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!
