Armed with an Iphone in London it’s kinda impossible not take take at least a few smart shots wondering about about on the South Bank. The architecture there is amazing and if in doubt… look up! Huge girders everywhere.
Buying an iphone actually started to get me interested in photography. Having a dinky little camera, constantly in your pocket, suddenly makes photography accessible 24/7. Some of the shots here have been tinkered a little with in photoshop but, essentially, they’re iPhone pics just using Apple’s ‘onboard’ filters. They heavy industrial and Brutalist styles of so much of the South Bank architecture makes it virtually impossible not to find something stark an’ stylish to photograph. Having noticed the #LookUp hash tag in Instagram I did indeed start to ‘look up’ an awful lot more. It’s amazing what you totally fail to appreciate on a daily basis – and several of these shots are taken with the iPhone held ‘face up horizontal’ and jammed again the edge of some girders just to try and get the crazy upwards perspective of London’s buildings across in the shot! Big buildings sailing along.
