Selfridges in Sepia

ND – Early, Dull, Chilly, Blue

I’ve covered the iconic…
Selfridges building designed by the sadly departed Future Systems in Birmingham’s Bullring Shopping Centre before, here and here.

Every time I go back there I find a new angle or lighting situation, I try a different lens or filter, or I think of something different to do with the shots during post processing.

Whilst reviewing some images I had previously unused I decided to process them a little differently (for me) in Apple’s Aperture 2. This is what I arrived at. Do you like them?

About nakedigit

I have legs and a camera. I also occasionally use a passport. The camera with my brightest lenses can almost (almost) see in the dark. So the only thing stopping me from putting it all together regardless of where and when i am is, well, me really! However, when i don't completely muck it up the results may end up here on this blog and also my Flickr page. I now Twitter and a website is coming... ND August 2010

    Incredible shots. I’m so impressed, especially with the first one. A fine new way to see a building!

      Thank you very much Chris, much appreciated.
      I’m generally trying to stay clear of Selfridges now as I’ve posted a few different shots of it on Flickr/Blog already, and this one had been sitting on the back burner for a while now before I put it up. It’s a very interesting building and seems to have sparked an interest here in Birmingham to build things which are clad with strange monist repeating patterns. We’ve just recently seen The Cube completed as well – which is now being nicknamed Tetris Tower – and the new central library is currently under construction and due to dazzle us in 2013.
      I wonder how they’ll age and be viewed in 50 years time?
      ND 🙂
