George Street

A series of images taken along an approximately half-mile stretch of George Street and Duke Street on the periphery of the city centre in Glasgow, Scotland.

All of these images were taken at an aperture of F/5.6 or larger and focal length between 55mm and 200mm.The images were rendered in black and white to convey the form of the subjects, without distraction of colour, except in cases where I felt the image benefited from retention of colour.

As with the Glasgow 5.6 project the intention of the compositions is to partly leave the scale of the buildings and the density of the surrounding area to the imagination of the viewer.
