One of the main reasons that I tend to get behind on literally everything is because I tend to let projects control me, rather than the other way around. Sometimes, it’s ok, as it leads to a new path. On the downside, I get pulled away from essential, but un-fun things that have to be done. Here’s a good example. In the remarkable country of Iceland, replete with non stop, over-loading, mind blowing photo ops, one of my absolute favorite subjects is the Harpa Concert Hall, just down the road from our hotel.
It’s one of our group visits during our first full day before heading out to the countryside. I remember when the Harpa was in construction and couldn’t wait until the following year to get back there to photograph it. However, I really didn’t expect that we could get in very early and use a tripod, and move around without restrictions. Of course, in any country, common sense rules apply, like always defer to anyone coming your way; don’t block passages; and just in general, act like a sane human being.
After the initial outside portrait views, which are magnificent, myriad abstracts relentlessly present themselves, constantly being re-designed as the light passes across the morning sky.
What got me going on this was coming across an image of the Apple Store in Reykjavik, with an excellent clouds and reflected cloud pattern in the glass building. It was instantly clear to me that this would make a pretty good B&W image. Here it is:
This got my blood going to go through some images of the Harpa Concert Hall, which were predominantly shot as abstract patterns.
The following images took up much of yesterday and this morning, but were a lot of fun, resulting in a lost day on work that HAS to get done….maybe next week…
We are really excited to get back to Iceland in June for our workshop and to share this great place, and the incredible Icelandic countryside with our clients. CLICK HERE for more info (few spaces available).
We are excited to get out of here for our Smokies workshops. I hear that conditions are good for the next week and hopefully, the next two weeks for our workshops.
