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 :-).
A new image this time and one that I must have edited 5 or 6 different times, each time just not happy with the edit I did. I then revisited it yesterday and did this edit of it and instantly liked it, its odd how things occur sometimes. I think what was putting me off is the lack of clouds or textures in the sky behind St Paul’s, to me I need something to fill that gap or the balance of the highlight with the lowlights was just putting me off.
Anyway, with all that aside this is One New Change shopping centre, almost becoming a bit of a cliche now within the photographer fraternity so I tried something a little different and went for a low POV and surprising it worked really well although I did get an odd look from the gentleman in the photo but I don’t care :-).
Hope you all had a great weekend!
