Sunday Stills, Potluck with a Purpose

Linda's challenge this week was to get us to move.  You can't just
 stand in one place at one angle and expect to get the best picture.
By moving the camera or yourself a few inches or a few feet,
can greatly change the out come of a picture.  For example, my
 first shot, a pineapple sage in my kitchen garden.
 I'm standing directly over it, no big deal.

Now, see the differences, when I lower the camera down to it's level.

Here I'm standing about 4 feet above this stump and with my height 
the camera is about another 5 feet above that. 
 Nothing special about this picture.

But, now I have walked down to the stump and put the camera
at the same level,  now you can see all the detail of the stump.
So the next time your have a camera in you hand, move !
