Bird’s Eye View: My Favorite High Angle Travel Photos

In this week’s installment of my fake FriFotos posts, I wanted to highlight a style of photography that I especially love – high-angle or aerial shots. I always try to get up as high as possible when I visit a new place, whether that means climbing a few hundred stairs, taking a super speed elevator or flying in a hot air balloon. I love the different perspective that getting up high provides and more than once I’ve found myself surprised by the views.

    Despite my fear of heights, this is also my favourite view. I feel like you really get an appreciation when you see it from above.
