Paper Mama's Photo Challenge ~ A Different View

This is a tough one. Tough in a good way because I love doing odd things with angles. I'm all about weird angles. It's actually rare that I take a "normal" photo of my children. Sometimes I fill the frame so much that I can almost see their thoughts.

No one is complaining.

The tough part? Which one to choose.....

I chose the one of my son under water for several reasons. First, I love his toes and I wanted to show them under water, in this photo. I also knew I wanted the camera pointing up as to get optimal sunlight on the water. Second, I don't know how to swim and have never opened my eyes under water so this was a total crap shoot. I knew what I wanted and I ended up with just that. This was one of those facing my fears kinda moments because looking at this photo now I can feel my breathing stiffen. Just the thought of being covered in water makes me shaky.

Some others I love:
