From the Top

June 20, 2012

German photographer, Menno Aden, shot a series of Berlin interiors from the ceiling. I really love how these look! Not sure what it is I’m drawn to, something about the creative constraints of the 4 walls and a contained space. And maybe that even messy, busy spaces seem to look great when shot from above. I think they look a bit like nests!

Do you like them? Seeing cool stuff like this always sparks ideas for me. You too?

P.S. — Take awesome photos of your kids! Inspiration here and here.

seeing it from above like that gives it a a dollhouse-like quality, like you could pluck things right out of it!

totally agree with the dollhouse comment from emily – such a different perspective.

One day I want to take cute themed pictures of my kids like the ones you linked to. For now, stop motion videos are my favorite because they’re so easy!

These are really fun! You’re right, great inspiration. I’m always trying to learn to take better pictures (mostly of my kids) and this could be fun to try.

It’s days like this that I admire spiders.

nice perspective, though I feel a little claustrophobic looking at them…Part of the idea I think. Thanks for sharing!

I like the idea of thinking outside the box (above the box in this case), but I find these shots unsettling.

Oh I found the angle a bit strange. I felt claustrophic or something. Cool pics all the same.

These gave me instant vertigo. Weird.

I really like how these pictures turned out, the idea of taking it from a birds eye view is creative and real. the angle makes it almost unreal, I wonder what camera he used?
