London never seems a popular choice to upload for me, nonetheless, it's another (as Nathan (NDODS) puts it), a Marmite image.

Taken on my day trip to the London Eye...when looking around for interesting subjects to photograph, all I had to do was zoom out...they were all around me! As I looked through the lens, I saw something in this frame and later as I was looking at the image, I realised it reminded me of an old masters mural, busy and depicting life in those times, except this one is life in these times...with the play on time coz Big Ben is in the background.

That's an awful lot of thinking for this time of the morning, Loren!Tongue I just noticed the shape, framing and processing and thought 'excellent'. You've caught the sheer press of humanity down there so well, and the view from a totally new perspective for me.

A cracking image Loren which instantly reminded me of the GNER posters which were designed by the great John Stutley. Simply graphically and photographically superb.

Regards Nathan

P.S. I love it...
