An abstract architectural detail of the Sheraton Downtown Hotel in Denver. I love to use my 70–300mm zoom lens to pick out repetitive patterns like this in architecture. The longer focal lengths (135mm here) “flatten” the perspective, which works really well for subjects like this. I also chose to process the image in black and white so that the image is only concerned with texture and pattern – colour would be more of a distraction here.
I travel for work quite a bit, and I always like to bring my camera with me if possible. Often, work deadlines mean that I don’t actually get a chance to get out and about to take photos, but it’s best to be prepared!
A free evening in Denver’s downtown meant a chance to go and explore the daring shapes of Daniel Libeskind’s Denver Art Museum, seen here cutting through the soft early evening sky like a scalpel blade. I always like to find unusual angles and perspectives with my architectural shots: here, I’m actually standing directly underneath the wedge-shaped building, pointing my lens almost straight up above me.
