Recently I was invited by @Nissan to go on a small adventure and check out their new Nissan Juke. The new athletic feel and sound was a joy to experience and I can’t wait to take it for a spin. @nissaneurope #newnissanjuke #juke #nissan #nuevonissanJUKE #NuevoJUKE #ElcrossoverCoupe @nissan

Tile-Land I’m a sucker for puns, so I gotta admit I was pretty happy with this one 😃 This is a composite shot of the countless wonderfully tiled facades you can see in Porto from the other side of the river. Having crossed the bridge you get an amazing look at the hundreds of buildings facing the water, and the colorful pallet of the city can be seen all at once. A true Tile-Land. Can you spot the one person in the picture?

Found Waldo’s Home 😊 – #whereswaldo Another addition to my endless collection of facades around Barcelona. I love the details, the cool green windows at the top, and I was lucky to see someone with the perfect outfit entering the building. Next time you can’t find Waldo in a book, you can go find them at their home.

Pink House – Rarely does a building give off such a strong Wes Anderson vibe as this one. The way the curves and shapes play with the light to create wonderful shadows that move across the façade throughout the day is enchanting.

I want to thank the great people at @nissaneurope for a fun day of James Bond adventure during the unveiling of the #NewNissanJuke It was tons of fun and I was glad to have been picked solely on the merits of my photography. I’m obviously not a model so for my picture, rather than a close up or me posing, I chose one using only my silhouette as I’ve done in the past. Thanks again to @nissan for a lovely day. #nuevonissanjuke #nissan #nuevojuke #elcrossovercoupe #sponsored

I always find myself returning to the bottomless architectural well that is Ricardo Bofill’s Walden 7. Each visit is a new opportunity to explore new angles, wider vistas, different lines. At each time of day the colors change with the light and you can start shooting again.

“The only geniuses produced by the chaos of society are those who do something about it. Chaos breeds geniuses. It offers a man something to be a genius about.” ― B.F. Skinner, Walden Two No matter how many times I return to Ricardo Bofill’s Walden 7 I can’t get enough of it. I’m constantly fascinated just walking through the halls and spaces, down corridors and seeing the light affect its colors differently every time I go. It’s usually quiet, empty, yet simultaneously full of life. Without a doubt my favorite building in Barcelona. (Ok just outside of Barcelona 😉 )

Through the Rabbit Hole - Continuing my ‘Enter the Rainbow’ series of shots taken from the front of a train crossing Tokyo’s famous Rainbow Bridge and letting the shutter lag a few seconds to achieve these very cool and abstract shots. In this one I like that the top of the bridge, due to being more distant, is still pretty visible creating a nice contrast between the two sides of the image.

Summer Diagonal in Color 🌇 – In this aerial shot you can see Avenida Diagonal going all the way down to the sea, passing through the Sagrada Familia and Torre Agbar. Taken in collaboration with @cathelicopters 🚁

Timewave Zero - People really seemed to like my previous shot of the Rainbow Bridge so I thought I’d post some of the others taken there. What I like about them is how different they all look and how quickly things go from mundane to abstract when you leave the shutter open just a second more. It makes for quite a cool little series so maybe I’ll post them every other time or something, haven’t decided yet.

The Grand Barcelona Hospital - Funded by banker Pau Gil and designed by famed Modernist architect Lluis Domenech i Montaner in 1902, the construction of the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau took almost 30 years to complete. It shows the use of intricate patterns and mosaics inspired by Arabic architecture, whilst maintaining the curves and lines of the Art Nouveau style current at the time. Domenech i Montaner embraced open spaces and symmetry, unlike his famous student, architect Antoni Gaudi. Today the former hospital stands as one of the city’s most famed works of architecture, and together with his Palau de la Musica as two of his works designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Queen’s Gambit – From this perspective Barcelona becomes an endless chess board with the Queen looking for her next move. The rows and columns extending into the horizon, a diagonal line cutting through the board perhaps left behind by a passing bishop. 😊 Photos taken in collaboration with @cathelicopters

Any good ideas for a caption? I really like this image, but I can’t figure out what to call it. It evokes notions of being in a vessel at sea, of traversing the skies, of reflecting on man made structures and how they relate to nature... But I can’t seem to nail it down. Any thoughts would be appreciated. I could send a postcard of this shot to the person who comes up with a great one if they like.

Modernist Standoff - Everybody who knows Barcelona know the name Gaudi and his famous Sagrada Familia. However far fewer people know the name Lluís Domènech i Montaner. He was not only Gaudi’s teacher, but an architect in his own right, and an important figure in the Modernisme movement with buildings such as the famous Palau de la Musica and the building you can see above, the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau. What I always enjoyed about this place is that if you stand at the gates, breaking the grid-like nature of Eixample is a rare diagonal street cutting through the blocks, the aptly named Avenida Gaudi, which leads straight from the Hospital Sant Pau to the Sagrada Familia. In a way these two buildings facing each other this way reminds me of a proud student showing off his work to his teacher over the course of a century. What do you think? How does Sant Pau compare to Sagrada Familia? Big thanks to @cathelicopters

Hong Kong Dreams This rare view of Hong Kong taken from the roof of the Hong Kong Cultural Centre was surprising and awesome to experience . And old fashioned, somewhat Brutalist construction splits in the middle and gives way to the gigantic beast that is the modern Hong Kong skyline. Big thanks to the Hong Kong Cultural Centre for the access and their kind assistance

In Working Color While walking around Soho house I was very happy to have stumbled upon this moment. Something about the greyish blueish tones of the man’s suit matching the columns, while the extraordinarily colorful background seems to go unnoticed. The routine office phonecall highlighted by a rainbow of doors, like being caught inside a surreal game-show. Also it was nice to find a less explored angle in a very famous and over-photographed location.

“Looking up at the endless tiers of balconies, he felt uneasily like a visitor to a malevolent zoo where terraces of vertically mounted cages contained creatures of random and ferocious cruelty.” ― J.G. Ballard, High-Rise

Present Shock: When Everything Happens Now. - This moment seemed to capture some of the sensory over-stimulation I experienced in Tokyo, where the lights, the sounds, the movements, the people, everything moves at an incredible pace making it hard to stay centered and focused. The only person in this picture who seems to be still, almost serene, is checking their phone.

Stuck in the Middle with You ‘Sonder’ is the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own. This sensation is a huge part of why I spend so much time obsessively scouting out and photographing facades. If eyes are the windows to the soul, then windows are the eyes of the world. Expect a lot more facades coming from my recent trips to Hong Kong and Tokyo. 😊

The Limited Center While walking in the blazing heat of the midday sun I was very happy to stumble upon this building hiding amongst dozens of grey or mirrored counterparts. The playful combination of pink and turquois made me think of it as a pried open magical fruit with a pastel yellow center. There are countless facades worth exploring in Hong Kong and it’s one of my favorite ways to experience the city, walking around looking up at these colorful giants.

Get-away Gate-way . . . . . Somewhere amongst the trees adjacent to the Nezu Shrine is a staircase lined with the famous red torii Shinto shrine gates usually found in Kyoto. This literal gateway leads one to the transition out of the shrine and back into the modern world.

Mind the Gap In many trains in Tokyo you can face the front and look out the window, allowing for some futuristic shots. This shot of the iconic Rainbow Bridge looks like something out of 2001 Space Oddyssey – all you need is a slow shutter and a steady hand.
