London in colour

Life has been so busy that unfortunately Oblique Exposure has been a little neglected – it’s something we will hopefully be remidying in the near future with some exciting travel plans. In the meantime I had a chance to get out of the office recently to attend a few meetings, and making the most of the opportunity I took the Fujifilm X10 with me. The photos are split between a few posts- the first focuses includes images in colour, while the second only includes images in black and white.

I have never noticed the colour of these buildings before despite walking through this area on a relatively regular basis – it certainly brightens up the skyline.

Had it not been shortly after breakfast I might have stopped for something from this selection of delights!DSCF2313

The Rainforest Cafe near Piccadilly is a fun experience if you’re looking for a bit of food in an different environment (the cafe is decorated like a rainforest, complete with rainstorms). It wasn’t open at the time but as usual the windows were full of cute stuffed animals.

I’ve seen most of the memorials in London but I hadn’t seen this one before, the Crimea War Memorial. DSCF2329

As you can see here, as in much of London, there is construction going on what seems like everywhere – even in districts where you think they couldn’t possibly be building any more. DSCF2331

I was once told by a teacher that to explore a place properly you need to remember to look up. She was right, at eye level there are so many distractions, and often there are so many more details to the city if you raise your view a little, as I did here. DSCF2356
