So here's something of a change. The City is Bilbao; all the photographs are of or from Frank Gehry's monumental Guggenheim museum, and all made in a three day period in October 2018. This wasn't the first time I'd photographed this building, and neither is it the only Gehry-designed building I've been pleased to spend time on and in. In 2003 a commission I was working on resulted in my booking three days at a nearby hotel with the intention of photographing just that one Bilbao building. And I did that - well sort of, because on the first morning I tripped and damaged a knee quite badly. Result was that I spent most of those three days on my bed with the contents of the minibar stacked around my knee. I was able to hobble down to the Guggenheim twice each day for an hour and managed a few decent photographs.
So this has been unfinished business for fifteen years, and I'm pleased to say that this time I had no mishaps either to me or my cameras, and no real weather issues either. I had imagined that I'd want to photograph other things in Bilbao too, but though I found the city pleasant I saw no other subject that appealed, so we walked, ate tapas and photographed this building. Inevitably most of the photo's are details and indeed I've never seen a building with such a range of angles and scales to work from, and three days passed quite quickly.
I enjoyed also, and am pleased to include here, some photographs of Jeff Koons' metallic tulips, impressively on display at the river side of the building.
