#PhotoFriday

Yes you guessed it, I was on my holidays again!! But don’t worry this trip has filled the ReClick Photo pool so much that there will be enough material to keep #PhotoFriday going for the next couple of years! As I have mention before I always shoot images in Raw Format so every image is processed individually so all these new images, combined with all the other images I have taken this year has created a vast ReClick Photo stockpile! In order to give you a tiny preview of my latest images (the rest of them you will see in the coming months) I am going to share an extremely special image of mine which captures a moment I have been waiting for all my life. Today’s #PhotoFriday image is of the Secession Building, Vienna, Austria.

The Secession Building, Vienna.

Ever since I new what art truly was, I have known about the Secession and those who created and inhabited it. All throughout my secondary school education and then later on to art school, I learned all about the great secessionists such as the Great Gustav Klimt, Josef Hoffmann, Otto Wagner, Egon Shiele, Joseph Olbrich, Koloman Moser etc. Through time these great artists became my own personal creative heroes.

On Friday the 1st of June 2016, I finally had to chance to stand on the steps of the great Secession Building which is situated near Karlsplatz, Vienna. Looking up I was so overwhelmed by what I saw. For at least the past two decades I looked at various images of this building but to be there, to take it all in, to touch its wall with my hands was a dream come true.

Above the magnificent entrance in bright gilded lettering is the phrase which is synonymous with the secession movement “Der Ziet ihre Kunst. Der Kunst ihre Frieheit,” which translates to “To every age its art. To every art its freedom.”

These great artists believed that there should be no barrier between art forms. Their belief was in the gesamtkunstwerk or the total work of art. This means an art work encompassing all types of art forms. A great example of this is the Palais Stoclet in Brussels where every thing was designed and created to form a total work of art. From the architecture, to the paintings inside, right down to the egg cups and teaspoons.

This image, along with the others I took that day are a great reminder of the day my dream came true, and I hope you enjoy looking at the image just as much as I enjoyed taking it.

Hope you enjoy the rest of your #PhotoFriday!

Happy #PhotoFriday everyone! this weeks offering is something a little different. whilst walking down a little country lane in Belgium a couple of months ago a happened to take a look at a little small holding. As I paused to have a closer look, one of the sheep took notice of the stranger standing with his camera and wanted a closer look. It was really quite funny!

It’s that time of week again, Happy #PhotoFriday everyone! Today’s offering is an image of an abstract sculpture designed by Thomas Heatherwick installed at Paternoster Square.

The Paternoster Vents by Thomas Heatherwick.

This sculpture has a dual purpose, as well as providing a striking piece of modern sculpture for us to admire, it also serves as Ventilation for an underground electrical substation below!

If you think the name Thomas Heatherwick sound familiar, he was responsible for designing the quite outstanding Olympic Cauldron for the Olympic games held in London in 2012. I strongly recommend that you take a look at his other works, he is truly a design superstar!
