I have no idea why a factory would paint its premises these colours, but they must have had their reasons! This is part of my Industrial Colour series, some of which I have already posted, and many more to come!
Viewers often mistake this photograph, which is part of my ‘abstritecture’ series, as a painting. It may be because the distortion that the warped glass causes gives the effect of brush strokes. It may also be that they don’t necessarily recognise it as Continue reading
When I first stumbled upon this view, my intention was to just take a photo of the bright yellow wall. The fence was in the way however, and as there was only about 3 metres between it and the wall, it was not possible to shoot through the fence Continue reading
When I see a good subject to photograph, I feel I have to hurry to get the shot. That may have been the case in this image, but it was a weekend and the construction crane reflected in the glass windows was not moving Continue reading
This photo just made it to Editor’s Choice on 500px – my first since becoming a member there over 2 years ago 🙂
Sometimes, and only sometimes, an overcast grey sky is better than clear and blue. Had it been the latter on the day I took this photo, then the reflection on the open window may have been too blue and not provided the contrast I needed between the surrounding blue which was a result of the reflective colour used in the glass.
I am sure that some think that minimal urban photography doesn’t have time constraints. After all, buildings don’t move do they? Then again, it depends where your reference. Continue reading
I was staying in a hotel with a colleague of mine and we had a couple of hours to spare between meetings. As I didn’t have a car, and the hotel was in ‘highway wilderness’ my only photography option was to walk around the hotel. Continue reading

For me, the thrill in photography is chasing that unusual subject, composing it in the viewfinder, and pressing the shutter. I also get excitement from first seeing my images on the monitor, as I did in the past with film, seeing my prints come to life in the darkroom. Continue reading
As one does, I was walking through a local industrial estate one Sunday morning when I came across this brightly painted building which really appealed to me. Continue reading
Sometimes the elements just come together. When was trying to take a photograph of this wall which had been partially overpainted, I was moving around trying to find a position to avoid the cable. Continue reading
Urban photography is often about capturing the moment. I came across this scene in early afternoon where workers had obviously vacated their chairs and returned to their offices after enjoying their lunchtime in the warm sunshine. Continue reading
By the very nature of photography, highlights and shadows are an integral feature in most genres of the art. In minimal photography, shadows can be used to very good effect as the subject of the image Continue reading
For those of you who don’t know, Marmite is a famous British branded yeast extract spread. It has lovers and haters, and not much in between. The manufacturers even use this love/hate relationship as a feature of their advertising. Continue reading
