Unusual Perspectives

My colleague at Butler University, artist Steve Nyktas, has some of his artwork on his website, and it includes some photographs of entirely familiar objects from completely atypical standpoints. The results are often beautiful, but also thought-provoking as they illustrate how much we miss because we view things only from a particular angle that we have become accustomed to.

See if you can work out what you are seeing in the examples below, before clicking through to the website to find out what they actually are!
