Shadows dressing architectural spaces

A pattern of shadows, under a glass fassade, pure magic in one of Madrid's main roads. We had a splendid end of summer light throught the day, perfect for photography. Thanks to my unknown model, a perfect match for my pattern.

My handy mini Lumix did an extremely good job.

Through the night...

Empty Geneva streets at night have a special mystery and quiteness. This picture was taken around midnight, I stopped for a little while in front of the Musée d Art et d'Histoire only interrupted by the occasional car or passer by.

Lights and Shadows... see hereunder for more details:

Study about lights and shadows. I wasn't in the mood for night outdoors photography, so there was no other solution than being creative at home. Daily objects can be transformed into highly interesting photography subjects. For this picture I used a zoom-in technique during 2.5 sec. exposure to give the impression of movement of the object itself and its shadows. Edited with Nik filters in Photoshop to give an ancient camera look and to add a bit more drama to it. Comments are welcomed!

Le Jet d'eau revisited, Geneva

Le jet d'eau, the Water fountain is one of Geneva's icons. Here pictured at night with very poor light conditions, trying to improvise a tripod with everything I had in my bag and taking care not to get wet at the same time.

Exploring the lines at the British Museum, London, UK

Exploring interactions of people and spaces. It took me a while to find the right person and the right angle... good for practicing patience! Taken at the British Museum, London

Designed by Foster and Partners and engineered by Buro Happold, the Great Court of theBritish Museum is absolutely stunnishing with flows of light coming everywhere.

San Petersburgo_Kanonersky-4260.jpg

Kanoniersky Island, Saint Petersburg, Russia

Kanonersky Island, one of Saint Petersburg Islands, an old artillery gunpowder depotwas built on the island. It has a post-industrialist favour. Nowadays ships pass near the island through the ship canal to the dam and further. Some docks and piers are working around, a highway is under construction. I went there on a wild photographic tourwith russian friends trying to find signs of decay, and there are many!
