Ever feel like you just need a new perspective? I like to take walks over my lunch hour. It’s a chance to get up and step away from what can be a frustrating and stressful job. It’s also a perfect chance for me to scope out photo sites. After a rough morning of long conversations about insurance, I was thrilled when my lunch hour finally came around. I needed a reboot and, if I’m being honest, an attitude adjustment. One of my favorite walking routes is to head west and walk around the Meredith building and garden. The trees are amazing this time of year and I love stealing glimpses of the gated garden. Still feeling a little aggravated by a particular conversation from that morning I took out my phone and just started snapping pictures of everything I saw. Then I started trying weird angles. Standing on tip toes and getting my phone as far up into the tree branches as I could, twisting and turning for different angles. I had to laugh as I caught one business man eyeing me like I was nuts, then shaking his head as he passed by. If only he had stuck around for this shot! Laying flat on my stomach, my phone resting on the pavement, head tilted and chin almost on the ground, I’m sure I looked quite silly in dress pants and top but again I caught myself giggling and realized that if you want to get a different perspective, sometimes you have to be willing to physically change your point of view.
