British Museum

By ade_mcfade      
Just in from a delayed flight back from Barcelona - cheers Jet 2 - so not had tim to do owt with the rew shots I got over there, so here's one from a day trip to London a few weeks ago.

It's that round thing in the middle of the british museum of things we looted from other countries.

Impressive amout of things we've stolen and then put on display for the real owners to come and look at - talk about wiping their noses in it!

Went for mono because it's pretty much mono in there anyway.

I've got the usual shot of the stairs that everyone does too, from that viewing point, but tried for something different

Good point. They are beautiful items but should be returned I think. Lots of stuff now in the US should be returned to their points of origin too! And some 'stuff' we 'export' should probably be kept in the the US, but I'll leave that for another time!

Nice image too by the way. Even a little dizzying!

Nice interplay of light and shadow. Hope Barcelona was productive and I look forward to seeing your shots.

cheers all

barca was a beer holiday with a camera in the bag - far from a photographic holiday.

did get chance to do a few HDR shots in La Seu this morning whilst Iggy slept off a hangover, but the usual mcfade kit and technique was on a settee in morley being un-used.

Awwww Ade .... didn't mean it like that - just meant this was more graphic, mono and er...... it fills the frame. Okay - different, full stop Smile Bedder?

YES! YES! YES! - at last, I've done the exact shot Ade (on Ephotozine). Must be the first time I've got one just like yours, but first!

So of course this is a brilliant shot, and thats the only predictable thing about your photography - the quality mate. Nice one.

I'll let you off Judi Smile

I do quite a lot of that kind of thing but it's never got on EPZ because it gets largely ignored... I'm a click addict I admit it!

just checked yours out Dav... it's the same thing and I'd not actually seen yours either (honest).

Lots of beer and sangria dave. Quite a bit of birthday bubbly too!! Should be around Thurs Dave - if we do leeds, Dav's up for meeting.
