Winter in London is a very melancholy yet intimate time of year. Entering this season makes a bit more introverted and reflective. At the same time I am glad to have some time to slow down, visit some of my favourite parts of the city and still capture their beauty from new angles. For example the One New Change behind St Paul’s is a totally new playground to me with lovely new viewpoint of one of my favourite London landmarks.
This year I have mainly been obsessed with light and moods in my personal photography. Wednesday I walked home from High Holborn with my camera firmly in hand. Regardless of the weather or time of year London has real moments of beauty on its streets. These are the moods I captured on that walk.
The WWII typography is still visible on the walls of London at certain places. Seeing the scars of bombing reminds me of the incredible history and spirit of this city. In the case of the photo above the scars made me think how much they look like forming almost a thought bubble for this lady’s enigmatic smile.
As a street photographer I am a sucker for the age old cliché of the frame in frame-approach. Most of the photos above are obvious evidence of this. :) I am slowly getting my street photography gear back on and I’m enjoying roaming the streets of London again immensely. I hope you enjoyed these.
