A Sense of Scale
The British museum features some amazing architecture, what impresses me most is the sense of scale and openness; the sense of wonder.
That it manages to do so without making the visitor feel subservient to the building, but enthralled is all the more impressive.
“Man knows that the world is not made on a human scale; and he wishes that it were.” Andre Malraux
What a wonderful shot!
Wonderful bw Martina.
The curved lines and b&w tones are wonderful in these photos of the British museum. You’ve captured and skillfully conveyed that large scale by incorporating visitors in the first and third photos. In the second photo it’s delightfully all about geometry.
I’ve always been impressed with your vision and skills as a photographer but I’m liking what I’m seeing of this Fuji X100 as well.
Excellent interior photographs of this famous place. Love the glass roof and its metal scaffold. The b&w conversion works very well with these images.
The geometry has a nice sense of balance and calm.
I love how you’ve caught the contrast between the human figures and the vastness of space. This is a beautiful series, Martina.
All the best to you for a great year!
The ultimate sense of wonder in an ultimate b&w frame with so many shades of grey. That’s amazing, Martina! And it’s damn hypnotizing!
All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.
great shot and it tells a wonderful story of scale,
I have been to British Museum and noticed the glass covered entrance – or hall. But you really captured the special feeling of the place. My favourite of the three are the second picture.
