I generally try to look upwards in search of different perspectives, but this instance proved to be the complete opposite…peering over a wall and looking down provided me with this point of view. Wandering the streets has always been my favorite thing to do with camera in hand, and the small villages usually turn up the best opportunities for “local flavor” and every day life.

really like this! Your POV and creativity here are irresistible. I love the mix of shapes, lines and colours, with the fg lamp adding depth and anchoring the image superbly. Your execution is perfect and the result an original and magnificent image. Well done!
Have a great week - Brian.

Hello JAson ,
Inreresting and original plunging perspective of this charming little street . We don't often see the street lamps in this angle of view .

Great POV. It reminds me of an Escher print with the stairway and the curved arch at left. Very well exposed with beautiful colors, and lots of different textures and objects.

An original way to look at the alleys of Menton!
An attractive composition. Very colourful.
Best regards, Paul

Good morning Jason,
Like most ancient towns throughout Europe, built as a labyrinth with small shaded alleies. This on is painted mustered-yellow, with red paved road.
Beautiful POV chosen, depth (double meaning here) is superb.

Lovely corner of town, I like to shot similar backyards, clever point of view, and an interesting composition as a result. Well done!

Excellent point of view and composition.When you
open this picture you must hold your seat. As
viewer you aim at the lantern to grab it to break
your fall...By this picture you feel absolutly
the highness (and depth. Light management is also
In short: exciting picture with a great quality.

I mean this in the nicest way, this shot made my stomach flip. You know when you go too fast over a hump back bridge, and you get that Whooaaa feeling in the lower part of your stomach? This shot just did this to me, and I think when I opened it, I rolled back in my chair a bit from the screen. Fantastic to create that effect with the depth of the stairs, and wherever you were when you took this.
The lamp in the lower corner emphsizes the height, and the semi circle of brick is a cool compliment to the vertical shapes. Nicely done!
