An Office Block View

An Office Block View


From the confines of a grey office block in Plymouth the workers gaze out of their window trying to find something to break the monotony of their day. Where does their gaze fall? Upon these Silver Birch trees offering them natural light bouncing from their silvered trunks and shimmering amongst their green leaves, a refreshment for the computer tired eyes. For the outsider looking in however, these Silver Birch trees, so similar in tone to the building itself and the windows that are in it, begin to blend in, the linear pattern of the trunks against the window frames and the green tones reflected back from the windows. A gentle upward wavering camera movement helps to show the where the inner city nature meets the architecture and it softens, becoming one.
