Upwards and onwards

During the last couple of months, I have been fascinated by the sky, yes the sky! Usually carrying my SLR around with me ready to whip out at the sight of a beautiful sunrise or sunset all over the London skylines. Maybe this weird infatuation is due to the extensive amount of documentaries I watch, national geo for one, or any type of environmental/space or historical based shows. The subliminal need to see and to associate picturesque scenes around me from all the documentaries that have entered my mind. It may also be due to my Architectural background that I feel compelled to stop and watch these sunsets mirrored in the reflection of certain buildings, the ever changing sky above reflected in the ever changing landscape. The need to have a perfect photoshopped sunset included in a section I may draw during the day. Who knows! But recently on my travels whether it be coming back from my daily commute or around random treks around London, I have witnessed the most beautiful skies. It were as if the creator is proving his creation to me.

I’ve been given the odd weird glance and understandably so as at traffic lights i have held my SLR directly skywards instead of crossing the street. Which in my defense, was something that i had to do. But I urge everyone to have a look up once in a while, forget exotic South America, and beautiful skylines of Africa and Asia. London and other urban cities can be just as beautiful! keep watching the skies people, and i’m sure you’ll see something just as spectacular as I have.
