we live on bethnal green road, which by all accounts is quite a busy place, there's always something going on outside, whether its a fight between drunks, teenagers or taxi drivers, singing girlies at 3 in the morning, cars catching fire, demonstrations or the sound of the bars across the road singing their karaoke or listening to football. so i knew that the snow wouldn't last on the road and if that was the case here it would certainly be the case in the middle of london... but how would the mush look? how would nelson look with a dusting of the white stuff sitting atop his lofty hat, i decided to make my way down to the square before work and get some photo's......
i was taking pictures of this seagull for ages trying to get the composition right, just as i was giving up and walking away i turned around and it was perfect
i love it when the tree's have that light layer of snow on them, they look so noble
this is st martins church reflected in the crypt next to it, originally i was just interested in a very dolled up baby being prepared to be taken outside but when i looked up i saw the reflection and the glass roof and the photo really just took itself
i love the cold pallet of this photo, its actually intended to be part of a larger collage i'll probably start after i finish this post, the water looks so violent and powerful in this shot and the couple of girls walking past frame it so perfectly, honestly i don't how my camera finds these shots, especially as i can only see half the screen
love the movement of the seagull here, i've been hanging out with the seagulls a lot at Trafalgar square recently they make the funniest noise and i love their skinny unstable looking legs
my favourite photo, the water in the fountains had iced over a little and the ice really brought out the blue of the pools, it was as magnificent in real life
sometimes i feel so blessed to live in this city, the austerity and nobility of the architecture in places is breathtaking, i walk around feeling like a tourist, trying to take in all the sights that i can, i love the squirrels and pigeons and rats and rude boys and taxi drivers and burkha wearing ladies and foxes and corner shop owners and tourists and everything else that makes up the rich fabric of london. everything is so wonderful right now, i can taste christmas and thailand, seeing the family and scooting around paradise, oh joy!
