Day in, day out

People walk across the millennium bridge everyday to work, just thinking that it’s been so much easier since the bridge has been built. Never thinking about how it was built or who slaved over hours designing it.

Architecture is possibly a form of forgotten art. People appreciate the old, but the new is sometimes forgotten. That being said, the art of architecture has been lost somewhat, with houses all looking the same and no thought or effort being made to make people stop and look like there once was.

Art comes in many thoughts and sometimes you can forget so many of them.

Art is in the heart, the eye and the mind of the beholder. Not in the critique of the masses

Falling apart, wall art

While walking between the Tate modern and London bridge, I came across this old piece of art in the wall. Still the this day I can’t work out whether it’s supposed to look like that for a ‘vintage’ effect or if just over time the paint has fallen away.

It’s interesting that only one half of the circle has parts missing and in some ways I prefer that side. It gives a bit of light and shade to what used to be an all white painting, another dimension if you will.

Not all art can, or should be perfect and the imperfections are what make it so eye catching.

Nothing in life is perfect

All strung up, America?

This is another great price of art from the Tate Modern.

I personally have never been interested in 17th century paintings of people who are long gone, they don’t say anything about society now, whereas modern art have been influenced by the modern society and the surrounding that I am in too.

It’s interesting to see how people interpret things differently in ways I have never thought of.

With art it’s up to you what you take away from it.

Modern society, modern art

People say that modern art, or even photography has no ‘skill’ or talent in it, but they would never be able to even dream about the concepts modern artists come up with.

I feel I don’t spend enough time at the Tate modern, but every time I go, it inspires me all over again to look at my surroundings in a different way, everything isn’t just a yes or no thing and things can mean one thing to another person and something else to everyone else.

London is full of strange and wacky places, but sometimes it’s best to bring it all back to where it starts and get inspired all over again

Start up

So I have been starting blogs and not going anywhere with them for a while, but with the summer coming up I am hoping there will be a lot of opportunities to find things that interest me and bring a new beginning when it comes to my photography.

I stopped taking photos for a while after I finished my a-levels and started university, and yes I regret taking a step back.

I hope that along with the photos I take, and my thoughts as to why I took them and what they mean to me will interest you guys.

Now I live in London, and have done since September, I feel I should take advantage of this as there are so many opportunities to explore my surroundings and I plan to take advantage of these a lot more now.

I’d just like to welcome you all and hope that you enjoy what is to come.

The first photo I am going to share with you is from a recent trip to the Tate modern, and looking over to Central London over the millennium bridge.

All the best
