WOYWW short and sweet

Crafty ladies around the world are taking pictures of their work desks on Wednesdays and posting links to Julia Dunnit's Stamping Ground. This is a challenge if you have limited space. I can cut off a lot of the image and focus on one bit of the desk, or I can back up and do a back bend over my computer desk to get a wider shot, or I can point the camera straight down while lifting it high above my desk and praying I'm getting something decent. The latter is what I chose for today.
Click on image for a closer look.
Do any other WOYWWers have to do anything unusual to get the shot? Do you stand on a chair, hold your camera in the air, go for the long shot from the hall or another room?  
I'd love to hear your tricks.

Sorry no more time for blogging today because:
  • My father is coming to visit for a few days so I need to clean the house and buy groceries.
  • I need to prepare for tonight's class.
  • I need to produce a newsletter (without much material yet) by tomorrow.
  • I need to help my son complete his pinewood derby car cat. He wants it to look like a cheetah.
  • I need to pack for Saturday's crop (this time I WILL BE PREPARED). Best news regarding the crop - I found the pictures I've been looking for for months (hidden on a poorly marked disk). Must find a better system for keeping pictures.

Happy Crafting,

Creative chaos, Kate, oh how I relate... and getting pickies no never or hardly ever stand on a chair, I am averse to such things since breaking badly my arm when I fell from one so if it is up a step ladder is what I use or small step stool!!

I'm very lucky as my crafty area is part of a huge room so I can wander around & get different angles. Sorry, I'll stop rubbing your nose in it shall I?!!!

Love the little sea creatures and whoever is in those photos has beautiful hair :-)

Love your desk - I just stand a little way from the desk and take a photo - might have to try the stand on chair shot ~ Nicky no.6

It's exactly how I get my pics...and no one ever complains. Out loud! I love the sea creatures paper there - how cheerful.

I just stand back and take a couple different angles and use the one that is less incriminating LOL!
