The crooked Skywatcher



It takes a special kind of Skywatcher to shoot consistently crooked sky photos, and I am that special Skywatcher! Notice, please, that they don't all lean at the same angle, although most do have a left-leaning tendency. (This is not a political comment, however, but do feel welcome to take it as such if you choose.)

NO ANONYMOUS COMMENTS, PLEASE

Love them all! The leanings give character to the images!

Had to smile - this must be Italy (or?) I've never seen so many leaning towers and underpasses as in Italy! Still, though they're great Sky Watch images! Have a great weekend, Kay!

I saw a leaning tower in Bologna, Italy on my visit there last summer. It was in the middle of a busy city and made me nervous that it would topple over one day

How cool are these!!! Looks like most of these leans are not produced by tilting the camera....

Not sure these are leaning due to the photographer or the buildings themselves! Either way, great photos and LOL about the left-leaning comment. I rely on my straightening tool in Photoshop to keep my landscape horizons level, but perhaps that takes some of the fun out of it?!

Su-sieee! Mac said...

The towers all look to be leaning on their own. lol You have a talent, you do, for leaning tower photos. That's pretty cool. :-)

LOL I love your leaning shots. You must just want to keep revisiting the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Mara said...

I know for a fact that the leaning tower of Pisa isn't the only one, so you just happen to catch all the other ones! Unless of course you photographed the Pisa tower standing straight!!

Gattina said...

They have the same tendency then the tower of Pisa, lol !

thomas said...

Looks ok,normally cause by the lens,i normally straighten with Picasa.

These are beautiful towers! We had one leaning tower in one of our towns.

bill burke said...

Very cool!! I love your leanings, they add style.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I would be very upset if you leaned right Kay. (But your beautiful sky photos can do whatever they wish!) I have to straighten most of my pictures...I think I might have crooked eyes.

Jocelyn said...

Beautiful pics.

Jeanna said...

Your photos all have great character as well as being very well composed and shot, Kay. I especially love the last one with the laundry hanging.
