I was browsing through my Flickr photos the other day, wondering why some photos get favourited and receive complementary comments, but not necessarily the ones I am most proud of.
I was surprised, therefore, to receive an email today from Bentley Institute Press, a publishing house for the American architecture, engineering and construction industry. They asked for my permission to use this photo of Durham Cathedral in a forthcoming book on architectural geometry.
Now I can barely spell “architectural geometry”, let alone understand the concept. That said, I do appreciate dramatic architecture, and my building shots are among some of my better ones. In my view, anyway.
And I know the photo would have been selected for purely technical or geometric reasons, but for what it’s worth I don’t even reckon it’s my best shot of the cathedral, and would instead refer you here, here or here.
So anyway. Potentially my first published photo. I don’t think I can give up the day job just yet, but it’s still nice to think I may soon be able to describe myself as an internationally published photographer.
