London 11

  1. Red, indeed. That curve in the part is fascinating.

  2. The red handrail top left balances this out wonderfully (assisted by the orange at the bottom of the left hand escalator) and stops it being like a clip from an advert.

    Great light, shadows and surfaces.

    It is quite a London collection you have made.

  3. Given the vantage point of the photographer I can’t help but want more height in this. I get the feeling when viewing this of slightly leaning over. A greater height to fall would perhaps make it more powerful. It does have a great sense of expectation about it though. All quite serene and quiet. I’d say that’s why I want more danger in it!

  4. Akikana – I would certainly like to see how this would have worked out if we had both been higher up the down escalator, although, as far as I can remember, this one at Tower Hill is not that deep and it took a few nanoseconds for me to hoist in the opportunity. But “all quite serene and quiet” is, to a certain extent (colour, light etc all played a part), what makes this an oddity compared with the usual jamboree. I do like to put a slight skew on this sort of shot.

    Colin – thanks for the observation about the series.

  5. You do have a way with red. That coat and hair together seem a dangerous enough combination for me without more height! Balanced, as Colin said, by the handrail — it all works beautifully for me. I like the row of frames on the wall.

  6. A lovely splash of colour and given the location a simple composition.

  7. Seems to say London quite nicely. Also wants me to yell “stand on the right!”
