Panoramic Fforde picture


Leeds Library and Town Hall, 2009

This was taken with my Mamiya 7, a medium format camera, and although upon first glance the picture didn't work - too much top and bottom - as a cropped panoramic picture it works very well indeed. It was the lunch hour, and couples were meeting before going back to their respective offices.

Kington Show, Herefordshire.

This is the Kington show, in the vintage motorcycle section. I'm not sure whay I include it here, but I liked the composition. The square format of 6X6 sometimes doesn't fit the subject, and it's only later, once I have cropped them out, does the picture start to work. 2010.

Panoramic Fforde picture,

Ceiling of Grand Central Station, New York.

The designers painted the stars in reverse, as that was the map they worked from - a reflection of the stars, not how they are laid out. Popular legend tells us this is 'as God would see it' but since stars are not equidistant, this is not a view you could see from anywhere in the cosmos - except here, and glorious it is. Whenever I go to NY, I always take time to wander thourhg this magnificent hall. And to think it was once slated for demolition.

Olympus EP-5, 14mm, twelve exposures, stitched.
