Weekly Assignment: Look Up

This week as you walk around campus, begin to look around. But most importantly, look up.

Try to avoid only seeing things from your human apex.

You may be sitting, kneeling, or even lying down.

Don’t be afraid to squat or stand on a chair. Photography is about perspective. The more you train yourself to look for things, the easier seeing becomes.

You may stumble upon your image, or may know already what to look for. Explain why or how you came across your image.


This photo is taken in downtown Philadelphia. The airplane is headed somewhere else. I like to walk around big cities, where the building hover like trees in a jungle. You never know what you’ll see.


This is a detail of the Roebling Suspension Bridge in Cincinnati, Ohio. The mass of blue knotted lines crisscrossing the structure is a mass of confusion against a stable blue sky. Sometimes our lives seems to be rushing around, trying to holding things up. Meanwhile, there is a steady sky above us that can point the way.
