A work-in-progress accordion style book on the high rise buildings theme ... ...
Front to which I will add words (a few)
Back to be presented as is (probably).
All images were generated in Photoshop Elements as is my usual practice, with much cutting and repositioning of layers, resizing and recolouring.
There is still much to be worked on - words to be added, size and final format to be decided ... and I'm really not sure about those little punched holes, especially and distractingly visible against good light in these photos.
Blogging and then looking with the critical eye of the viewer not the creator certainly has its purpose!

I've been working further from an image posted last year at the very beginning of explorations for Inhabit, Brunel Broderers' exhibition in Stroud later this year. During a visit to Sydney, Australia, a few years ago, I saw and photographed this striking high rise building a few years ago just behind Darling Harbour as I passed by on the top deck of a bus.
Despite a relatively fleeting impression, this image has remained with me and is providing endless hours of visual challenge as I experiment with the structure, reflections and colour within. It seems to be offering me particularly fruitful opportunities to produce abstract images in Adobe Photoshop Elements for our new theme of Inhabit.
