'Fire in the Sky'

Its not often I manipulate my images, I like to keep it real, creativity starts the moment you look through the viewfinder, hand, eye, heart. However I sometimes like to play about in photoshop, the above image I put together from two other images, the background/sky is a sunrise I took last Summer from my bedroom window. The building in the foreground is from another image I took of an old derelict building on the river Hull, Bankside, U.K. I simply selected the building, copy and pasted it onto the other, and cropped it where needed. Simple, but I quite like the result.

Town & Country

Im working on a new Exhibition, which I hope to get in some good venues/gallerys. Because I enjoy street/urban photography aswell as traditional landscapes, I decided to combine the two, titled 'Town & Country' I have included a good mixture, both b/w and colour images, often I can never decide which I prefer, but I like both. I dont like to over contextualize my work, rather I prefer to allow the viewers own interpretation. Also I believe any piece of art should be able to stand alone on its own merits without having to read endless blurb in order to "get it".
