Is it real?

I am regularly asked this question when sharing my images. Each time I have to say yes, it is real. I walk the streets to find these unusual building and objects; that is the pleasure for me. I couldn’t think of anything worse than sitting at home on my computer making these things up. I know others do, and that is fine, but I don’t.

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.

White Windows

This may look like part of an industrial building, but in fact this was residential. Thankfully the sun was so bright that the residents had closed their blinds, otherwise I feel the scene would have been ruined, at least from a minimal photography perspective.

Looks Can Deceive

Whilst this facade may have a touch of a Scandinavian feel, in reality it is from an industrial building near the cente of Denver, Colorado. This is one of the beauties of minimalism, using a tight composition to remove context and therefore deceive the eye.
