The Dome
The Dome
Located on the South side of the River Thames in Greenwich, London, The Dome is a tourist attraction. More commonly known as The O2 London, it is a live music venue. It also features a cinema, restaurants, nightclub and other attractions. It is interesting to view during the day but it's at night when it truly comes to life. Advertising billboards, street lights and the dome structure itself lights up the area around the Dome creating a space station like complex, that Nasa would be proud of. Probably most impressive seen down or up river as seen in this image, captured along the banks of the University of Greenwich. The image has a nice balance of lines and the curve of the structure itself breaks the image, making it exciting to view. This image would look impressive in a modern kitchen or lounge as a main focal point. The mix of different colours would fit in with most colour schemes. It would look particularly impressive mounted and framed, to give it a reflective surface highlighting the colours and blacks. Fun fact about this image, in some lights the viewer should be able to see a thin green line running through the sky, this isn't a camera error or glare and certainly not a printing error. It is in fact coming from the Royal Greenwich Observatory and is the Greenwich Meridian 'line' or laser.

Tower Bridge
Tower Bridge
Tower Bridge located in the heart of London is by far one of London's most famous, if not most famous landmark and attraction. This image captures a frequent but rare sight that even some locals haven't seen, the bascules raised, which allow for tall boats to sail through with ease. Vessels with a mast or structure of 30ft (9m) or more that want to enter or leave the Upper Pool of London can ask for Tower Bridge to be raised. They often have to do this 24 hours before and there is no charge for it to be lifted. The gulls in the shot, really did fly in to shot at the exact moment of shutter release. It has been left in to signify London's ever present wildlife, that appear obsolete in many images. It also highlights that the Thames contains freshwater and seawater and joins the North sea. Theses gulls have obviously found their way in land and are enjoying a different scene.
