Mosaic


This was one of the houses on our short trip of Italy
I wasnt really prepared for the interior of the grand looking mansion on the top of a hill
but the whole 1st level was room upon room of intricate mosaic filled splendour
there were rooms all in white, colour and everything in between

Five days in Italy


Sometimes I reflect on my hobby and it does seem a little crazy
5 days in a car in Italy driving from Rome to Turin and some stunning scenery

Rome, Florence, Bologna, Turin – some of the most stunning cities (apparently) and I didnt get to see any of them
Instead I decide to seek out the abandoned and derelict places in the outskirts of these cities

Still it was an amazing trip, over 1500 kms some stories to tell and photos to share and memories which is the most important thing

stay tuned for the photos…

Micro Landscapes


This is fresh from a post christmas outing today
although it looks like a night scene, this was a very underexposed image of a shaft of sunlight in a derelict brickworks
lots of bricks with moss and plants growing in between them just caught the light at the right time and it came out like this

Dwelling


One of the reasons that Star Wars doesnt look like its dated is that they took traditional looking architecture and inspiration from the native surrounds of Tunisia and then added futuristic looking doors and computer panels to this
It was actually really interesting seeing these up close, what looked like randomly attached pipes and circuit boards but when you see it on the film, it really works giving the scenes an otherworldly futuristic but also old world feel to them
