I'm trying to pull back and take photographs of broader scenes, as in the mill shot and the cityscape. In both examples, the negative shape of the sky is just as important to me as the buildings. I like how one half of the cityscape is dominated by the strong verticals of the columns, water tower and obelisk – while the other half is humble and workaday. Despite their emptiness, I find many of the small towns I visit to be strangely appealing.
