G'day Torgny

Another excellent series - well done
I presume that these were taken around sunrise as the colour / brightness of the light is altering slightly between images ... if so, congrats for getting up so early!!

I am also appreciating your verticals being vertical ~ again I presume that either in the camera stage, or as pp, you have ensured that all verticals remain vertical even tho the camera is pointing upwards in some cases

Overall, a well taken & well presented series. Thank you for sharing
Regards, Phil

The Barbarian,

Oh, yes, they came in three waves.

"Göteborg låg nära Skottland. Det var ofta lättare att segla till Göteborg från till exempel Aberdeen än att ta sig till London vid den här tiden"

It was often easier to sail to Gothenburg than to London. Some names

Keiller
Gibson
Dickson
Hall
Carnegie
Chalmers

They saw potentials especially in and around Gothenburg, water power being the essential factor

Most of the pictures of the old brick factory buildings I have posted in this section of the forum are from these Scottish enterprises

The pictures are optimized for slideshows. The slideshow button is at the upper right. Please use your loudspeakers. There is some music, progressive music from the seventies in the different galleries.

Photograph #6 really struck a chord with me for some reason. Perhaps the lighting, the colour or the mystery of what might be through those arches and around the other side.

Yes, it's a good thing that older buildings are preserved; often respectfully renovated and maintained. I can understand the fascination for arches. A simple line by Thomas Tranströmer, a countryman and 2011 Nobelprice laureate in Literature.

"Arches behind arches behind arches"

and he could have continued with an infinite recursion (you say?)

You may excuse my English. It seems never to suffice

Regards

Yes, VV, you guessed right. Dusk. On the other hand it's only about 5 hours of sun up here this time of the year. Thank you for viewing and commenting. Much appreciated

And G'day to you, Phil,

Yes, I'm struggling with angles. Don't know how others do but I study the scene and try to remember perspective, degree of convergence etcetera. I manage sometimes, I hope, to correct in Ps, when needed

I think it does a lot for the experience of the physics, (the feeling of presence of the buildings) not to have too much distorsion or falling backwards - the buildings I mean

Regards, Torgny
