Candid photograph of a couple found just as I exited the tube station one evening.

From a visit to the South Bank Fountain on 12 July 2008 as part of the photo-a-day project.
Another candid image of a different couple taken on the same day at the London South Bank Fountain was posted last July.

"A mad, keen photographer needs to get out into the world and work and make mistakes."
On Day 171 (June 19 2008), I sacrificed too much ISO for a decent hand-holding speed; really gutted about the grain in the picture.
Primrose Hill is a hill of 256 feet (78 m) located on the north side of Regent’s Park in North London, England, and also the name for the surrounding district. The hill has a clear view of Central London to the south-east, as well as Belsize Park and Hampstead to the north.
Tower 42 is the tallest skyscraper in the City of London and the fifth tallest in London as a whole. It was originally built for the National Westminster Bank (NatWest), hence its former name, the NatWest Tower.
Seen from above, the tower closely resembles the NatWest logo (three chevrons in a hexagonal arrangement). The tower, designed by Richard Seifert, is located at 25 Old Broad Street. It was built by John Mowlem & Co between 1971 and 1979, and opened in 1980, costing a total of £72 million (approximately £222 million today).
It is 183 metres (600 ft) high, which made it the tallest building in the UK until the topping-out of One Canada Square in Docklands in 1990.
