Looking Up With Vertical Horizon

Here’s a reminder to look up occasionally!

I love these particular photo series of Hong Kong buildings from Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze – it’s such a simple concept, looking up instead of ahead, but he took these pix with such artistry you can’t help staring at them, the colours and shapes are amazing! Here are some of my favourite pix:

Love the colours!
Amazing asymmetrical shape
I like this one, but it also accentuates what I dislike about Hong Kong – the myriad of windows close together
This is pretty
And this is unexpected

I’ve taken a few upward looking shots myself, but I can’t say they look anything as pretty as his =)


I quite like this particular one I took in Munich – from the inner court of city hall
Another recent favourite – at the Dubai souk
