Black And White Urban Building Restorer

Black And White Urban Building Restorer

I'm writing this at 4.30 am as I have hot feet and about to dive into the freezer.

Coming back from an appointment yesterday I took some urban shots which is a departure for me.



Before I took these shots I too felt abandoned in a sense drifting , but seeing this poor abandoned building I realised what potential I have.

 
With photography it is all about having a go , at the moment I am varying my angles to get different prospective. One time I would have been bothered about the cars being in the shot , but I am reminded of my architectural and history , heritage  background . To breath live into our old buildings is a miraculous achievement.

Whether they are iconic landmarks 


Or as an urban canvas for griffiti form and functionality.
