Ice Skating at the Natural History Museum

Some candids from the Winter skating at the Natural History Museum over the Christmas break.

Probably a bad idea to use the 135mm on the Canon 20D but my Canon 5D was broken at the time and I favour the 135mm a lot.

The City of London at Twilight (February 2006)

(Archive image from February 2006; each image was taken within 20 minutes of the other one).

The City of London at Twilight on Tuesday 28 February (20 minutes later)

In the medieval period the City was the full extent of London (as distinct from the nearby but then-separate City of Westminster), but the term London now refers to a much larger conurbation containing both ‘cities’. The City of London is still part of London’s city centre, but apart from financial services, most of London’s metropolitan functions are centred on the West End. The City of London has a resident population of under 9,000 but a daily working population of around 300,000.

[…]

The size of the City was originally constrained by a defensive perimeter wall, known as ‘London Wall’, which was built by the Romans to protect their strategic port city. However, the boundaries of the City of London are no longer the old City Wall as the city expanded its jurisdiction to the so-called City Bars such as Temple Bar. The boundary froze in the medieval period, thus the City did not and does not control the whole of London.

From Kayode Okeyode: Victoria Embankment at Twilight (Tuesday 28 February 2006)

Victoria Embankment at Twilight (Tuesday 28 February)

This is another of the twilight shots taken on 28 February; it will be the last one from that series which I will be putting online because it got dark shortly after.

This was taken from the same location as the others but unfortunately, I didn’t have the reach/view-point necessary to create the composition I really wanted.

I finally got round to cleaning my sensor today; I couldn’t get rid of all the dust but the camera is usable for the time being and I no longer have any excuse for not taking pictures in the last two weeks.

From WikiPedia’s entry on Victorial Embankment:

The Victoria Embankment, is part of the Thames Embankment, a road and walkway along the north bank of the River Thames in London. Victoria Embankment extends from the City of Westminster into the City of London.

It was completed in 1870 under the direction of Joseph Bazalgette, and was a project of the Metropolitan Board of Works. The original impetus was the need to provide London with a modern sewerage system. Another major consideration was the relief of congestion on The Strand and Fleet Street.
