Theme Day: Tenin Technique

Today we honor Eric Tenin, the founder of City Daily Photo, by taking a photo with the camera on the ground to create a unique perspective or taking a photo at an odd tilt.

I chose to take a photo of the blanket of yellow Palo Verde tree flowers that had carpeted the ground. Once a year this happens in the Spring. These flowers look sort of like yellow popcorn. The rest of the year the Palo Verde trees are green with no flowers.

This is a fun theme day to see what everyone did with the various techniques. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants

Stunning color. A perfect Arizona interpretation of the photo techniques used by Eric of Paris Daily Photo.

This turned out so nice, Julie. I can almost feel the sun around me from your shot. Love you low angle, and I'm sure Eric in Paris will enjoy such a warm, colorful shot in his still cold city.
