Occasionally I spend a little time photographing the built environment. In that setting I enjoy working with form, texture and colour. The results often tend toward abstraction. Sometimes I also throw in a bit of political commentary.
Unlike my current nature work, in this milieu I often use 35mm film cameras or compact digital cameras. I find that the slightly rough technical quality (imperfect colour, grain/noise) often complements the subjects.
