Taken from a pod on the London Eye earlier this year.
I’ve been so busy and all over the place for the last week I just simply haven’t had to time to pick up the camera, let alone post anything to the blog. Thanks for all the comments on the last … Continue reading
This Nike ad has caused a bit of controversy recently, so I went to Oxford Street Nike Town to see if I could get some images of people reacting to it. Surprisingly most weren’t giving it a second glance. Update: … Continue reading
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
Portrait anyone? Update: If anyone is interested this photobooth is here.
This is the sheep drive that took place in London on Saturday as part of the London Architecture Week. A flock of sheep we’re driven from Borough Market to Smithfield Market across the Millennium Bridge. Thousands turned up to watch; … Continue reading
Yesterday I went out for a stroll with my friend Stephen. At this point he’d like me to point out we’re not gay. Anyway, I was considering not taking the camera as it would have been a little rude. But … 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 fell into that trap again, I went around on a very sunny day firing off shots on ISO 400. However, I was quite pleased with the results, although they were noticeably grainier than I’m used to. I toned this … Continue reading
Although this is the same subject as the previous shot, I felt it was sufficiently different to post. I’ve taken advantage of the white cloudy sky and blown it totally here. I was aiming to add a more sickly, medical, … Continue reading
This sculpture is called “The Virgin Mother” by Damien Hirst. It’s in the courtyard at The Royal Academy of Arts. The bronze statue reveals the woman’s skull, muscles, tissue and unborn child. It’s fascinating, slightly disturbing, but truly wonderful. I … Continue reading
As with yesterday’s shot, I’m still focusing on the details. I think I need to get out and get some people shots again.
Guess what it’s doing in London? Again.
This is Ram Rod D’arcy and I met him whilst on the tour of Young’s Brewery in Wandsworth at the weekend. It’s well worth going on, during the week if you can, especially because at the end of the tour … Continue reading
I was trying to capture a leaf spiralling in the wind, but this newspaper had other ideas.
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. 😉
See if you can guess where this is in London. There’s some clues in the title.
As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, The Sultan’s Elephant was followed around London by a sea of people so I thought I’d show you The Sea of People. It’s interesting to see in this shot how many people have spotted … Continue reading
Finally, here’s the Sultan’s time travelling elephant that was following the little girl around London for three days. You can read more about the story here. I got so many shots of this I didn’t really know which one to … Continue reading
Ok, so this is the *big* little girl. After coming out of the rocket you saw in yesterday’s post, she then walked and cycled around London for three days. The Sultan’s time travelling elephant was following and you can just … Continue reading
We’ve been invaded. Again! I’ve was so busy at work and home last week that I didn’t manage to post anything. Sincere apologies for that, I’ll try not to let it happen again. Although I did manage to get out … Continue reading
