A brief sojourn to the Thames yesterday, and I managed to capture the doom and gloom of London in February in all its splendour.
The trick i reckon with B&W is heavy on the contrast and on the over exposure, bigs up that grimey feel.
The recent (mis?)use of section 44 by police officers (which allows them to stop and search anyone in. or in this case taking photos of, a specific area without having caused an offence) made me feel slightly perturbed as I ambled along the river bank fiddling with my camera snapping buildings with apparent fanatic enthusiasm. The possibility of being stopped and made to justify a mere artistic endeavor isn’t something that should be accepted in the 21st century, end of.
