Photographs are big. Now that may sound like an extremely obvious thing to point out, but it’s well worth being reminded of the fact that not everything old has been eclipsed by technology and development, rather, that they have been elevated alongside it. A picture’s worth a thousand words? Post it with your Facebook status. Photography has become more prominent in the digital age, with many sites promoting self-expression on the internet via photographs. Bar the negative internet stereotype of such sites, they really do promote photography, and the pursuit of seeking that perfect shot that shows what you feel.
Of course, one has to admit, technology has given us more creative ways to make a profit, and this canvas print UK is a good example. Not just of how technology has helped people expressing themselves make a profit out of their passion, but of how traditional and technological can merge into a thing of beauty. If you pay attention to the canvas print, it’s the London skyline, with a bridge a little bit to the left side of the image. Dotted across the image are skyscrapers, but placed neatly alongside them are the more traditional towers of the older London architecture. This shows a harmonious duality of the city; of how the old and new can work together. Look up aerial views of the Parliament houses and you’ll see modern architecture alongside it and in the background.
Now, I mentioned how technology has helped people pursuing their passion procure a profit. For those curious, this canvas print UK is size-based on cost. There are several measurements, with the smallest, 8″ by 10″ costing about £ 60, or approximately $ 73. Custom measurements will set you back by around £ 400 or close to $ 500. That’s a lot of cash to fork over for a photo printout. I’m sure that the photographer and the company that printed this canvas print is happy about that pricing.
It shows that photography is a booming business, and that being a creative individual at heart has profitable applications all over the world. Of course, since a canvas print UK of a double negative image of an anime character costing for $50, there’s definitely a market for creative products.
