I took this city photography in and around Scotland, but there are a few from cities beyond. They are good for exploring architecture and textures, trying to knit a view of interest while excluding extraneous detail. Random things happen in cities.
The Wallace Monument was built by my wife’s father, as I explained to my children when they were young. You could tell because if you looked closely you could see he ‘missed a bit’! Capturing the brickwork means an early start for sunrise, but worth it.
When walking around a City your senses are seduced by bright lights, signs, noises and yes Lush – smells. Try looking up. The building walls, architecture, materials can reveal a City’s past, present and future. So ignore the shop chains and look-up for a new perspective.
