In Virginia Beach last weekend for my son's wedding, my wife and I found ourselves confined to our oceanside hotel room by the Nor'easter that worked its way up the East Coast. As the hard rains and bitterly cold winds coming off the ocean limited our mobility, the bars of the ironwork on the balcony of our hotel room became prison bars.

That's some pretty bleak scenery. I don't know if Cal will accept this as an "unusual angle" since this is his challenge. It certainly an unusual scenery.

Aloha and thanks for sharing.

I agree with Selvin. This is an unusual shot but not an unusual camera angle. This is another shot that would have been great for the window challenge. In my opinion, this shot does not meet the challenge criteria.

Who says an angle must be merely physical? I think this is a great example of removing the sense of security that keeps us so "grounded" and changing our perspective (aka 'angle') to one which allows a sense of vulnerability.

My take on it . I like the photo trojansoc.
