Capturing Your Attention

This week’s theme is ‘London: After The Summit’ – photos from an evening shoot in London last week.

From Smithfield Market, I wandered south to the Museum of London. In true British fashion, it’s built on a roundabout, and is connected to the surrounding streets by several elevated walkways. Down at street level, I spotted this bright lobby display beneath the local gym, and thought that it would make for something a little different. The display changes colour over time. I preferred the warm colours of the reds and oranges myself.

Smithfield Market

Last week, I was in London for this year’s Scale Summit, and afterwards I went for a wander through the City of London to try my hand at some night photography. I’d been in the City exactly a month earlier, speaking at the PHP UK Conference, and had spotted all of these interesting sights – but hadn’t had my camera with me at the time. Friday’s trip gave me the perfect opportunity to go back with my camera and see what I could capture for you.

My first photo this week is the magnificent roof and hanging clock of Smithfield Market. Originally built some 140 years ago, it’s got that Age of Progress vibe that you’ll find in old railway stations like London Waterloo and London Paddington – only much much cleaner and much better lit.

Solar Cells

To finish the week, here’s a set of solar cells, spotted beside the lighthouse on the Brough of Birsay up in the Orkneys. I was surprised at the patterns hidden in the cells; I think they’re beautiful.

Corrugated Roof

(Delayed from yesterday due to a problem connecting to the Internet …)

Continuing this week’s theme of textures, here’s a rusty red corrugated roof, spotted in Kirkwall on Orkney’s Mainland.

Bronze Art

Continuing this week’s theme of textures, here’s an extreme close-up of the side of a temporary bronze sculpture that I spotted outside Salisbury Cathedral recently.
