The idea is to document your life over the course of the year, in the lifestyle photography sort of style, which is very candid and real-life based. I'm adding to this post a few of the more posed pictures that also came from doing this theme, because I love the imprint of this way thinking affected my traditional posed type pictures. It made them more relaxed. Most of the pictures, however, are pretty candid.
I would love to have more people join in on this photo challenge, so if you're interested in joining a smaller group of people following this challenge, please leave a note in the comments! We share our pictures weekly and discuss and sometimes critique them.

Week 4: A different perspective
I always take photographs from a very low perspective. For this prompt, I tried to take things from very high up.
