The Cube Houses, Rotterdam, Netherlands (Image Reference: 20191017A-G3503)

While visiting Rotterdam on the MV Columbus, I got the chance to see the famous cube houses of Rotterdam.

These amazing structures are real homes and were built in the 1980s. Each house is a perfect cube, but not one of the six sides of any of the cubes is actually vertical. In fact, all the walls are at 45 degrees! To photograph them I wanted to find an angle that was made the houses look abstract. So I positioned myself in the middle of a cluster of them and selecting a wide-angle a photographed vertically upwards. Although this technique doesn’t really show the strange angles that the buildings are at, it does give me a good abstract image. Which is what I was aiming for.

Settings: 1/160s, f/8, ISO 100. Lens: EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM @24 mm.
