The architecture of the National Theatre and Southbank Centre make for stark backdrops for street photography. Despite my loathing of visiting central London on a weekend I ventured in one fresh sunny Saturday in February but as usual ended up taking images that cut out the people and focused on the structure in isolation. I arrived late afternoon to use the stark shadows for high contrast images and this trip was a concerted effort to get through a roll of film that had languished in my F5 since Autumn the year prior. I need to force myself to get out shooting more in London as its right on my doorstep for now; too often I have an excuse like the crowds, the weather, or simply not feeling inspired by the urban environment. Whilst I mainly enjoy photographing Nature I do have one of the great world cities on my doorstep and I should probably try more photography there. To counter my lack of inspiration in the city I've recently been expanding my photobook collection to give me some influence to expand my thought process in photographing the city where I reside.
All shots taken with a Nikon F5 + expired Ilford Delta 100.
