Window Gallery

_ds81957_1This is a single image of a stepped facade which has been rendered a little more geometric by straightening not just the verticals, but also the horizontal lines – distorting the perspective for effect.

Regular readers of this blog will know of my fascination with glass reflections in inner-city environments. Sometimes they provide reasonably accurate depictions of neighbouring buildings; but on other occasions each window appears to be an individual surrealist’s interpretation of the neighbourhood – as in this case.

This is an image captured a year or two ago that has just surfaced from the archive. Winter is a season that has a lot of downsides to it, but one of the benefits is that we are confined to the house more than at any other time of year. Easy to get bored, but not when you have an archive to explore. Winter is a time for a little bit of image pruning – deleting images that will never, ever, see the light of day. Re-organizing the archive perhaps to make the images you value easier to find. And always there will be images, long forgotten, that have sat on the hard drive, unloved and un-processed. An hour in the archive is always time well spent.

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.

    Indeed, some good things about winter…tidy the house and sort your computer and re-appraise your photos.

    Fascinating image, Andy!

    I’m glad you are making the most of this winter. It would be a shame if a photo like this remained unseen.

    This one suggests the old question: “which of these is not like the others?” The wonderful red-rock-like reflection caught my attention. It suggests the Sphinx, or perhaps a lion. In any event, it provides a nice bit of contrast and interest in the midst of other, very interesting reflections.

  5. What an amazing variety of images within the framework of the overall image. So glad you noticed the potential of the scene and then did whatever editing magic you did to present it like this. Bravo.
