April 2023 Challenge - Upward


Recommended Posts

Thank you to those that voted for my downward image and to all who took part. The obvious follow-on to the downward subject of March would be to turn it on its head, and a word equally open to interpretation. 


Standard Ts & Cs: Three photos per entry and the photos must be on Alamy. Submissions close April 30th at 11.59pm. GMT.


Some ideas from my portfolio:


















Good luck.

Building upward.  This project turned into a two store house for a married pair of doctors with two car.  The ground floor is their garage.   They have living quarters on the second floor and a glassed walled roof space for plants and drying clothes.

The VLA is something I've long wanted to see and photograph, but I think there is very little chance of it happening now.
