Taken from Old Street Station looking up at the apartments of the Bezier. For nearly 18 months I worked 5 offices down from this - and still occasionally visit that office and yet I never really took any shots of it - I could never get the composition I liked. I went back a few weekends ago and immediately saw the angles I'd been looking for - as I said recently over on Google+ - its that old adage that familiarity breeds contempt - and this is a case of walking away and coming back to the subject.


This was shot mid afternoon with the sun having burnt most of the clouds away - but the scene came alive - for me anyway.


This is perhaps an odd format - its a 4:3 crop - which is not something I normall use - but the 3:2 just seemed to elongate the scene unnaturally and the building is after all rather bulbous - and due to the vertical correction (-70 in lightroom) there was no chance of a 1:1 crop.
