Visited Osborne House today and spent the day on Queen Victoria’s Beach which has just opened. You get some amazing views of the house on the stroll towards the beach.
Well I’ve not managed to get out with the camera much this week so I’m scraping the barrel a bit with this one. It did make me chuckle though. Oh, and if you didn’t know, the building it St Paul’s … Continue reading
Thanks for all the comments on yesterday’s shot. This is the other side of the same building and now you can see how ugly it is. Hence why it’s being torn down. I found it quite interesting that right next … Continue reading
This is the County Hall Island Block in London and demolition work has just started to tear it to the ground. It’s been sitting empty gathering graffiti (and god knows what else) for the last twenty years and it’s going … Continue reading
This is the London College of Fashion building on Oxford Street. I just didn’t know what to do with regards to the processing on this shot so ended up adding some grain and trying an attempt at a seventies tone. … Continue reading
I was strolling between Piccadilly and Regent Street and I stumbled across this gaping void behind one of the buildings. It stopped me in my tracks, so thought it was worthy of a post.
I managed to find a good vantage point to get this shot of London. Then I used a fantastic Photoshop plugin to give me the fake-tilt-shift grainy-plastic-london look. Awesome. 😉
This is another shot from the archives. I’ve come down with something ‘not very nice’ so didn’t get out today at all and I’m unlikely to tomorrow. Unless of course I’m inspired whilst shuffling around the house and feeling sorry … Continue reading
This was taken on Friday night in London. It’s a crop of the full image which you can see here. Jenny Holzer will be projecting poetry for the Beckett Centenary Festival on buildings around London every night this week. If … Continue reading
This was taken in The Great Court at The British Museum and if you’ve never been you really should visit. It’s a stunning space. When the sun is shining at mid-afternoon the shadows cast all over the floor are very … Continue reading
Not really a great deal to say about this one, I shot as I was walking through Canary Wharf last week. The sky was blue, there were fluffy clouds, some impressive buildings and huge clocks. I’ve visited a few times … Continue reading
The weather has been dull and very cold – not great for photography so here’s one from the archives. Another HDR, although this time you can clearly see it is. Three exposures at -1, -0.5 and 0 from a single … Continue reading
I always seem to find that when I’m at a bit of a creative low with the photography, I just walk in a different direction and I stumble across gems like this. This shadow of The Ritz’s sign stopped me … Continue reading
Someone told me about this a few days ago, so I rushed down there today when the sun briefly broke through the rain clouds. I’m so glad I did, because this has to be seen to be believed. This is … Continue reading
Apologies for the late post today, I’ve been struggling to get out with the camera again. Here’s another reflection shot that really caught my eye. I can’t seem to see much else at the moment. The building you see reflected … Continue reading
I’m really not sure about this one. Having nothing else to post I thought I would try a photoshop exercise with an archived shot. I’m not sure if the selection I made around The Clock Tower, to darken the sky, … Continue reading
Just a simple shot. The sky looked good, the building (Centre Point) looked amazing poking through the clouds and the sun was shining. I’m off for a long weekend to Brighton so I may not post anything tomorrow.
This was taken at the Commonwealth Church in Audley Street, just of off Oxford Street. I’m reading Dan Brown’s “Angels & Demons” at the moment which has a lot of references to the architecture of the churches in Rome, so … Continue reading
I must admit, I do love a good bit of architecture and I couldn’t resist stopping when I wandered past the 30 St Mary Axe building last Friday night. All I had on me was the Manfrotto table top tripod, … Continue reading
This is Cardinal Place in Victoria St. I kept seeing this every time I went in or out of Victoria Station on my way to and from work, but I never walked over the road to get a better look. … Continue reading
The second shot from inside the Tate Modern. If you’ve not been to see this installation you really should go. It’s wonderfully simple, yet amazing and vast. You can just wander around these structures for ages. Taking care to avoid … Continue reading
Another early evening shot to finish off a kind of set, I think. It was very cold outside, the evening was drawing in, I walked past this building and it looked so cosy inside. After I’d taken this shot I … Continue reading
I had to take a detour last night to avoid Westlife, who were switching on the London lights. Oxford Street was shut and there was lots of people and lots of screaming. So I was quite pleased when I turned … Continue reading
This was taken the same day as yesterday’s shot, you can probably recognise the sky. The building is at 27-37 Wigmore Street and I know very little about it, other than it looked very gorgeous in the fading afternoon light. … Continue reading
