Picture Window

Taken by Caz on Tuesday, 18th July 2006

Picture WindowTitle: Picture Window
Location: Barbican, London
Camera: Canon EOS 300D / Canon 75-300mm USM IS
Notes: Out on an evening photowalk around London Wall, the reflection of the Barbican towers in the windows of an office block caught my eye. I love all the distortion – and the colour contrast between the two buildings.

Under The Pyramide

Taken by Caz on Monday, 19th April 1999

Under The Pyramide Title: Under The Pyramide
Location: Louvre, Paris
Camera: Canon EOS 100 / Vivitar 19-35mm EF
Film: Ilford FP4 125
Notes: The main entrance to the Louvre is now under this huge glass pyramid which sits right in the middle of the main courtyard. When the sun comes out, the atrium beneath is criss-crossed with the shadows made by the diamond panes of glass. This was one of the 15 images I used to gain my ARPS distinction in 1999.

Louvre Geometry

Location: Louvre, Paris

Film: Agfa CTX 200
Notes: Another shot of the Louvre, this time showing the triangular fountains in the courtyard.

Two From Toronto

Taken by Caz on Sunday, 2nd August 1998

Reaching Skyward Title: Reaching Skyward
Location: St Lawrence Market, Toronto
Camera: Canon EOS 100 / Vivitar 19-35mm EF
Film: Ilford FP4 125
Notes: This is part of the structure which illuminates the uderground PATH system beneath Toronto’s business district. The canopies allow light to flood the subterranian corridors and provide ornament above ground. This was one of the 15 images I used to gain my ARPS distinction in 1999.

Glass Arrow Title: Glass Arrow
Location: Commerce Court, Toronto
Camera: Canon EOS 100 / Vivitar 19-35mm EF
Film: Ilford FP4 125
Notes: This glass canopy over a revolving doorway of Commerce Court attracted my attention. I liked the way the different patterns and shapes interacted, while still preserving the overall dynamic shape. Another one of the 15 images I used to gain my ARPS distinction in 1999.

A Trio From Docklands

Taken by Caz on Sunday, 26th October 1997

South Quay Footbridge Title: South Quay Footbridge
Location: South Quay, Docklands
Camera: Canon EOS 100 / Canon 75-300mm EF
Film: Ilford FP4 125
Notes: There used to be this wonderful footbridge at South Quay in Docklands. It had a marvellous S-curve as it snaked its way across the water to the other side. The people add an extra dimension to the picture, they are placed in a dominant position on the bridge and lead the eye into the frame. This view was taken from the stairs leading up to South Quay DLR station – which has now been boxed in. It doesn’t matter though, because when the Jubliee Line extension via Docklands was built, they filled in half of this quay and chopped the bridge up. So, another image which cannot be repeated now. I’m glad I saw it in its heyday in 1997. It helped me gain my ARPS in 1999, so I definitely have fond memories of it.

Vaulted Roof Title: Vaulted Roof
Location: Canary Wharf DLR Station, Docklands
Camera: Canon EOS 100 / Vivitar 19-35mm EF
Film: Ilford FP4 125
Notes: The roof structure at Canary Wharf station on the DLR has often fascinated me. I wanted to show the patterns in the canopy and lighting in an abstract manner. The low viewpoint and wide angle lens have helped to exaggerate the perspective of the curves. Another which helped me gain my ARPS in 1999, so I definitely have fond memories of it.

Vent Tops Title: Vent Tops
Location: Canary Wharf Shopping Centre, Docklands
Camera: Canon EOS 100 / Vivitar 19-35mm EF
Film: Ilford FP4 125
Notes: The tops of these vents made a striking subject for a picture, with the background pair echoing the larger foreground example. The diagonal formed by the escalator leads the eye in towards the main subject. Yet another which helped me gain my ARPS in 1999, so I definitely have fond memories of it.

Chapel Of Thorns

Taken by Caz on Friday, 11th July 1997

Chapel Of Thorns Title: Chapel Of Thorns
Location: Side Chapel, Coventry Cathedral, Warwickshire
Camera: Canon EOS 100 / Vivitar 19-35mm EF
Film: Ilford FP4 125
Notes: This quiet side chapel is circular and contains a modern alter in the middle of the room. The crown of thorns is made from nails salvaged from the Cathedral roof which was destroyed during World War II. This was one of the 15 images I used to gain my ARPS distinction in 1999.
