This is Orbit.

It is wonderful.

It may not look wonderful, but then first impressions can be misleading and it’s what’s inside that counts. Or something. Not that he has much inside.

Anyway, this is a crazy rollercoaster-esque structure built within the Olympic park and offering a view over the surrounding area, including a little bit into the stadium itself. It’s meant to be a legacy build, which means now that the Olympics are over this should remain as a viewing platform/work of art for the foreseeable future. It’ll still cost £15 to get up it, I’m sure.

    Loving the POV and especially the urban processing, rather suits the structure. Thanks also for your kind invite for a photowalk. I am a bit booked up with my own plans but will certainly give you a shout the next time I am passing through town and have a spare evening. Cheers matey!

    Great angle and processing. I'm a big fan of Anish Kapoor.
