Top 10 Images From 2012

December 20, 2012 — 15 Comments

London architecture dominates this top 10 for 2012. I travel a good deal, enormously enjoying the local landscapes and architecture, however London remains my top photographic location. The reason for this could well be down to familiarity, but London alone can fuel a photographer for a life time of great images.

Personally 2012 has seen me move camera system to Leica, more significantly, a principal move toward street photography and the world of black and white.

10. Tate Modern

Not an outstanding image in itself, its significance lies in the move from pure architecture to images oriented toward people and their environments.

Honourable Mention

A composition should be indifferent to the camera used for the capture. Camera phones are getting so much more capable, so I was pleased to trial Nokia’s 808 Pureview this summer. Honourable mention goes to this shot of Leigh on Sea, in Essex.

    A very strong set of images – very graphic. I’m a fan of Escher, so I especially like #2.

    Just coming over from Jim’s list and slowly working my way through :) Some wonderful Architectural images Michael. I came across Escher in a tutorial you had written (can’t remember where now) and was stunned. Wonderful work.

    Great architectural series Michael. Lines, tones and perspectives are outstanding. Very inspirational for another architectural shooter.
