Okay so it isn’t the world famous “symphony of lights” that illuminates the Hong Kong skyline but it’s the first one that I’ve seen in London.
The laser show was to mark the finishing of “The Shard” which is now the tallest building in western Europe and love it or hate it I think that it’s an amazing piece of engineering and architecture; and I can’t wait to get up to the viewing gallery.
I’m sure that you’ve all seen the photos from Thursday night so sorry to bore you all with another one. I was hoping to take this from a different location…. nearer London Bridge but I didn’t leave work until 9pm and by the time that I got down there it was rammed, I’ve never seen so many photographers. I then headed to “Tower Bridge” and it was the same story there, so I went on to the banks of the Thames in-between “Tower and London Bridge”. I’m not overly happy with the comp a few more lasers pointing towards the centre of the image would have been good but it was kind of tough knowing how everything was going to pan out ☺
A lot of people are saying that the show was a disappointment and I guess that after the first 10 mins it was very samey…. I think that they could have done a lot more choreography of the lights but I still enjoyed it.
In case you are wondering this is made up from 2 exposures, one for the water and one for “The Shard”
I’m off out to a junior football comp so I’ll catch up with your streams later, have a great day whatever you’re doing!
