Shooting with an old Voigtlander: shapes, textures (2)
Shooting monochrome allows me to show complex constructions that would normally not work in a colour photograph. For example, this car park always reminds me of something out of the works of MC Escher.
And this place is not a factory; it’s just a restaurant. The pipes sticking out give it a refurbished look, not unlike some of the things Syd Mead created for Blade Runner, with technical add-ons outgrowing the original buildings.
Notice the difference in the tones of the sky? Well, I wasn’t using any filters, so I can only imagine that it was caused by different weather conditions: blue skies in the first shot, cloud cover in the second photo.
I like the contrasts in this third shot: the Victorian era Lloyds building to the left, the modern-ish building to the right, and the 16th century, wooden panelled pub at the end of the road.
