Paneful - 30 Saint Mary Axe. by 


Unprocessed photograph (cropped for symmetry) . The best of my shots, plenty of colour and strong forms.

I wanted to capture the special look and nature of the building without the “gherkin” look. The apparently simple structure is really complex, the repeated panes of glass are, in fact, rarely repeated, the squares are not square, the equilateral triangles not equilateral and the curves often series of straight lines.

Blessed with the body of an athlete and the sensitivity of an artist, John was destined for wonderful things…sadly the athlete’s body is that of a retired shot putter and the artist was a cave painter, who met a tragic death when his attempt to knock through a wall of his cave was met with not only failure, but also gravity. Still, his family was left with a wonderful lofty view of the sea.

Sometimes, John takes photographs and some of them appear here.
