Chromatic Landscape – The lair of Goldfinger

There is a reservoir near me with one of the most bizarre examples of 1970’s industrial, water bound architecture I think I’ve ever seen.

Every time I walk past I imagine the Bond villan, Goldfinger, might be hiding out in it. The other day the water was so still and calm and the winter light reflecting the delicate chromatic  landscape so exactly  that it seemed to transcend its Sussex location. A cool, pale, crystal blue-white sky, lavender grey, hazy trees in the distance all enveloping a khaki green concrete cylinder.

Surreal indeed.

    The two of them are like a cartoonish duo, with one being short and squat and the other being tall and slender. I bet the short one is the brains of the operation.

    Hey Ptol – Are you taking all the photos on your blog? If yes, great job! You’ve turned into a photographer along the way as well!
