I have spent a lot of nights over the past few weeks photographing the City of London at night. I have been concentrating on panoramic photographs of the city skyline. Whenever I do this I realise just how much the skyline keeps changing . In this post I have taken the opportunity of delving into the archive and am featuring five images made over the last decade and more.
The first image features the new London skyline. Most of the buildings on the horizon did not exist a few years ago. This is currently my favourite skyline view in London.
The next features Southwark Bridge lit in fluorescent pink, captured last year. A tricky shot to capture – long exposure from the city’s famous wobbly bridge.
This image of the London Eye and County Hall was captured back in 2009. One of many iconic vistas, famous the world over.
This is the Millennium Dome in 1999 before it became the O2 Centre. In those days it was still a white elephant!
The final shot shows Tower Bridge in shades of red during London’s great summer of 2012.
Having spent a decade photographing the Capital I have only just began to realise how I have documented this dynamic city during a period when it has changed so dramatically. Doing this remains great fun and I will continue creating a record of change for a few more years yet!
