Different perspectives


The place we stayed in while in Rio de Janeiro had a safety net across all windows. Usually done as a safety precaution for families with small children,  I thought this was an interesting new challenge to my photography. And since it prevented me from taking photos by looking down into the streets, I soon became fascinated to work with this different perspective.

Your pictures of Rio de Janeiro remind me of Buenos Aires.

The safety netting creates a whole new dimension for the pictures and the shadows add a special something extra.

I've never seen those nets on windows, but it's a good idea. A local 2 year old fell out a second story window this week.

A perspective that those who live there would se often, and most wouldn't think to look for.

Hi David, Glad you are in touch. And thanks for the nice compliment.
And sure, do I remember! Would I not?

It's a different angle, and that really makes it work!
