I am fascinated by how slightest irregularities gives wonderful juxtaposition to the otherwise clean lines found in modern architecture. Even the flatest looking window pane is likely to have some warping, which is excellent for creating abstract photography out of geomentric structures.
One of my favourite photographic subjects is lines in minimalist photography. Lines can be vertical, horizontal, or even diagonal, and work equally well in colour and black and white compositions. More of my lines series can be found in my sales gallery here
Shape, form, and colour is often key to my minimalist images. Here is one I took recently while on holiday in Verona, Italy. More can be found, and even bought as prints etc. here

Whilst I am very lucky to be able to travel the world for work, and visit some very exciting and photogenic cities, sometimes I find great subject matter right on my doorstep. This interesting wall was found outside a very busy supermarket, Continue reading
