London Icons 2


Another mono, this time showing St Paul's Cathedral (1708) and the Millennium Bridge (2000), which go together strangely well, I feel, considering that there are 300 years separating them.

  1. St Paul's, despite being an undoubted icon of London, has never looked to me as though it belongs there. It just doesn't look at all English. A reminder perhaps that London has long been a European and world city rather than just the capital of the UK. I very much like the use of B/W for this appealing juxtaposition.

  2. Looks like we're in for another good series of photos from you. I'm inclined to agree with John about St Pauls; viewed from some angles - Paternoster Square, for example, it looks almost Italian. And you're right - it does go well with the bridge.

  4. This image is a beauty, jennyfreckles. I have photographed St.Paul's and that bridge before, but I didn't think to take it from below as you have. Excellent perspective.
