Elliott Erwitt described Photography as ‘an art of observation’. Thankfully we don’t all see the world quite the same way: it would be very boring if we did. By observing the world around us we all distil from it images that appeal to us individually. On my trips to London I try to find something different in the City-scape. Some of that is to be found at ground level, but some is also to be found above our heads.
I glanced up at this building and out of fifty or sixty panes of glass saw one pane that was different from all the others. It appears as if a sheet of paper has been stuck to the interior of the glass and is now slowly detaching itself.
The simple repetitive pattern, disrupted by that discrepancy, appealed to me. I wonder how long that piece of paper lasted, and who else noticed it.
