I’ve been casting about for subjects whilst the weather is dominated by leaden sky, and took a few shots of the utterly familiar Swiss Cottage Library. I’ve been going there for as long as I can remember, but had to be told about the architects concept. Basil Spence fashioned it as the pages of an open book. You can’t see it well, for street furniture, trees, and other buildings, but I did find one vantage point with a wide angle lens and dodging the traffic.
At the same time I found a use for the multiple exposure feature I mentioned in a recent post – the Hampstead Figure by FE McWilliam from 1964 having an extra layer of fractured cubism layered on it. I will try to do it better next time.
