Inspired by a street photography exhibition I visited in London today I spent the afternoon at Tate Modern to try and capture some interesting images of my own.
I love the architecture at Tate Modern as it provides so many corners with interesting play of light. Each time I found an eye-catching combination of structure and light I paused for a few minutes, waiting for the right character to walk into the scene. Given that these photos are all about light and shape monochrome was the natural choice when I came to edit them.
Having walked up as far as the fourth floor of the museum’s new wing I took the bridge across to the other side of the building. Here I found a wall covered in lurid orange carpet for people to create their own art in the pile. It didn’t strike me as particularly photogenic, but what did pull my eye was the effect it had on the reflective surfaces on the bridge. With such vivid tones, these pictures just had to remain in colour!
