"Keep looking up, 'cause that's where it all is" - Kidd Kraddick

This photography show is for images of things that are "up", though not limited to skyscapes or skyscrapers. What or who is upwardly mobile? What motivates people to keep their chins up? What does one see when one looks up? Whether spiritual or banal, photography can shift a person's perspective. Show Frisco your best shots!
