Jardine House – Hong Kong

I love this building. Seriously.

I can’t stop photographing it.

I know how the light hits at different times of day and how the different seasons reflect.

When I pass the building on a day of bad weather I feel let down.

And some days I pass it when I have a loaded camera in my bag and just happen to be there at one of those perfect moments.

Today was one of those days, where I had an Elite Chrome 100 (running at 50) in the R2A and the 40/1.4 Nokton.

Not perfect for architectural photographs perhaps but there was something about the brightness of the sky and the building reflecting as it always does that made me stop and spend a few minutes taking some time with the building.

I know that the people who work inside look at me disdainfully as they don’t perhaps see what I see.

The exceptional symmetry of the windows, the brutalist attitude of the four faces and the maritime outlook over the harbour will make me come back time and time again.
