For eons I’ve been trying to decide if I would do a monthly feature. More importantly what I would do for a monthly feature. I’ve been tumbling between so many themes (graffiti, people, countries, the list goes on and on) but everything seemed horribly cliche.
This continued until someone perusing my portfolio noted that a lot of my photographs are of me looking up at monuments and buildings, attempting to make something that is photographed by everyone with a phone into something a bit unique, and wham ‘Looking Up Monthly’ was born!
Numero uno is the most recent one I took, the BT Tower in London. For those of you who don’t live in the UK it may seem to be nothing but a glorified telephone mast but when it was built in the 1960s it was the tallest building in London and even now its still holds its own in the city landscape shooting up around it.
To many it is an eye sore, but to me it is quite simply an icon in its own right.
