while answering some questions for an article earlier last week, I came across a question that I haven’t been able to get out of my mind. It revolves around the dark and moody look to my images.

Although I have quite a few dark images and love creating them, I would not particularly say that it’s my style or speciality. For me. it is an entirely different point of view. I like also do like to create the perfectly well tonality balanced images but it is not always my outlook or what I envisioned.

What one must understand is that I am fascinated by dark and moody paintings and I am also fascinated by weather. Fog, snow and storms truly fascinate me. Although I love creating these images now, it is impossible for me to say whether I will be creating these in the next year let alone in the next few months.

I am grateful to everyone that shows interest in my work but I find it hard not to feel like I am being put in a box.

My work has been classified as architectural by many including myself. Having had a closer look, I’ve come to understand that my images only have an essence of the architecture.

They are quite a few things that I capture but refrain from sharing because I have yet to find my personal touch in these subjects. Although I started with architecture, it had changed over the years as one would expect but I am nowhere near where I would like to be so I practice my craft and share them with you.

To follow the dark theme of this post, I am sharing this image with you. An image that I created late last year but I refrained from sharing as I felt that it was too dark. What drew my attention was the grouping of the 3 skyscrapers. They looked as though they had been stacked as one would with legos.

The original image captured details are below:

ModelCanon EOS 5D Mark III
Focal Length100 mm
ISO Speed100
