“I Like to Look Beyond or Sideways….”

I am delighted this month to present the stunning and imaginative photography of Wendy Dobing, who sees the abstract patterns and colours of our every day urban towns and cities. It is this kaleidoscopic vision which drew me to Wendy’s world.

We see the architecture as so much more than just glass and brick. Wendy focuses upon the geometric shapes and repetition of the patterns which they form. She also cleverly frames the subjects from unusual angles which forces us to take more notice of what we are actually seeing.

These patterns and shapes are also emphasised by the way Wendy skilfully uses light and focuses upon colour.

So let’s start our walk down the high street and enjoy…..

In the Artists own words

“I am  freelance graphic designer and amateur photographer. I am motivated by the colour and form of our world, showing this through some of my  abstract, architectural and macro detail photography. I like to look beyond or sideways at everything so that I look before I see. ”

Abstract Cottonopolis

This post was inspired by my team, Manchester City winning the Capital Cup yesterday…..Well done chaps !!!

When we think of a city, we see buildings, people, shops, trains, buses etc. However there is another side to the urban environment, a more abstract vision.  I’ve taken the photograph’s posted here in and around the city of Manchester (UK).  See if you can recognise any of these places?
