Abstraction in the City

Abstract Photography

Reflections Create Abstract Forms

Today in the City of London it is a day within which it is easy to chase light.  Light flows freely along the streets and reflects off the sleek surfaces of modern buildings creating alleyways of illumination.

Photography is about light and our digital sensors love light if you handle it with sensitivity.  The light today gives an opportunity to create an abstract image using London architecture as a starting point.  The shot is visualised as geometric abstract forms through which light creates reflections on the windows and illuminates the stone surfaces of the building.  Abstract form runs through the surface of the image and reflection helps to break the regularity of the geometric offering a softening of its angular lines.  Architects create wonderful visual forms for us to enjoy so let’s go get the photographs!
