Flatiron Building, New York City

Posted on Jan 20, 2013

The Flatiron Building is one of my favourite New York landmarks. Other people obviously feel the same way because photographing it without ending up with a shot that’s been done thousands of times before is distinctly tricky. Hopefully, though, I’ve managed to produce something a bit different here. Rather than using a wide angle lens and take the picture from right underneath the building, I walked a couple of blocks north and shot a section using a long telephoto lens. This allowed me to compress the perspective in the shot and create a dramatic, geometric composition. I hope you like it. It’s definitely one of my favourite shots from the last 10 years.
