Alone in the city {1000 words #5}


A picture is worth a 1000 words

Delving into my image archive to re-publish a series of images that encapsulate meaning and emotion

A near silhouette photograph of a couple set against the backdrop of the iconic London cityscape. This image was taken last year in Southbank on the bank of the river Thames in the height of summer (it was a bit blustery and rainy!) You’d be excused for thinking that this is a beautifully observed shot of a random couple cleverly captured as they pass by. However it is a staged (‘posed to look natural’-I prefer to say) image taken for one of my wedding clients. I love the feeling of calm you get with this image, regardless of the fact that the sky above is bustling with aeroplanes, the bridge is crammed with trains and the city is pulsating with cars, buses and people..but to me, it tells of a couple having a moment alone whilst patiently anticipating one of the biggest day of their lives.

This image is crying out to be printed BIG! This type of image is not too in-your-face or showy and could easily be classed as a piece of artwork rather than a photograph. I’d treat it as just that and print it on fine art photographic paper, finish it with a luxurious deep cut mount and frame it in a classic or distressed black frame. It would be best displayed as a centre piece above the fireplace or sofa in the lounge, above the bed or on a feature wall in the bedroom.

I am very happy to offer a personal home design consultation to discuss your frame options. I can advise you where best to hang your framed images and help you decide which frames complement your home’s interior. Following your Home design consultation, using the latest technology, I can give you a graphic design solution of how your frames will actually look on the walls of your own home. Please feel free to get in contact to discuss your ideas.
