Light and Shadows

I was walking down a little street at the back of Euston Station and just loved the way the light and shadows turned this very ordinary wall into a visually interesting wall. The reflections in the car windscreen just added to the picture.

Great photo! Euston is in quite an interesting area. Quite close to where I live in Hong Kong there was a castle called Euston and inspired by the Euston Fire Station. If I can find a photo I'll put it on my blog for you.

Winter light can be so stimulating. The wall is very ordinary, even ugly, but with the shadows... a different story indeed.

I like this pattern on the wall!

Winter shadows in the backstreets of Euston, who would of ever thought of that?

Great photos. You obviously have a knack for finding an interesting aspect of everyday scenes.

Long light; friend to the photographer. But... not everyone would stop to really see this; you have a great eye.

I love your blog- and this particular, whilst not as beautiful as some of the others, stands out to me. It's a very ordinary scene- but the light of this time of year changes it into an interesting wall which the imagination can use to full potential. An inspiring blog, and a noteworthy picture to represent our darling capital city. Keep up the good work.

Wish I had your talent! Thanks for sharing it with us. Checking your photos brightens up an otherwise dull evening!

These pictures are really impressive,there's kind of spontaneous feeling on them. What I really like is that you write some background information (like in the Piccadilly Circus and Shank's Pony entries), so it works as a London's "esthetic guide".

I must say, that is a great picture. To go along with what Adam said...
Brick walls are never ordinary!

February 25, 2009

I will definately agree with that. There is just something about brick that makes it more appealing. You know that actual work had to go into it. And it can bring a bit of history in some cases.

Another thing I want to say is when I visited London, France, and Spain, it really opened my eyes in the history of those place. I live in America, and with just a history of 300 years or so, the places in Europe are amazing.
Those trips gave me a whole new concept of world history.
