Glasgow 5.6

A series of images of street scenes and architectural abstracts taken in Glasgow city centre.

All of the photographs were taken at an aperture of F/5.6 or larger (hence the title). While most have been rendered in black and white – I felt that one or two of them benefited from retention of colour.

The images were taken with focal lengths between 75mm and 200mm in order to make the compositions tighter and more compact – conveying the impression of urban density, especially in the street scenes and making the buildings seem more imposing than they actually are. The close crops are also aimed to leave the heights of the buildings to the imagination of the viewer.
