Right Time, Right Place Photo Op #3 – Looking Up!


Can you guess what and where this is?
(Answer at end of post)

As all photographers know, a great or unusual photo op can come from considering a different perspective or angle of looking at a subject. When I am looking for something to photograph, I look up, down and around my surroundings to see if there is a different viewpoint. I have no problem laying in the dirt, on a floor or whatever position is necessary to get the shot.

The photo above is of something I spotted as I was walking out of a restaurant in Las Vegas (1st hint). I was intrigued by the shapes of these objects as well as how someone got them to stay embedded up there. Some of them serve as light fixtures with can lights inside them (2nd hint).

The next time you are about to take a photo, try a different perspective. You’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Answer: This is the ceiling embedded with terracotta pots in the lobby of Picasso’s, one of the top restaurants at the Bellagio in Las Vegas.

    That’s a cool idea. I hope they are really glued down though. Ha. I’d like to see each one be part of a sky light, that’d create a really dramatic light!
