Duo From La Villette

Taken by Caz on Thursday, 22nd April 1999

Into The Géode Title: Into The Géode
Location: Parc de la Villette, Paris
Camera: Canon EOS 100 / Canon 28-105mm EF
Film: Ilford FP4 125
Notes: This is part of the Musée des Sciences et de l’Industrie complex in La Parc de la Vilette, north east Paris. This looks rather sinister and Orwellian, as if the humans are about to enter some great munching machine. The building was built to be an abbatoir before being turned into the museum. This was one of the 15 images I used to gain my ARPS distinction in 1999.

Cité de la Musique Title: Cité de la Musique
Location: Parc de la Villette, Paris
Camera: Canon EOS 100 / Vivitar 19-35mm EF
Film: Ilford FP4 125
Notes: This is part of the Cité de la Musique complex in La Parc de la Vilette, north east Paris. The architecture is varied and contemporary. I though this bit looked like a spacecraft had just landed. Another one of the 15 images I used to gain my ARPS distinction in 1999.

Keynote

Taken by Caz on Sunday, 7th August 1994

Keynote Title: Keynote
Location: Ingatestone, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 650 / Canon 50mm EF
Film: Ilford FP4 125
Notes: I had the idea of photographing my Clarinet, and thought the background of the sheet music would complement the black ebony and chrome metalwork as well as providing a musical link. I wanted to concentrate on a small section of the instrument, particularly the complex keys, which make an attractive design and hold the viewer’s attention. This was one of the 10 images I used to gain my LRPS distinction in 1995.

Fire Queen

Taken by Caz on Monday, 4th July 1994

Fire Queen Title: Fire Queen
Location: Penrhyn Castle Museum, North Wales
Camera: Canon EOS 650 / Canon 28mm EF
Film: Ilford FP4 125
Notes: This exhibit was inside the castle, but in a well-lit corridor with large floor-to-ceiling windows. Access around the engine was limited, so I had to use a wide angle lens from close up to include all the detail I wanted and still avoid extraneous parts of the surroundings. I liked the design that the central piston made through the frame, which gives it a dynamic diagonal. The polished surfaces and hard textures give the subject the feel of engineering at its peak, ready to unleash its power. This was one of the 10 images I used to gain my LRPS distinction in 1995.
