Blue Eye

London Eye - stationary. At the time of taking this shot, I remember wondering why there were so few people around. Apart from being freezing cold, it turned out everyone had gone home because, unbeknown to me (I had my iPod on) there were riots around the corner at Westminster! Recalling the news at the time, the protest was against an increase in student fees, and Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall's car had been attacked as they travelled through London. After taking this shot, I packed up my tripod and walked around the corner only to be met by an army of riot police! Alas, they wouldn't allow me to proceed to take photos of the protesters!
