Sitting on South Bank, the south side of the Thames, and running between Tower Bridge and Hayes Galleria, this complex of shiny, ultra-modern buildings - designed by Foster and Partners - has captured my eye and imagination.
I can sometimes find modern office complexes rather sterile in their bold, if not grandiose, statements in steel and glass. They often lack texture of buildings not made of glass. However, there can be a playful side to them in reflecting the world around them.
It’s a photograph that could have been easily altered or set up – it hasn’t been altered in Photoshop in any way. It is easy in this day in age to be cynical enough to think that this photo hasn’t been altered.
As a photographer, I love these sorts of photos – impromptu photos that fall into your lap. I couldn’t walk by and not take the photo. It was too striking, and challenging. Although it’s not perfect – it’s not straight, and had momentarily wished for a camera with shift movements – the reflections make up for this.
I am sure I’ll keep discovering, and rediscovering More London and the surrounding area.
