Untitled #10



  1. Image seen in RSS link, Image seen in iOS, image not visible in IE9. (Red X)
    It could be my works firewall.
    Ahh, you have /// instead of // in your link. IE9 doesn’t like that.

    Just realised…………………..I have the power to delete a /

  2. All I have is a boring old PC at home, where this is perfectly visible! Having read an article about the theft of iphones on the street, I am glad that I have a twelve quid samsung that only connects by voice to another person!!

    Back to the picture. Very clever and very visually satisfying. The mix of SP and something more studied and carefully composed works well. The colours could be out of a designer’s catalogue, but then it seems to be set in the sort of place that gives more than a nod to to design.

  3. Thanks a lot Rex for taking care of the extra /. I don’t know why wordpress does this. The only thing I have done was to click on the ‘img’ button and enter the URL of the image in the pop-up box. I remember this being the case with an earlier post of mine so I will have to pay more attention next time.

  4. Hi John,

    Count your blessings with your mobile phone which can merely make a phone call. I am way too dependent on my ‘smart’ phone nowadays, it is really something which takes over one’s life. There is the increasingly diminishing line between work and private life, answering emails from coworkers in the middle of the night or on a Sunday afternoon, etc. It is a curse in disguise.

    The place where this was taken gives indeed more than a nod to design. It was the New York Museum of Modern Art, NY MOMA.

  5. This image hits my sweet points. Well seen and captured, I love the Z’s of the stairs and the echo in the light across the wall. It almost comes across as a picture in a mount.

  6. Excellent work Cem. The graphical image is completed by two things – the person sitting on the steps and the streaks of light across the front plane. As ever, your use of colour is good – perfectly controlled and not looking contrived.

    • Oh, the good thing about smartphones is that their batteries don’t last long. I did actually recommend a Nokia N8 to someone wanting a camera to run with the other day!

  7. what a fantastic picture! I’ve been enjoying this since you posted it.
    Including the lines of light on the walls is fantastic, the stairs, the lonely figure. The open space under the stairs is something you rarely see in any building design, the architect did a great job here. The only warmth in the picture is where the person is, while they are in a warm environment they are alone which is often conveyed with a slight blue/cold touch (well it works that way in my eyes), so possibly a contridiction.
    I rarely swear to punctuate my pleasure or pain but I almost want to say beeping brilliant.

    • I agree with your analysis Robert, this is ****** brilliant! :-)

  8. You know, something that I didn’t originally pick up on that I find interesting is the impact of the ‘ceiling’ or ‘square tubes’ in the upper right of the frame. They fundamentally change the reading of the picture by adding depth. If they weren’t there then you would have a picture of a picture, quite an analytical or cold framing. However, by giving depth they seem to add to the reality or life of what would otherwise be an impossibly clean image.

  9. Sorry so late to this party. I have been enjoying this image as well, and agree with all the accolades. Beautifully designed.
