Every inch of urban space gets used one way or another.

Modern

Modern art and an over designed park.


Strange

This photo looked pretty much like this out of the camera – artsy, painterly. Tried to do something to tone it down but then decided its persistence to revert to the original mood needed to be respected.


Colourful

In my view colour can add majesty and impact. Sometimes even with the mundane.

The next six days of photos were all processed with Skylum’s Luminar Neo. I can best describe it as Photolemur with adjustments. It can be used as a stand alone processor but I am using it as a filter in Photoshop.


The Professional View

The title of this post refers to how the architect probably wanted his glass and steel to look.


Not the Tropics

Always great to see people doing wonderful things with the mundane.


Symmetry

Symmetry is often interesting and eye catching.


Area 51

I am sure Area 51 is not what we imagine it to be, and there are plenty of strange things here at home.


Not the Mediterranean

My long time abroad has left me with pleasant memories of Europe only seldom hinted at by North American Architecture.

Among the strange things I saw on the street.


What It Used to Look Like

There are a lot of renovations going on now and thankfully many try to preserve as much of the past as possible.


Door

This door faces on to a major street, it is pressed between more modern buildings with less dignity.


Dignity

Amid all the modern metal you can still find places with dignity.


A Riot of Windows

The shadows as much as the windows caught my eye. 


What the Window Saw

Spooky window, a consequence of light and shadow and reflection.


What the Window Saw

A window facing bars. Not a jail but a water treatment plant.


Distortions

Old glass is great for nice distortions, especially the reflections. 


The Weekend

Walking the neighbourhood you could be envious of many of the wonderful balconies. Pity is you almost never see anyone using them.
