Black Windows

Although I have done some editing to eliminate reflections from the glass in the window, most of the work was done when taking the shot. I often have to move around to adjust the reflection to my liking, sometimes to include it, sometimes not. More of my minimal style windows can be found in my sales gallery

In earlier posts I have complained about the difficulties involved in urban minimalism, particularly in trying to avoid distractions such as trees and lamp posts. On this occasion however, the ‘distracting’ lamp post, for me, provided the perfect balance in the composition.

My very first post on this blog was ‘Minimalism is like Marmite’ and I felt this image summed up this title so well I thought I would revisit. Many will see this as just too simple to appreciate. Where is the subject? Where is the detail? However, if you are like me, you will see beauty in the arrangement and balance of the shapes, being the essence of minimalism in photography.

We’re Watching You!

This photo was taken close to the entrance of a block of apartments. The window was reflective, and I am assuming one way view for security guards to look out. I probably spent five minutes taking photos of this wall, and do wonder what the security guards, if present, were actually thinking!
