Street photography: Upside down

This week I chose a card from the Street Photography Challenge box by David Gibson that asked me to look at things from a different perspective.

Take a photo of reflections and turn it upside down, he writes. The photo above of a casuarina branch arching up from the pond surface is one I took simply because it was the only clearly reflected object on this windy day when the rest of the water was choppy. When the image was still in colour and the right way up, I took little notice of the low-hanging branches in the foreground. It wasn’t until I turned it to black and white and turned it upside down that I saw the value of these dark verticals in the lower third of the image.

I like the arched branch and its reflected other half, looking like a skeletal fish sculpture.
