I'd like to try something a little different with this week's theme: from behind. We've been conditioned to take pictures from the front - think about it, when we pose, we stare straight at the camera - that we've virtually forgotten what goes on on the other side. For the coming week, I hope we'll walk around to the back and see what we can find.
There's a practical benefit to shooting from the so-called wrong perspective: you can get away with pointing your lens at perfect strangers in public spaces. On this day in a nearby town known for its world famous Stratford Festival, I found it amusing to come across this scene almost in the shadows of one of its marquee theatres. I guess stories are just as likely to unfold off the stage as on it.
Your turn: First, what's this guy thinking? Second, I'm hoping you'll share your own Thematic vision this week. Take a picture from the back, or of the back. Of what? Could be anything, and I'm betting you'll all find neat ways to interpret it. Post the results to your blog, then leave a comment here letting everyone know where to find it. Repeat often through the week, and bring friends along, too. If you're new to our weekly photo-sharing activity, click here. Have fun!
