London Bridge, February 2011
The Shard rising into the fog
My new Facebook Photography Page: Kayode Okeyode Photography
This is two horizontal shots stitched together with ptgui for a square image.
The shot was set up on Day 137 (previous day) but there wasn’t much river traffic when I needed there to be so I went back on Day 138 for this shot.
(The purplish sky in recent shots are rain skies at twilight).
This present bridge was built in the early 1970s but there has always been a bridge at this site and the first bridge built in 50 A.D. may have been built by the Romans.
This is another picture of the London Bridge on Valentine’s Day (Day 45); I have cross processed it because it was overcast that day and my pictures came out with a reddish brown sky that I couldn’t get rid of despite shooting RAW.
The color of the light flowing from the bridge and bathing the pedestrians has not been altered.
The reason the color of the light is different from the previous picture is because the color changes every few seconds.
In retrospect, I should have used a faster lens and freezed the movements of the pedestrians . . . but the lights are all gone now so this is an idea to pursue next year.

From the Switched On London website:
Switched on London is a lighting festival in the capital that aims to highlight the importance of sustainable lighting design in the night-time urban environment. A number of sites will be lit from February 7th – 14th in an energy efficient way to show the power of light in the city.
