Partial perspectives

How we look and what we see is affected by all manner of things. In normal circumstances the interest of an image of a framed fragment of sky might lie in the detail of the ragged edge of the encircling mass and the apparent fragility of the stonework at the apex of the aperture. As we all accustom ourselves to life behind closed doors, however, there is a particular charge in these photographs of partial perspectives and heightened emotion in the possibility of unhindered panoramas.
