RE­SEARCH­ING LO­CA­TIONS ON THE in­ter­net can save a lot of time and Richard Walker (face­book.com/rich­w­pho­tos) takes to Flickr when he’s look­ing for ab­stract ar­chi­tec­tural in­spi­ra­tion.

“Beck­ford’s Tower in Bath was de­signed by Henry Ed­mund Goodridge in 1825 and com­pleted in 1827. I came across it while re­search­ing spi­ral stair­cases on Flickr and I added it to my list of stair­cases to pho­to­graph. It’s quite tricky to shoot – it’s tight get­ting up the stair­case, and with other vis­i­tors it can take a while to get a good shot.”

“The smaller shot was taken at the cit­i­zenM ho­tel in South­wark. It’s a bit tricky to shoot from this an­gle as there isn’t a lot of room and us­ing a full-size tri­pod isn’t an op­tion. I set my cam­era up on my Go­ril­la­pod, and luck­ily the Canon has a vari-an­gle LCD screen so I didn’t have to break my back try­ing to get the com­po­si­tion.”
