After visiting the fantastic installation in the memory of each of the 888,246 British or Colonial military fatality during the First World War, we spent the afternoon wandering around the City of London (AKA just The City). There you can admire some of the most remarkable buildings where the main trading and financial services industries are located.
For the occasion I brought my Canon 5D mark II paired with the Canon 17-40mm f/4 L, an unbeatable combination for architecture photography -if we don’t take into account the tilt&shift lenses, of course…-. It was Saturday, so the streets were almost empty. That made me go for a processing to transform the pictures into a mistery and dreamy look.
One of the most famous building in the area is the 30 St Mary Axe, also known as The Gherkin. The building was opened at the end of May 2004, and has been internationally awarded for its innovative design and environment care solutions.
There are a lot more lovely buildings in London…so more architecture pics expected!
