Very interesting shot, I like the angle.

Very cool - quite a different perspective.

Now, that's an angle I would have never thought of before. I learn so much with every photo blog I visit. Very interesting and creative.

great perspective!

I wonder what his shoe size is:)

Paul Godin said...

My neck hurts just thinking how you had to take this one. Hopefully the statue was up higher than ground level.

The angle makes this really eerie.

June said...

I also am intrigued by the angle...that the foot is so dominant makes for a lot of drama...

That is great. I though my foot was big but never again.

Very creative angle. Nice job.

Mojo said...

the mind boggles at the thought of what you must have gone through to bring this image to us.

But we appreciate it!

Thank you all!!! This bigger than life-size statue of St. Peter sits on a tall pedestal---his foot protruding. Hence, it was not difficult for me to take this shot.

BJ Roan said...

Great angle! I wonder if you had to be a contortionist to get the shot.

Hilda said...

Your choice of angle sure made me smile! :)

Dragonstar said...

That's a BIG foot! Good perspective.
Thanks for your kind remarks on mine.

I love this angle! I've never shot anything like this before, but you have set me an example, and I'm inspired to try it...Galing, Joe!
