Sorry I have been quiet on here lately, I have been eagerly wanting to upload my Open House London images but I wanted to just wait a little as sometimes there can be too many uploaded onto Flickr in one go and sometimes can get missed with the mass upload.
This is Canada Water Library and one spiral staircase I didn’t know existed so was glad to add it to my ever growing list of Spiral Staircases. The staff here were very polite and allowed you to wonder around the building which from the outside is very interesting, almost looks like a bunker but when inside you would never know it looked like that from the outside.
Of course this is the centre piece of the whole building and my wide angle lens was just big enough to get it all in frame. Just a nice little touch to the overall image was the other photographer on the chairs at the bottom, I don’t know who she is but I like that little addition to the photo, I hope I was just as photogenic in your photo too :-).
All this talk about Open House London has made my have a fresh look at some of my older photos that I have taken during Open House. As promised this is a continuation of my Open House series so it can help you decide on certain venues.
I have always liked this photo when I took it however looking at my editing style from 4 years ago I was not as keen on it as I once was. I thought this would be a perfect candidate to get editing on and this was the result.
When I first started out in photography my editing style did include HDR quite a bit but now I hardly do HDR at all, I am just not keen on its look and I go for my natural editing styles and editing styles which I feel compliment the overall image.
How have you found your editing styles have changed over the years? Do you prefer yours now or how it was back then?
With one of my students Padma Inguva; thank you Padma for letting me use a “Big Guy” Canon’s absolutely stunning new wide angle lens.

Have a look at the Black & White version here:
One for my ‘Conception Fabrication’ collection, this is one of the tunnels at Embankment Tube Station but its my interpretation of it and hope you like it.
I hadn’t visited this station in a few years as it was undergoing a major refurbishment and to my astonishment they had got rid of the dark blue tiles that lined this tunnel and replaced them with a cream coloured version which in my opinion I don’t like and look horrid! The blue tiles I felt gave the station character although it did make it a little dingy in places which I suppose is why they got rid of them and I got to thank those cream tiles as it made the job easier in creating this high key feel.
Hope you are all having a great day and many thanks for your comments on my photo yesterday.
