Facade

The speed of development in central London at times seems bewildering. Cranes pock mark the sky and at every turn there is evidence of change.

Today’s image is of a very small section of a vast new building nearing completion on Oxford Street. Its façade really appeals to me. With added reflections is has an abstract feel to it.

About LensScaper

Hi - I'm a UK-based photographer who started out 45+ years ago as a lover of landscapes, inspired by my love of outdoor pursuits: skiing, walking and climbing. Now retired, I seldom leave home without a camera and I find images in unexpected places and from different genres. I work on the premise that Photography is Art and that creativity is dependent on the cultivation of 'A Seeing Eye'. I'm not averse to manipulating images to produce derivatives that may sometimes be far removed from the original.

    Great shot, Andy. The modern architecture makes for some beautiful graphic designs.

  4. sounds exactly like what’s going on in Toronto. You can’t turn a corner without seeing another condo going up. I love the graphic elements of this image.

    I really like the colours in this photo – the greens especially. And you must have been in the perfect spot to line up the brick reflections so nicely with the edges of the windows. The white web pattern is interesting and will probably stand the test of time very well, but the yellow and black slashes in the lower left are likely to look dated in just a few years.

      Thanks very much Ehpem. The building is not yet occupied – I think the yellow and black splashes will be a feature of the frontage of the store in the floor at ground level. I felt it just added something that disrupted the otherwise almost perfect symmetry.
