Glorious London

In the space of a few hours I experienced London in two realms, Joy and fear.

Last night I was invited by my friends Valerie and Raskita to City Hall for a guided tour. I got to see where our Mayor of London operates. The last time was I here was when my dear cousin Stephen Wiltshire drew his Panorama of London in the main Lobby.

This funny shaped building is very impressive and a photographer’s dream to work from many angles

What would you do to get the perfect shot? 

All dressed up, on my back, looking up, greeted by this glorious sight.

I have always wanted to photography London from a high vantage point, especially during The Blue Hour. I was grateful for this opportunity. I did not have my Tripod with me because I wasn’t expecting this situation. These images are a true reflection of how powerful the Fuji X-T1 and the 16-55mm work well together at high ISO.

As I look at these images, I am privileged to live in such a glorious city.

Today, London was under attack…again.

Another act of terror gripped the capitol.

Our Mayor took to the airwaves to reassure us that we will not cower under this threat and intimidation.

We must remember to fight for what we hold most dear.

London is ours to protect and defend.

I came across this quote: 

“When there are things that don’t go according to plan, London will cope”. 

Jeremy Hunt 

This sums up my feelings perfectly…
