Travel theme: Tilted

Walking through Nisqually Wildlife Refuge, my eye was caught by a lopsided, windswept tree that was tilting defiantly into the wind. It made for such a beautiful sight I started looking for other off-kilter photos I’ve taken recently.

A little girl was playing on the steps leading down to the water at Alki Beach and I got this shot of her launching into a jump. The slope of the steps accentuates the fun in the shot.

Then there are the slanted submarine parts that make up the Fin Project in Seattle’s Magnuson Park.

Still messing around on Alki Beach as the temperatures in Seattle soared, I was trying to capture a different perspective of the surf breaking on the sand as the sun went down. Instead of going for a predictable horizontal shot, I tilted my camera to get a wedge of golden sand in the top corner.

About ailsapm

Hi there! I’m Ailsa Prideaux-Mooney. I’ve lived in many places, and travelled to many more. I had a lot of fun getting there and being there, wherever there happened to be at the time. I climbed a castle wall in Czesky Krumlov, abseiled down cliffs to go caving in the west of Ireland, slept on the beach in Paros, got chased by a swarm of bees in Vourvourou (ok that wasn’t fun, but it was exciting), learned flower arranging in Tokyo, found myself in the middle of a riot in Seoul, learned to snowboard in Salzburg, got lost in a labyrinth in Budapest and had my ice cream stolen by a gull in Cornwall. And I’m just getting started. If you’ve enjoyed what you’ve read so far, I’d love you to follow my travelogue - wheresmybackpack.com - and remember, anyone who tries to tell you it’s a small world hasn’t tried to see it all.

    Hi Ailsa, I hate wonky horizons but I don’t mind an interesting angle, especially when the angle is already there in front of you. Tilted! Here are my interpretations http://pdjpix.wordpress.com/2013/07/20/tilted/
