Miami, Florida

During a recent business trip to Miami. Florida, I was lucky enough to get some free time. However, rather than head to the beach or the everglades, in typical style I chose the local industrial estates for my rest and relaxation. For more of my photographic musings in Miami, please click here

Getting distracted

I often mention in my blogs about how I try to avoid distracting objects like streetlights and trees. Well, in this example, without the streetlight it would have been plain boring. Sometimes a bit of distraction is good, sometimes it is essential! More of my black and white minimalism can be found here

Show me the colour

Sometimes converting images to black and white works, sometimes not. in this case I had little choice, as the steel structure was very monochrome. In fact, going back to the unedited file, I can’t tell if I ever converted it, although there may have been a slight cyan cast in the shadows.

On Parade

More often than not I am trying to avoid trees and other street ‘obstacles’ in order to get a clean view of my intended subject. Not here. The sun was at a perfect angle,  with the ‘on parade’ trees bathed in brightness, providing superb contrast with the shaded wall.

Is my obsession unhealthy?

When I am in a city, I often meet and converse with fellow photographers, but never do I see any when wandering around industrial estates at the weekend, as those of you who read my blog reglulary know I do. I was therefore wondering if this was an unhealthy obsession of mine?

Green, red, and shadow

I include this photo as part of my Industrial Minimalism project. In reality however it is a retail store frontage with the shutters closed. I could change the name of the project to Industrial and Retail Minimalism but it doesn’t seem to have the same ring to it.

Industrial Colour

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!
