In my last Post (click here) I showed an image from a passageway on the walk from Charing Cross Station to Southbank via Hungerford Bridge. Today we look up at the first part of that walkway viewed from Villiers Street – a short street that slopes down from The Strand to the Embankment.
There’s a brief ‘window’ where people on the walkway high above pass through an open section where they are reflected in the glass façade of PricewaterhouseCoopers.
Shooting with the Canon G10 was not easy (due to shutter lag). There was very little time to ‘catch’ people when they came into view and I was also endeavouring to shoot over the heads of pedestrians walking along the sidewalk from which I was shooting.
Every time I shoot Glass reflections I give thanks for the fact that Float Glass is very rarely Flat. If it were, life would become rather boring. It’s the capacity of Float Glass to warp and distort the environment that it reflects that adds so much interest to this type of shot.
