    London's ever-changing skyline

    London’s ever-changing skyline

    From a photographer’s point of view, it’s always exciting when a new building is completed. This time, the excitement is tinged by a little sadness, as the new Cheese Grater (on the right, otherwise known by its nickname, The Leadenhall Building) now obscures the wonderful outline of the Gherkin from this angle. This and more [...]

    Aliens Invade London!

    (well, the alternative title was  “More Shardy-Olympicy Goodness!”) This was the scene last night, as The Shard was quietly ushered out into polite society like a blushing girl at a debutantes’ ball… Not.

This was taken at sunset on a very hot summer’s day. [...]

    Sorry, but I couldn’t resist the pun. This was taken in the gorgeous blue tunnels of Embankment Underground Station. We pass through these areas so often, but rarely appreciate their abstract nature. See more from this shoot at my www.London-Prints.com website.

    The Royal Park in Greenwich will be the site of the Equestrian Events of the London 2012 Olympics. This was the scene earlier this month for the London Olympic 2012 Equestrian and Modern Pentathlon Test Event, with the National Maritime Museum and Canary Wharf beyond.

    London 2012 Olympics – One Year to Go #1

    We can finally count the time until the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games in days, not years. While the main site is still difficult to access and not so pretty due to ongoing construction, we’re getting an idea of how everything will look once finished.
