Dalmore Beach, Isle of Lewis, Scotland.

It was a crisp, sun-drenched day when I found myself drawn to the rugged beauty of the Marin Headlands. Eager to explore the hidden nooks and crannies of this picturesque landscape, I set out in search of empty buildings to photograph.

As I wandered the outskirts of the Marin Headlands Center for the Arts, my curiosity led me to what seemed to be an abandoned structure bathed in sunlight. The allure of its weathered facade and mysterious interiors beckoned me closer, but I hesitated to venture inside.

Unwilling to disturb the quiet serenity of the surroundings or risk trespassing, I lingered outside, searching for a vantage point to capture the essence of the building. It was then, by sheer chance, that I stumbled upon my technique.

Peering through a nearby window, I noticed the captivating interplay of light and shadow dancing across the glass surface.  I raised my camera and captured the mesmerizing reflection that unfolded before me.

As I continued to explore the Marin Headlands, I embraced this voyeuristic approach, allowing myself to become immersed in the silent dialogue between light and architecture. Each photograph became a testament to the hidden beauty that lies within abandoned spaces, a testament to the power of serendipity and the art of observation.
