Travels with my Art

Paintings and Photographs inspired by Travels Around the World

Cities from a different perspective

In life I always try to see things for a different point of view.

From 9 to 5 (well 8 to 4) I am a teacher and seeing an experience through the eyes of a 12 year old can be a huge advantage, invariably avoiding conflict and leading to an amicable outcome.

In my free time as a an amateur artist and photographer, I also find that when you see things from a different perspective it can lead to giant leaps in creativity.

Allowing yourself to be the other, and to see the world through a different pair of eyes can inspire you to be a better artist and photographer, capable of works that are more compelling to the viewer.

So, when I travel I endeavour to find an alternative viewpoint of a city, both to photograph and to experience.

Here are some examples of my photographs of cities from a different perspective, from time spent in Cairo, Amsterdam, New York, London, Venice and Stockholm.

      Hi David, I would be interested in joining the live webinar next Saturday, but just wondered what it entails? I clicked on the link you sent me and it said I have to pay, which I would rather not do. Can you give me more details. Thanks Ali.

    I need to do this myself. I often travel with my 6 year old and he often points out things I have missed. I love the mood you have captured with these photos.

      Thanks – it is great when kids point out different things. I have three children, 9,9 and 7, so a little older than yours now, and know exactly what you mean. Ali
