In my travels, I enjoy walking around cities. I do this for a few reasons. First, I love to do street photography. This is a chance to shoot people and the environment to show spontaneous and candid life. The other is looking at the architecture and trying to find abstracts in unique and beautiful buildings.
In this series of buildings, I found so much it was crazy. This is the opera house in Iceland. Known as Harpa it is an amazing building both inside and outside. If you ever get to Iceland make sure you spend some time photographing this building. Iceland is one of the most photo-rich lands you can visit. It’s pretty easy to get a good photo there.

I am always looking for the picture in the picture. This is a photo of an old beached boat on a beach in Svalbard. What I like to od is shoot the picture of the larger subject (the boat) itself then go in close and start to look for new compositions. Sometimes I use a long lens like the 100-400nn lens. In this shot, I saw the bow of the ship as it’s own abstract photo. I moved back a bit and zoomed in with the telephoto lens to compress the image a bit. Then I shot it. At first, if you see the images you might not know what it is. This forces the viewer to stop for a minute to figure it out. Some people may not even figure it out. I like this subject as it has a lot of things I like, such as rust and peeling paint. Enjoy.
I love cities for a lot of reasons, especially for all they offer a photographer in subjects that can be photographed. I take walks on the streets early in the morning and shoot people, buildings, light and shadow and even elements like door knobs. I usually work with long lenses. These were taken with a Fuji XT2 and a 100-400 zoom.
