I must have looked a bit strange, standing on top of a wheelie bin up against the wall, juggling tripod and camera in the drizzle, just so I could get the angle I wanted. I was trying to avoid converging verticals which is what happens when you tilt the camera up to shoot something high. To make sure the verticals (the edges of the building in this case) stay vertical you need to get the camera high enough so you’re shooting straight ahead and not tilting it up. Hence the wheelie bin. It was my second or third attempt at this shot after not being happy with the previous results. This time I waited for a wet Friday night because I wanted the reflections off the street and the lights on in the hairdresser’s windows downstairs. It’s a great painting by a great artist and I’m happy with the way the shot turned out, especially the contrast of warm and cold colours. Sadly, after a number of years now, it doesn't look anywhere near as good anymore.

Note: Both paper and canvas prints come rolled in acid free tissue paper inside a heavy-duty mailing tube (signature is required upon delivery).
The standard sized paper prints - A2, A1 and AO - are designed to fit off-the-shelf frame sizes but for custom framing (like the panorama prints which aren't standard sizes), I'd recommend taking them to a professional framer.
The canvas prints are much harder to do yourself so should also be taken to a framer. All the canvas prints have a mirror wrap edge (sometimes called gallery wrap) which means the image appears to continue around the side of the frame but it's actually a copy of the image, as if the image were held against a mirror. This way none of the image is 'lost' around the side, it just looks that way.
If you have any questions about the prints, the images or anything else, I'm always available through the contacts page.
