Thank you for letting us know what we were seeing.
We went to London a while back for a doo at the Dorchester, my experience was London can grind to a halt without the tube strike so no doubt that only exacerbated the situation. Whilst we were in London we had some free time so went for a walk in Hyde Park when we got back to the Dorchester we found our car couldn't get to us due to some sort of demonstration march. More gridlock as if London needed more!
Very nice series of shots, I like the first shot but I find I am drawn to the B&W shot, this is strange as I normally don't see much in B&W.
Possibly due to being from a generation where B&W was old tech that everyone was trying to leave behind?
The third shot is a great shot from a good position, do many people stand in the middle of the road guarding their tripod at that point?
Also could you tell us what the shots are of, is the first the M.I.5 building? Yes sorry to say that I have no idea of the landmarks in my capitol city!
A few from the weekend in London:
Canon 5DIII and 24-70 f2.8 L
Hi Graham, the first and second shots of from Vauxhall bridge and yes it's the MI5 building. The Third shot is of Admiralty Arc, where the Cabinet Office used to live. I'm not sure if they still do. It sits between Buckingham Palace and Trafalgar Square. This shot was taken on a traffic island in Pall Mall. Shortly after this shot (and not my doing) the whole area became grid locked and that was the end of my traffic trails shoot through the arches. It was a bad day to decide to take a trip to London due to the tube strike.
