What’s this? As someone that want’s to show there is more to London’s architecture than One London Place, what’s up with the photos of it? I’m currently trying to blast through a couple of long lists of buildings to photograph as assignments. One London Place happens to be on a list and I have wanted to get it done. This morning I was filled with anxiety for some reason and it almost held me back from going out for sunrise as I intended. Actually, the anxiety was related to parking downtown and not having change for parking meters. I know, it’s ridiculous and I overcame it by telling myself I’ll park at one of those spots that I can use my credit card to pay easily. Once I saw One London Place with some lights on, I decided to see if I could catch enough additional images for the client to choose from. As well, as soon as I started shooting, I noticed my anxiety was gone.
As I prepared, I hoped for either thick fog to be present or for some great sunrise colours playing with the architecture. I, sadly, didn’t reallly get either. However, I got to One London Place before sunrise, capturing the building during the morning blue hour. I wanted to share those 3 images and add what was going through my mind. I’ll do this for 3 more photos after the sunrise and show how much the light had changed. Overall, I’m amazed at the photographs due to the light not being ideal.

Got a favourite?
In the end, these may all be tossed away but I felt committed to seeing what could come of the photos in post-production.
I’d love to hear from you in regards to which photo of the 6 you like the most or feel is the strongest from the set.
