It’s all in the detail


The building I was photographing here was a fairly boring, almost brutalist style concrete structure. Here I have focussed my composition on a section of the structure, just as the concrete protrusions were casting shadows, all perfectly in line with the windows.


On the diagonal


Most of my minimal images are straight on shots, or are straightened in post processing. Occasionally though, I can’t get near enough without getting lens distortion, so the fallback is to shoot at an angle. More ‘lines in minimalism’ can be found in this collection


I got distracted


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.
