Theme Day: Perspective

Theme Day: Perspective

Today’s theme at City Daily Photo is “perspective.” That can be a technique used in art and architecture to show distance or elevation. It can also be how you look at things. For instance, this could be a hole in a hedge, through which you view a field of small avocado trees being watered by […]
