I am a huge fan of anything Victorian, the clothes, furniture and in particular the buildings. I could spend all day taking images of the beautiful ironwork, masonry, arches, windows, doors, you name it. I marvel at the skill and craftsmanship and love the feeling I get when I visit such places, they feel so right (I often think I must have lived another life!). Why am I saying all this when I'm showing a picture of the LLoyds Building? Because I make myself try and understand the same passion and creativity that goes into these kind of structures. I detest them, but try so hard to find the beauty in them through my camera that I cant feel in real life.
I still wonder if these buildings will stand the test of time that some of the Victorian ones that they threaten to consume have. I doubt it!

An excellent capture and terrific narrative that explains your passion well! Despite your hatred of these modern structures your image shows clearly the distinctive "beauty" of this modern architecture. The composition and level of details is superb, and I think you have achieved your aim. Very nicely done!

With mention of the history of buildings did you know this one has recently become listed (grin)...and no I'm not joking.

Great picture.

I too find it difficult to get to grips with inside-out architecture; though I know the Pompidou Centre in Paris much better than the Lloyds building and enjoy the view across the roofs from the external escalators (almost external: they are enclosed in a perspex tube).
Excellent use of the pov. Your b&w treatment has an excellent range of tones, the sheen of the semi-polished surfaces balancing the morosely looming building to some extent. Good photography.
Regards
Bill
