Buildings

I suppose, if I was being posh, I would have called this architecture but the fact is these images are of buildings! I'm interested in the reflections of modern buildings and old buildings that look as if they're about to be demolished. I've often noticed that the reflections have more information in them than a straightforward photograph. ​

This page is work in (very slow) progress.

Hotel Atrium

This hotel is in Dubai (I can't remember the name). The image is a more conventional version of the next picture.

This hotel is in Dubai (see previous comments). I like the fact it looks as though the lifts are almost horizontal.

This hotel is in Singapore (yes, you guessed it I can't remember the name). It was Christmas though - you can see the decorations hanging from the window balconies.

The ghost of the Red Lady
The ghost of the Red Lady

This is the Lock and Store warehouse in Eastleigh near Southampton. We put most of our worldly goods in here before we moved to Eday. If you were unlucky the Red Lady would visit you saying, "Don't put that there. I won't be able to get at it later!"

Taken from the hotel opposite (OK you know what's coming - no I don't know the name). We were in Ho Chi Min City (Saigon). If you look closely you can see a different picture in each window.

Reflections of a minaret
Reflections of a minaret

In certain Middle East countries it's illegal to photograph the mosque, public buildings or banks. The reflections of this minaret were in the glass curtain wall of a bank! Note to photography competition judges Photoshop has not been used!

Reflections of a hotel!

The Shangri la hotel in Singapore (yes that fooled you didn't it - I remembered that one). This is the reflection of the Valley Wing in the glass wall of the fitness suite. It looks like the centre of the block has collapsed (it hadn't).

The chicken house window

What more can I say. It's the window at the end of our chicken house!
