Finding a different angle

When most of us wander around with a camera, we can be quite singular where we look and what we photograph.
Our eyes face forward, anywhere between 1.5 and 2m off the ground (plus or minus!). Our field of view can sometimes be a bit narrow and limited: standing up, taking a photo- it’s the typical snap!
Recently I’ve taken to walking around Metz, with whatever film camera is loaded and ready to go, with the intention of shooting upwards…there is some fabulous architecture that rarely gets seen…now it’s also turned into an exercise in composition, negative space, rule of thirds, using red filters etc etc.
I try not to shoot buildings where everything is equal on both sides of the frame; unless it’s of a spectacular construction. Sometimes even lower buildings can be interesting, just try a dfifferent point of view.
So, with this in mind, I’ve been using up some 35mm film that’s been hanging around a while.

These shots are with a Nikon F601, 24-85 f/2.8 and 28mm f/2.8. Ilford Delta 100 developed in Kodak D-76.
