Looking Up Thursday

Hi Everybody!

Sorry my posts have been a bit scattered. 

I've been a bit scattered as I try to keep up with the mid-semester flow of work at school!


The other day I was sitting at my friend's table and accidentally sat my phone down while it was still in camera mode.  I reached out to turn it off, but then realized what a great picture this would be, so I snapped it.





It made me realize how little we think about what is above us at given times during the day.

This set me off on a whole series of "looking up" shots.

Try it with your phone sometime.  

Things are definitely looking up around here.

How about at your house?

What's above your head right now?

I'm at work and above me is a really cheap ceiling.
Did you tell your friend she has a light out?

Shelly said...

What a great thought! Right now, I am early to school, sitting at my desk, and there is a Texas and US flag above me.

Cool pick, and a great reminder.

Brian said...

That is a cool accidental shot! Sister Precious is above me... in her suite!

Old Kitty said...

I'm t work and the ceiling above me isn't very nice. I'll be outside soon where it's sunny.

Ever since I got bit by a copperhead in my own back yard, I spend a lot of time looking down! Outside at least. Above me right now are very boring styrofoam ceiling tiles.

Marg said...

Great picture. You did make me look up.Just a dirty ceiling. That was fun. LOL. But that is interesting to take pictures looking up. Take care.

Popcorn ceiling and a very cheap bedroom light fixture at the moment. My laptop is in my face as I type.
Love the fixture and I think someone will be replacing a bulb now that you posted it being out.

MOL BB you crack us up. Mom is in the office w ceiling fan above her head and I'm on the table (yes the table) with a light fixture above my head.
Hugs Madi and Mom
G-ma is not showing much interest in rehab and is still quite confused.
Of course it has just been a week.
thanks for asking

Above me is very ugly popcorn ceiling, from the 70's.

Very cool

Baby Sister said...

That is a cool shot!! Above me is darkness. I don't have any lights on because I have a headache. But really, I prefer it that way most days. :)

I think I see a spiderweb up there.

Be well, Betty.

Above me literally is a dusty, icky ceiling fan. Figuratively, that is a whole 'nother mess.

Ann said...

I'm refusing to look up because I know I will see cobwebs that need to be removed and I'm not in the mood to do it right now. So I will just pretend that there is a blue sky over my head right now

Brian Miller said...

it is pretty funny how we often miss that perspective....and interesting too how one light is out...i might have to start looking up...

Jimmy said...

Nice picture Betty, you are so right we rarely look up to see what is hanging right above us.

I am proud things are looking up my Friend.

Catherine said...

I like that idea of 'look up' shots! Very fun! Yes, how often during the day of what is completely around us. We are usually so focused on one little thing.

Wishing you a beautiful weekend Betty!

I love that one of the bulbs is out. Those little details are sometimes pretty amazing.
