki for accepting to join me in this photo adventure! 😉
