Skewed Lines – Urban Art
I love to observe and photograph the skewed lines and shapes produced by reflections. Whether the distortions are created by windows or water surfaces, I think they produce beautiful pieces of abstract art.
In this case I photographed a big wall of windows on a building in Bremerhaven, Germany. I found it in a small harbor, more like a marina for leisure boating in this area of the city. It was a cold but sunny winter morning, and because we spent the night in a hotel located right on the waterside, I took my camera and stepped out, in the crisp January air – the light was fantastic and everything was just perfect for some great pictures. The place was quite busy: some people were going to work, others were just starting their day in the house boats parked in the marina. I looked at this modern building across the water several times and noticed that all this activity was continuously reflected in this glass wall.
I spent some time watching the moving skewed lines and shapes reflected there, as a huge living urban art by a genius architect. I was simply captivated and I could have spent hours and hours in front of it, if my husband was not waiting for me to get to the breakfast and hit the road.
