Newcastle-upon-Tyne is full of big, bold shapes, so different from the softer forms of the countryside. The city environment is perfect for black and white images, which is particularly apt for The Toon and its famous two-tone football strip. I find that monochrome can add an edgy dimension to photos, as well as emphasising the repeating patters and stark outlines of the architecture.
The shapes of this office block seemed almost alien in design to me.
The same building appears again on the right of this shot, which again is about unnatural rigid shapes and the contrast to those brought by the solitary bird.
Of course cities are there for the people that populate them. This following shot was my personal favourite of the day.
