30 Days of Spring: Down on the Ground, Day 5

Today's prompt is to get a worm's eye view.  I had the option of getting down on the ground with my camera or just taking the photo without looking through the view finder.  I opted to use my remote and stay vertical.  

No GI crawling for this one!

I'm not sharing all the photos I took but since most were less than successful I'll share the good and the bad ah - not so good.

The View from My Feet
The biggest most noticeable issue with taking the photos unaided by my eyes, was orientation and focus.  I don't know if orientation is the correct word or not, but I really needed to put an eraser or some small 1/4" - 1/2" object under my lens for just a little lift.  All of these photos were cropped leaving at least 3/4 of the photo behind.  Most of the picture was a huge expanse of sidewalk, mulch, or floor.  

And obviously the focus was not good.  There were parts of the photo in focus, but again, it was the sidewalk, mulch or floor.  

All in all, though, I loved doing this exercise.  I'll definitely get down on the ground more often.
