More interesting architectural patterns from ordinary things in Cardiff Metropolitan University’s new building at Llandaff.
Last week we went to see the BA degree shows at Cardiff Metropolitan University, but before I show you some of the great work they have been doing, I am going to post some of the “art” of the new building they have there.
Kirkandrews is a tiny wee place but worth a visit if you are ever in the Galloway area of SW Scotland.
We first visited this place with the kids about 10 or 15 years ago. I am still impressed with my girls’ stamina and enjoyment of what was a fair length of walk for young children. We had an unexpected surprise in the graveyard a few yards down the road from the kirk but you will have to wait until tomorrow for that.
My walk along the Borgue road on the Galloway coast in Scotland revealed a number of places for sale. However, although the gates in the first image are no longer in use, from what I could see, the estate behind them is. I wonder if this entrance will ever be used again.
The building in the second image is not the same place and is just waiting for someone to take an interest greater than photography.
Which of these three colour adjustments do you prefer?
I have photographed this building in Swansea on a number of occasions and every time, as you would expect, it is different. Whether it be the time of day, the angle viewed, the weather conditions or the camera settings, the appearance of the photos taken will always produce dramatically different images.
All of these things combined are what makes the difference of course. On this occasion the tower viewed from this angle in the early evening light of a semi overcast hazy day was what gave me this image.
However, there is one other point that can severely affect how you see an image – the calibration of your computer screen. The first image here is a compromise necessitated by the differences between my two ageing monitors which have become impossible to match in calibration. I have become familiar with these monitors and am able to make adjustments to give me images I am happy with when seen on other people’s computers (most of the time). There are so many variables with this that I make a point of collaborating closely with the printer whenever I am not printing the image myself.
My final check for colour adjustment at the moment is my iPhone – if it look alright on that (colour wise), then the chances are it will look OK on other screens.
