The monthly challenge of our photo club imposes the following theme: "Close To The Ground". I am short of inspiration...
I have to provide a serie = 6 pictures related to the theme.
In addition to the 4 photos below, I have to offer 3 more photos...but I don’t know what to photograph.
Please, help me to find 3 topics that fit the theme.

Nik'D7200 direct on the muddy ground, FL ca. 70 mm, shutter triggered by "delay 10 sec", MTB at ca 6 m, hand hold by myself carefully standing outside of the view field

Maybe a pet or child from the ground, looking up at a car grille?

Lens at grass level looking from sidewalk to a house.
At sidewalk level looking across the street in a business district.
In a retail store at floor level looking down an asile.

Find a quiet road and sit the camera on the ground on top of the divider line,
set it on the ground and shoot grass or nuts on the ground, find acorns put a few on the ground and drop a few and see if you can catch one in air. if you have extension tubes, there are thousands of things to shoot on the ground.

I one took a picture of a display of plants which were stacked on a shelf-like stand. I found that the one taken from a really low perspective, looking up was unusual. Certainly looked different than the normal (at the same height) perspective. Don't know if it would be appropriate or not but...

Thank You for those 3 ideas...The 1st one is good...hélas,2 members are considering photographing a pedestrian crossing in a large crossroads from sidewalk level. I woud prefer to let them with this scenario and choose myselh another one, a different one.
The 3rd one requires a permit from the manager of the store. So I will ask if they allow me to take a photo in their store.
Again thank You for Your help!

good idea BDK...Yes...I will "hunt" some bugs crawling down on the ground. A macro lens will reveal certainly some interesting action!
I wanted initially to avoid shooting macro because more than 60% of the photos from the photo club will probably show a macro scenery But I don't mid, I will also have a macro scenery...it will be just one more...who cares?

Hello JAYMATT! Thank You for commenting and suggesting to shoot vertival. I already tried to shoot in "portrait" orientation...helas this way, the issue is to get the camera set properly on the ground with a nice vertical position. Of course, if set on a tripod this is easy to master...but set on the ground, it's a bit tricky (for me!)

A car tire, maybe the valve on the tire
a puddle
a low level curb shot
litter on the side of the road
a pot hole
a shoe or old sneaker
a cigarette butt
low level shot of birds feeding
a crumpled photo of a scorned lover
a lost hubcap in the weeds


I'd recommend that any of the above used should be shot low, and close to the ground, and not from standing eye level

The flower gets it nicely. The RR tracks, maybe a bit lower and one track in the corner of the frame being the subject looking outward.
