An eye for the London eye, part 5 of 5

An eye for the London eye, part 5 of 5

My final post in a series of 5 and I wanted to focus on the spokes, I’ve therefore selectively moved out of focus the external elements and added a slight vignette to draw the eye inwards. I toyed with a square crop, but thought this unconventional size was better. I’d be interested to know which of the five images you …

Steps into the Blue

Steps into the Blue

From the beach in Guillaume, Normandy – I loved the starkness of the beach, the steps and the mizzly sky. Aperture: ƒ/4 Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark II Focal length: 24mm ISO: 50 Shutter speed: 1/2.5s Title: Steps into the Blue

A trip into Croydon (initially to get my car fixed and still waiting) and seems Argos had been the victim of  looting. Not quite sure how someone has left the scene of the crime with one of their Nikes missing…

Rolls Royce Malaise

Rolls Royce, in Noir

An evening listening to grime, dubstep and urban noise has lead today’s post to be a little… well… dark! Needless to say this photograph won’t make it to the album in this state, but enjoy!

Atlas at the Rockefeller

Deus Ex Atlas

As it was set in NYC, it’s hardly surprising that this city reminds me of Deus Ex. This statue of Atlas, which is by the Rockefeller Center screams to me ‘Cyberpunk’ and there’s something about this statue that embodies the dark dystopian vision that’s portrayed in the game.

Door to the bunker

Door to the bunker

This is not an overly dramatic title. This genuinely is a door to the bunker. The bunker is under Kenley aerodrome (also known as RAF Kenley). Kenley Aerodrome is only a stone’s throw from my house in Caterham, Surrey and a great venue for walking or riding. I understand that pilots would shelter in these bunkers, which were only metres …

Wakehurst Place

Wakehurst Place

I imagine it’s not possible to have an interest in Photography, Architecture; or architectural photography without being a member of the National Trust. Of course I am, and Wakehurst Place is both (in my opinion) one of the most beautiful buildings in the National Trust portfolio (though there are many) and nearest my mother. This photograph of Wakehurst Place was captured …
