  1. Monochromatic, in blue.

  2. From your Blue Period? The blue through the glass is quite disturbing. If it wasn’t for the white frame there would be comments about white balance!

  3. Yes, blue – well done! Not my blue period but London’s. This series is about how London looks to anyone walking around it so you would have to be ready to be disturbed when you come across a blue glass window.

  4. White balance indeed! Given everything one could look at and ponder in this shot I keep being drawn to the bottom right triangle of nothing! The pedestrian seems a vital part of this as well though. Not sure where they should be placed for best effect but certainly need that raised foot…ties in with the bottom right triangle.

  5. OK, so the blue joke has been done :-)

    This a very effective frame within a frame. I get drawn to that bright white corner, but then pushed back into the picture, where I find everything perfectly placed.

  6. Now here is one that would not work the same way in black and white.

    That corner frame attracts my attention, too — by virtue of it not being blue. It does work, but as noted, the view through the glass is disturbing.

  7. I find the ‘disturbing’ angle interesting: does that mean that encountering this form of coloured window is disturbing in general I wonder?

  8. Most has been said. With repeated viewings I seem to see past the blue cast, even if I cover the white frame. Nice balance of angles & perfect timing with the walker.

  9. This is disorienting. The white on the window doesn’t jibe with what my eye reads as a strong color cast. The effect is to set me back on my heels. I wonder what this does to people who regularly see the world through this filter. The tension between what I see and what I want to see is interesting.
