The opening of the Shard

The opening of the Shard

Unbelievably, Renzo Piano has yet to send me a personal invite up The Shard. Nevertheless I visited London Bridge tonight to capture the opening of this iconic building. I wait patiently for my invite. I will trade a ticket for rights to this photograph! Aperture: ƒ/4 Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark II Focal length: 35mm ISO: 400 Shutter speed: 1.3s …

Cyberpunk in Time Square

Regular viewers/readers of my website will know I’m a great lover of the genre of Cyberpunk. With the exception of Tokyo, I can’t think of a scene that embodies Cyberpunk in modern day than Times Square. This image is a combination of no less than 18 exposures, some judicious post-processing in Photoshop, and a ticking off from a NYPD officer …
