One Hour in Carlisle

dsc_3901

Having driven nearly 1500 miles in the UK this week, on the way back home from Scotland I developed a sore back and decided to stop off briefly in Carlisle. I was there about an hour and the walk around did the trick with my back. I was also able to get a capture a few additions for my UK collection of New Topographics images, more of which can be found here I my sales gallery

City Grids

This photograph, taken in Leeds, England, is one of a series of over 50 images from all over the world which, for obvious reasons, I call City Grids. The full series of images can be viewed 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

Shadowy Existence

This is one of those rare images where I have re-visited a location to take further photographs. I was not happy with the first attempt. Thankfully was back in the city a year later, and actually remembered where the building was!

Urban Living

Flora and fauna features very rarely in my photography, probably because I would rather be admiring it than photographing it myself. I also don’t think I have the patience, or skill for that matter, that is normally required for wildlife photography. However, it was the contrast between urban and living that jumped out at me and said ‘you must take a photo of me’. A long lens and wide aperture helped create intrigue by means of the shallow depth of field.
