2014 wasn’t my best year photographically speaking. I didn’t shoot much, and hadn’t it been for two assignments I would have ended up with almost no photos at all. What I did a lot though was travelling, almost exclusively for work. So my hotel series grew quite massively. Here’s a new selection, edited down aggressively. Again – it’s not about aesthetics, just about how those rooms made me feel. Mostly work stays, mostly alone, luckily not all the time though! A bit of holidays made it in as well.
These are the last pictures from my week in the UK plus a few from Vienna. Just imagine the ones of the “The Passing of Time” entry mixed into these, as I also took them during the same time frame.
Starting off in Vienna.
Hiding behind a book.
In the morning on my way to work.
Beautiful light patterns – sunlight reflected by windows.
I thought she was carrying a picture, but after I took the frame I went in front of her and saw that the other side of the canvas was empty as well…
Don’t know what she was carrying around there…
Smoking area at Gatwick Airport – made me laugh!
Bournemouth, Dorset. That day was pretty cold and windy, but I just had to go to the beach. Don’t know what it is about the sea, but listening to its sound and watching the waves just frees my mind and helps me to relax.
These two were so funny, they wanted to take pictures with the deckchair, but it was so windy that it was quite a struggle to get it set up, and as I got nearer I also took two pictures of them. They almost fell over from laughing while finally taking the pictures.
The pier, Bournemouth.
This is what my hairstyle looked like after coming home from the beach – you can tell it was windy out there!
Next day was warm and sunny. A surfer walking by.
Water & sand.
Again the pier.
Hotel corridor in London.
Trying to find his way around London.
This one’s for my sister, I guess she will know why! 😉
Empty papercups at Starbucks.
Oxford Street, Saturday around 5pm. It was pure madness, and even though I pretty much managed to avoid this street (I always try to, it’s just too much for me), I needed to go through about 100m of Oxford Street, and it took me ages to get through and away.
The Strand around 8am, still deserted, quite a contrast to Oxford Street the afternoon before.
Couldn’t resist taking this one.
