Worm's Eye View

This produced some fascinating contributions.


For my part I decided to try and construct an actual 'Worm's Eye View'.


My concept was that the pics would work in sequence to tell a story of a worm emerging from the ground!

First I photographed a close-up of the inside of a kitchen roll tube to represent the worm's hole that it's emerging from.

By combinimg this with another of some long grass and a library pic of a blue sky, I was able to represent what the worm would see emerging from the ground.


Next the really difficult bit - I wanted a shot of a bird looking down, so as to be looking threateningly at the worm!

To do this I placed my camera on a tripod below one of our garden bird feeders that was a blackbird's favourite. By using remote control from an iPad and burst shooting, I managed to get one good shot from 74 attempts!

I then replaced the feeder with more long grass to effect the blackbird's imminent threat.


Not finished there, - but the worm was shortly to be - the final pic was the underside of a walking boot, signally the very last 'Worm's Eye View'.


I hope you like them . . .

U3A DPG - 2021

Just before the first dreaded Covid-19 lockdown in March 2020, we did manage to squeeze in a visit to Fakenham Races. It was Friday the 13th so most of us refrained from gambling, preferring to concentrate on the photo opportunities. Here's mine: Fakenham Races


Since then, we've been restricted to 'virtual' meetings and to this end you can find all that we're getting up to on on our Viewing Platform, www.dpg-vp.weebly.com


I hope you enjoy the experience.
