5' Syndrome is when you hold the camera to your eye and shoot. You never get down for a dramatic perspective or climb up high for the same. Just never a fore thought about the perspective and background. Nothing to do with being 5' tall.

Glad to see ya don't have the 5' syndrome. And keep posting red food. I'll survive.
LOL I will have to go take a peek at that shot Nomadicus. Like you said...for me it's what I want the perspective to say sometimes. Like...how can I see this in another way instead of standing up and shooting. I've never heard of 5' foot syndrome but I'm glad I read on. I was gonna claim it was 5'3 syndrome.

Love the shots! Mi_Mom, I can't rep you yet, but I would!
Thanks Mookster!

Until then, and until I can practice yoga contortionist positions, I'd rather not pull a muscle. Maybe this weekend!

BTW, I HAVE the 5' syndrome. Got a problem with that, huh?
I'm more concerned on getting the camera dirty for now...not myself. LOL about the yoga contortionist comment.

I'd never heard of it before but I like the saying. Very insighful.

Thanks but that is one thing we have plenty of all around us now. They are a site to see. 40-100 acres of just tomatoes. Simply beautiful. If they only tasted like those you can grow up your way. The farm foreman lives a few blocks away so maybe I get a photo up soon.

I'm not at 5' for this one. You can see what laying down on the job can get you. It has some red in several places. Shot in low light so the color balance is not like I would like but sometimes you have to take what you are given and be happy with it.
