London Abstracts

In recent years, however reluctantly, London is slowly complementing its venerable collection of Wren-era skyline with the addition of more and more examples of modern architecture; like a refined competition of the utmost impractical wtf-ery, the oft-hated “Walkie-Talkie” building was once described by the Guardian as a “thuggish comedy villain of a building, which has melted cars and caused winds strong enough to knock people over.” A review so scathing that the only proportional response would be “😍”.

What’s not to love?

That is the question..

Technische Fußnote. The abstract images in this post are made on the Nikon Df using the ZEISS APO Sonnar T* 2/135 lens, a most enjoyable piece of aberration-free heavy machinary.

  1. Some lovely clean use of shape & light Li. i am trying to achieve something similar in regards to shape & light, but using the rough architecture & paraphernalia of a country orientated island.

    1. Cheers Daniel! You can certainly form wonderful abstracts from the country, in fact I may do a “less-geometric” abstract post in the future, should be interesting.

      1. You sure can. The island being a place of workers, you get a lot of rust, machinery, vehicles etc. i wish i knew more technically but i think i get by. i am in no rush with photographer & enjoy it as an additional avenue to poetry, so i’ll see where it leads. If you get around to looking at my photos maybe you can give me some pointers.
