Themes: Geometry

IMG_0403 (Large)

For a long time I have been shooting geometric patterns but it wasn’t really until the last few years that I identified it as a thing.  Up until then, when asked I would have described my photography as being mostly architecture and then added a caveat that I don’t really shoot buildings, its more the details I see; which didn’t really help.  Now I could describe this as abstract architectural photography but Continue reading “Themes: Geometry”

January photo walk in DTLA with Fomapan

The other Saturday I completed my chores in good time and as ‘S’ was away for a few days I decided I had earned a few hours to take myself to Downtown LA for a photo walk.

I do like shooting DTLA as there is plenty of interesting buildings and people about to keep me occupied.  Typically I would always take my Pen-F digital as well as a film camera (just in case) but for this day I decided to go 100% film.  I did still take two cameras the Voigtländer Vitomatic II and the Bessa RF, the latter as it only had a couple of frames remaining which I wanted to finish off.

The Vitomatic was loaded with Fomapan Classic 100; I have a few rolls of this and trying to see if I like it.

It was a lovely sunny say and I centered myself in the area around the Bradbury building; famous for many films including Bladerunner.

The virtually empty Grand Avenue shopping mall in Milwaukee

We stepped into this glorious old shopping mall yesterday which was devoid of any stores apart from TJMax (same as TKMax if you are from the UK) and a fruit n veg cart. It’s a shame that this has become just a walkway between the carpark and another mall, hopefully they will be able to turn it around; it did look like some work was in progress.

Only took a few snaps as we were on a mission. 

Where’s Juliet?

This is another picture from the Burbank Post office, I really like this composition and the way the shadows fall from this balcony.

Burbank Main Post Office Building

I spent a couple of hours recently photographing a couple of buildings in downtown Burbank; City Hall I have already posted about today is the Post Office on Olive Ave.

The building is an Mediterranean-styled building containing elements of the Spanish Colonial Revival, the Mission Style, and the Pueblo Style. It was designed and designed and built in the mid to late 1930s Continue reading “Burbank Main Post Office Building”

Burbank City Hall

I had a little time to spare at the weekend recently so decided to take some pictures of a couple of historic buildings in Burbank.  First up is City Hall.

This is an impressive building in one of my favourite design style ‘Art Deco’  Continue reading “Burbank City Hall”

Church – Alameda Ave

As I mentioned here I stopped by this building earlier this week to get a few pictures as I find it an interesting building.  I’ve always been interested in churches as architectural subjects as they often differ from the norm.  Here in California particularly they often stand out from their surrounding neighbours as they are commonly in commercial or industrial areas where  boring cubes dominate.

I was lucky enough to get there as the sun was getting lower in the sky which gave me some nice light and shadows.

Here are a few images Continue reading “Church – Alameda Ave”

Angles and curves

I’ve been past this church a few times and yesterday I finally stopped to take some photos, here’s one from the session last night

I didn’t have quite the right lens to get the angle I wanted on this but I’m reasonably happy with the result.
