Great shot by @kobussaayman! I’m sure you know that St Paul’s was rebuilt a few times over time, but we might have been looking at another generation of the structure in 1940. During a bombing raid in WW2, a two ton bomb landed near to the Cathedral. It didn’t explode on impact, which meant people thought it to be on a timed fuse, not only this, it was sitting next to a gas pipe....a brave crew spent 3 days extracting the bomb and then transported it to Hackney Marshes, it could have gone off at any point. It was safely detonated here and left a 30 meter crater...so it was a very good thing it didn’t go off next to St Paul’s. Two men received the George Cross in their bravery in removing it, one you can find in the Cathedral. Check the link in my bio #thelondonstories
Wall reflections of St. Paul’s Cathedral.
When my wife said we were off to London Christmas shopping, I started to plan a few photo opportunities. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What I struggled with was all the people..... so many people. I went to St. Paul’s Cathedral and searched for some leading lines. Then I found this view with both wall reflections and lines from the wall and the steps. I met a german gentleman who started explaining micro contrast and sensor technology to me.... as an ice breaker.
This is a long exposure in order to blur or all lose the people. This helps a bit too with the dramatic clouds.
I don’t shoot much in London but I have a few to come and I will definitely be shooting again up town again soon.
