The Catalyst

By mrswoolybill
We are looking in the opposite direction to last Friday's upload. This is the Catalyst, in Newcastle University's Helix development on the old Scottish & Newcastle Brewery site.
We came across the rather splendid fašade while conducting a reconnaissance for our U3A Photography group - it seemed a suitable location. So you will be seeing more.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

A remarkably complex image for what is basically a simple shot...the longer you look - the more you see.

A great starter image in what sounds like a great series to follow.

Thanks for sharing Moira.

The hexagon frame seems to draw you through.

Quote:The hexagon frame seems to draw you through.

Thanks Dave, that's intentional. It was an 'eyeing up the possibilities' shot, I intended to take more but then we got into conversation (more on that tomorrow). So this involved a certain amount of fine tuning for the geometry...

Looks damn cold. He may be quietly reviewing his options.

Fantastic composition Moira, beautifully framed.
Can't help but be drawn to what looks like two eyes watching.

A very well framed image, Moira, I like the two 'eyes' looking down on the figure! 😁👍🏻

He doesn't want to be recognised, but those two eyes, high up, see everything...

Love this and like Tony has said, there are two eyes watching.

Most award worthy but I'll be re-stocked tomorrow!
