It's hard to get an original shot of "Big Ben", so I thought I'd go for one of the least done shots. Only about half a million of these, but what can you do!

 

I saw this lamp and wanted to get that into the shot beside the Clock Tower. The only way I could actually get this angle was to lie down in the middle of the footpath amongst the tourists. Sadly a very kind tourist had stopped to let me take the photo, not realising that it was taking me 20 mins to set up and shoot.

 

He eventually moved on when my friend Lisa told him how long it was taking me.
