In the new year, I am running a series of night-time photo walks in partnership with the London Transport Museum, and I am pleased to report they are selling out fast! Night-time is such a fascinating time to see the city – the atmosphere is different, the streets are (sometimes!) quieter, and the play of artificial light on the city scape is such that sometimes you feel you are looking almost at a different world. Certainly, there are some buildings I have photographed at night that look utterly distinct from their daytime appearance.
Today’s picture shows a view of the City skyline which always seems to me entirely different at night. With the shape of the buildings picked out in artificial light, the gathering gloom around them, and the swish of headlamps from cars in the side streets, the scene is transformed.
A few tickets are still available for the night walks in January and February, and can be booked online at the London Transport Museum website.
