Facade

Just off Oxford Street in central London down an alleyway on the way to the Photographers Gallery you will find this facade. An abstract on a grand scale. Layered reflective strips creating a fractured surrealistic impression of neighbouring properties. A one-off, fascinating building to which I will return.

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.

  1. Nicely spotted. I like the abstract reflection and colours in this one.

    How attractive. London’s buildings have so much to offer to the discerning photographer!

      London is a fascinating place to take pictures. At first glance sometimes, one views its development and thinks: more of the same. But when I really get down into the detail there is such variety. And I’ve never seen anything quite like this

  3. An interesting first shot, Andy! Glad you will be returning.

    I love this image, Andy! When I first saw it in passing I thought it was water … but what a delightful surprise it was to realize it was another element altogether (air!).

    • LensScaper says:

      Yes, Heide, it is rather like rippled water. Another example of how, changing one’s position by only a few feet, will completely alter the content and colour of the image

    Abstract indeed, Andy!

    It looks like it’s made from the world’s best-ever, large-scale, reflective Popsicle sticks!

  7. FABULOUS image. You never fail to impress me. 🙂
