The theme this week at Where’s My Backpack is Tilted.….
Objects which are naturally tilted are more interesting than those which are tilted with human intention or manipulation; objects tilted by rotating the photo or the camera fall into the latter category.
We were travelling up the very steep hills of Tateyama- Kurobe in Japan. The tram was crowded. No seats were left and I could hardly stand upright in the tram which took us up the steep incline.
Looking out of the tram window, many trees appeared slanting. I realized that this may only be a perception. A perception that you get looking out of a tilted window frame as reference when the tram made the ascent.
The view from the tram was picturesque as the autumn foliage was colored. Some trees, I noted, however were tilted naturally. The fact that some of the topsoil gradually slipped down the steep slope has brought the trees along with them.
One tree looked particularly tilted (evidenced by comparing the non-verticality with the neighboring trees). I quickly took a picture while trying to stand upright, never realizing that I could use such a photo for a challenge . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
