Location: 22 Bishopsgate, London

22 Bishopsgate is one of the newest and tallest skyscrapers in the City. It's a curious building, which manages to be both interesting and utterly bland at the same time.

Trying to photograph the whole building is tricky. The bluey-grey glass blends into and reflects the sky, meaning there is minimal contrast between the two, particularly in black and white.

The trick with this one is to get out a long lens, find the right detail and cut the sky from the composition completely. This image is everything that I love in architectural photography - strong lines, nice contrast, symmetry and - above all - simplicity.

Gear: Nikon D810 and Nikkor 70-300 f/4.5-5.6
