I'm not mad about this shot, but have little else to post tonight. There is something however about the symmetry that I find attractive in some way.
I spent my first day working at home to day and it feels great! The office is setup nicely and my new Macbook Pro arrived yesterday, yay :-) It's very nice, and i'm really happy with it.
This shot was taken on one of my lunchtime excursions when I was still working in London and although a cold February day there wasn't a cloud in the sky.
Hiya, i'm back. Once again , apologies for the sporadic posting, we are in the last throes of finishing the new Narnia movie, Prince Caspian. Needless to say, everyone is working their socks off getting the project finished, and I don't have much energy for anything else right now.
This is another one of my lunchtime shots. London is going through a massive phase of redevelopment and there is construction on every block. I seem to find the machinery and other technologies make good subject matter and have been documenting a few projects.
Oh, lastly, Happy Easter everyone! :-D
This is one of my lunch time shots, where I get out in the West End of London and see what I can capture on my break.
Although quite dark, and with a moonlit quality, this was actually taken in broad daylight as the EXIF data shows. The window frame was a very lovely emerald green colour, which initially caught my eye, but overall I felt the shot and textures worked better as a black and white, I hope you like it.
After the last few posts of moody dark B&W's , I fancied something with a little colour in it. I live in the country, but work in London and have been making the most of the urban environment and getting out at lunchtimes to shoot some new material.
This shot is of the delivery entrance to the famous London store 'Liberty', it's just off Regents street and is a stones throw from my office. I like the different coloured tiles, offset by the reds and the blue neon with the yellow lines of the street, quite a mixture of primaries there, which is unusual for them to be all together.
I took a number of shots in this alley, there were a number of other interesting buildings and bits of graffiti that i'll probably post in the next few days. I've got to admit that I was getting a number of strange looks and comments shooting this sort of the subject, to the tune of "What's he taking a picture of that for..." , guess they haven't stumbled upon photoblogs and the crazy details that we find interesting.
As for processing, the lense distortion was removed in DXO as it does a great job of straightening out the clean but large distortion of my 12-24mm lense, other than that, the doorway is a little offset, but I like that and the image is cropped to a strange aspect ratio as none of the conventional ones covered the composition I was after. I hope you like it!
