Cutting the open urban road

This shot was taken out in the west end, in Little Italy, if I recall. I mounted my camera to my 6-ft monopod, set the timer for 2 seconds, then hiked it way over my head to get this shot. It’s a neat trick once you master it. I haven’t played around with it enough to get really good yet, but I still think it’s not a bad try. I’d like to try this during protests and other gatherings downtown sometime. I think it would make for some unique shots. Hope you like it.

    That is a neat trick! SSo THIS is what it is like to be really, really tall! Such a differnt perspective than I see on a daily basis from my petite 5’3″ height for sure. I’m amazed you got such a great shot without even seeing what you were actually shooting! THAT’S impressive, my friend! 🙂

    • Thanks. Yeah, I’m only 5′-10″ so I get what you mean. This shot probably put the camera around 12+ feet off the road. A neat vantage point. They don’t all turn out like this but I can tell that with some practice it wouldn’t take too long to get it down. Sorta like the hip shots.
