weekly photo challenge: look up

20151213-173709

I’m often guilty of looking down when out and about, and noticing little details at ground level, rather than looking up and taking in the bigger picture. I do, however, have a penchant for photographs taken at the foot of tall buildings. I think it’s something about the soaring lines of perspective that appeals to me.

This picture is the tower of the Basilique Saint-Julien in Brioude, illuminated against a night sky. It’s a beautiful, dramatic building anyway, but it looks particularly lovely when lit like this. I really like the way the crenellated lower roofline is still plunged in shadow, whilst the tower sails above.

People have been looking up at all sorts of different things this week for the photo challenge, as you can see over on The Daily Post blog.
