Description Sun Building Lamp Architecture Prints on Sale. I feel this photograph represents my most creative work, in terms of how my use of the camera adds to the overall effect of the image.I love the effect created by the angular shape of the building, jutting outwards into the blue sky of the frame, like a grand old ship making its way out to beautiful blue seas. The clouds above the lamp post look like a plume of white smoke from the ships engines. The lamp post takes the form of the ships smoke stakes, somehow disconnected from the body of the ship. This disconnection gives the photograph a deconstructionist feel, which I really enjoy.The reflection of sky and clouds in the windows of the building add depth and interest to the image. I think they also add a sense of movement, which helps bring the building alive as an ocean-going vessel. The intentional use of lens flare and the intensity of the bright, white sunlight give the photograph a dream-like quality. I feel this enhances the effect of the image and once again adds to the sense of movement within the photograph.This photograph was taken on Luxembourgs Cloche DOr, which is just on the edge of the capital city. I took the photo on a sunny summers day in 2010. Luxembourg is a small country in the heart of Western Europe. architectural, art, artwork, buy, contemporary, modern, photography, photos, sale, wall
Toby Davis, Luxembourg Member Since May 2010 Artist Statement Hello. I’m Toby and welcome to my photography gallery. If you have the time, take a moment to browse. Maybe one of my photographs will stand up and sing for you.
For me, photography is about sharing my eyes with the world. It is an intensely intimate act to show another what you see; to struggle to capture what you find to be beautiful. I find beauty in the very striking, monumental and picturesque, but I also find beauty in the mundane, ignored and functional. To truly capture the elevation of the eye-catching and elevate the subtle of the passed-by is the ultimate test and responsibility of a photographer.
As you browse my store, you’ll notice that there are relatively few photographs. To my mind most of the photos I take are journeys, not destinations. I only sell my very best work.
