This is the document of a kind of addiction - or what would you call a photographic behavior that brings you back again and again to the same place - to photograph it again?

I have such a place in London. It's one building (you see it in #1 - the one in the middle between the first - London Bridge - and the second bridge from the right on the other side of the Thames river). The following series is the result of several visits (with a change of cameras from Sony NEX-3 to A57 to A99 and finally to A99M2).

I apologize for the repetitious character!

#1 The building



#2 Orange stripes



#3 All those hidden colors



#4 Reflection on the left and the right



#5 The yellow underside I



#6 Reflected clouds



#7 The yellow underside II



#8 Towers and balconies



#9 The yellow underside III



#10 Reflection



#11 Corners



#12 Reflection



#13 From blue to yellow



#14 Skywards


C&C always welcome! Thanks for viewing!

Don't mind your 'obsession' at all.
Wonderful images - very strong compositionally and in their design. Lots to like here, with my favourites ##2, 4, 6, 10 and 12.
Thanks for sharing.

Thoroughly enjoyable Harald and also fascinating with passage of time and technology that these images cover. I wonder how your "seeing" of this building has evolved over this time?
C & C always welcome

I think for most of us mortals, working a subject, especially returning to it several times, yields more interesting and, frequently, more detailed views of a subject.   I did a quick run through and then returned for a slower view and the same two images stood out to me: #'s 4 and 12. #3 - out of focus deliberately? A bit disconcerting. #8 - really like this one but I think I would like even more after a crop of a lot of the "dead" space on the left; the contrasting architectural styles and the near silhouette of the older structure work wonderfully. Great series.

Easy to understand the attraction of this building.
The yellow/blue colours and lines make it a good subject. It is a very nice set overall, hard to pick a single favourite, but ## 4, 6, 10, 11 and 12 are my competitors for the first place.
TFS Harald.
