On a cold evening this week, just before sundown, I was passing the above iconic view of the architecture, new and old, along the Thames and so Patti’s Lens Artist Challenge: Cityscapes makes for an appropriate post.
London is my city – but what do we mean by the term: ‘Cityscape’? As equivalent to landscape it can be inferred as the wide open view.
But these panoramas we tend to only see from the river Thames, from east to west
And besides a Cityscape is much more than skylines. Rather: ” Within the context of art, Cityscapes reflect various aspects… including buildings, urban parks, city skylines, and city streets. ” Art History
And so over the next couple of weeks or so I shall be photographing London from all these angles, from the perspective of one who is leaving it for good. In short I am ‘Scaping the city’.
And I hope to be going off into the sunset – euphemistically speaking
