Winter is coming, in every sense, and Barcelona feels like a different city. Back to some street photography on Monday…
Nice fan geometry from a kiosk near Canary Wharf metro station, London. Chailey has a much better photograph that shows the whole kiosk… The last of the expired-film batch that was badly scratched in processing, so again this picture has some extensive patching in photoshop.
The Canary Wharf metro station entrance, London.
Traditional London metro entrance sign contrasting against the glass and steel in the background at Canary Wharf.
There is something very harsh about the Canary Wharf architecture in winter. All of the colour and interest seems to have been driven underground in to the shopping centres, with mostly the industrial scale office blocks above ground – it is an interesting contrast with the more colourful buildings in the new developments around Barcelona (an extreme example being the Torre Agbar).
Under a bridge near Canary Wharf, London. It was a pretty and cold and grim Saturday, and very dark. Fortunately it seems possible to hold the Leica steady enough for some relatively slow exposures, despite the lack of image-stabilisation or other fancy features (get off my lawn!).
Slightly abstract architectural photograph from the area around Canary Wharf, London. Taken using expired Fuji C200 film.
A view of Canary Wharf, London. I was gong to make a pun about “Canary Row” (Cannery Row), but it seems that someone did it much better a long long time ago…
The first of a short sequence of images taken in the City of London. The clocks seemed appropriate today – I can not think why. When I see this picture all I can think of is “beware the radishes of time” – probably because it is twenty past Noon. Leica M7, Zeiss C-Sonnar 50mm and expired Fuji C200 colour film, shot with stacked ND and polarising filters, and an ageing photographer.
