Photographer's Note

This was taken during a wander through the capital on a bright and cold winters day. Whilst walking away from the Tate I noticed that the sun was perfectly alligned withe it's defunct smoke stack (if I leaned over the edge of the bridge to a scary degree). Looking at the scene I knew this would be perfect for Infrared so I took some shots.

What I liked about this scene in particular was that it it reflects that large weather instalation inside, and I was also struck by the phallic chimney. It was this notion that really made the sun appear to me as if it were being ejaculated from it.

Very little PS work. Just levels and sharpening.


This is from the discussion with kaychambers, and it is something that I should have put here in the first place so here goes:

"Ah, I see now what you mean about the crop. I left that in on purpose [the irregular top corners] as it is the natural product of my scanner. I feel it shows that I carefully composed the shot in camera and had no need to crop the finished picture, in the same way that some traditional prints are made with the irregular black borders, to show that the whole frame is being used. I saw this as the closest digital equivalent, and increased the canvas size around the picture to frame it and emphasize this aspect."
