shapes…

peace and blessings be with you.

 

one of the things I realized in hindsight  about photography that I enjoy, is being able to see relationships of things to each other…

 

the relationship of a multinational petroleum supplier to the atmosphere for example…

total...

total...

I like the shape of the incursion into the open space of the sky, and the contrast of the red and blue.

 

in continuing with the theme of shapes , and skies…

another thing about photography that I also enjoy is that occasionally one finds oneself looking up.

from the outside , the two buildings above have an almost science fiction futuristic feel, and could as easily be outposts on an alien planet. the words grim, stark and authoritarian springs to mind….though there is a an appealing comfort in the predictability, the feelings of solidness of the structures that has to mentioned. it could also be the governments approach to modern art?

is there anyone out there that can answer a question for me? were these buildings constructed during apartheid? I am of the opinion that they were.

 

as always I look forward to your comments.

 

salaam
