This week we thought we’d showcase our love of architecture. The team are very lucky to get to photograph some amazing spaces but also to take beautiful photography of the places we travel and buildings we find interesting. Here’s our little selection and we’d love you to join in and share your own.
I wanted to share this image of The Gherkin, shot last summer. It’s a building which fascinates me. The many panes of individual glass and it’s unique shape make you transfixed as it gives you little glimpses from other landmarks in London. For me I wanted to capture a slightly different viewpoint so I found a gap in between cars and got right down low to shoot upwards to enhance the feeling of grandure and height that this building imposes on it’s surroundings. The dramatic sky was pure luck – we all need that from time to time.
New York City, one of my favourite places on earth. This is Rockerfeller Centre, nestled in between 48th and 51st street in Midtown Manhattan. It’s home to television studios, businesses, restaurants and shops and is always a ‘must visit’ whenever I go. If you’ve ever seen the iconic Christmas tree and ice skating rink on any movie, this is where it was set. Rockerfeller Centre
I love cities, and I am continually fascinated by architecture. I have been to New York and the architecture there is something to behold, and I considered sharing a view of Manhattan from the Staten Island Ferry. I then considered a shot of The Shard from my beautiful home city of London. But I decided to go with the shoreline in Boston, that I took as we were off whale watching. Boston is an incredible city – so full of history. This day was cold, but with bright blue skies and the city just looks beautiful from the harbour.
For this theme I was instantly drawn back to a visit to Barcelona at Easter this year. While the city is full of iconic buildings and stand out pieces of architecture the image that summed up Barcelona for me was this one of the back streets leading off from La Rambla, the high buildings providing shade, gardens in the sky and the arteries of the city. Here my husband is carrying a very tired little Kate home from another day of sightseeing and eating endless raspberry gelato.
We haven’t got much in the way of grand architecture going on down in Cornwall, but I do love a nice London landmark!
