A quick post today. In London for Pat Metheny’s concert at The Barbican last night. Absolutely superb.
I was in London at the Photographers Gallery ten days ago to see Burtynsky: Oil (sadly finished now). As always, compact camera in hand. I walked into one gallery and there was an isolated figure standing at a floor to ceiling window gazing out.
I had probably two seconds to get a shot, so I just fired. He moved away within a second of this capture. I was so lucky. All I had to do to this was slightly straighten the verticals and some simple processing. Some times you just have to go with your instincts, grab a shot first, and then do the thinking. If I had done the ‘thinking’ first I would have missed this.
