On my way from the office to the train station today, I noticed the wonderful new moon just next to the London Eye, probably the most recognizable architectural structure in London today. I did swear at not having my DSLR with me, but my little P&S did not do badly at all, especially if you consder that the Eye was in motion… :-) I just love the two opposing crescents!

My grandfather was a serious amateur photographer in the ’20s and ’30s, leaving me a legacy of stereoscopic pictures and equipment. The bug passed through the genes to my father and to me. I started taking pictures seriously when I was 11 and I spent most of my teenage years in and out of the darkroom. University, work and kids put photography on pause but my first digital camera in 2006 re-kindled my interest. RB has given me a vehicle for sharing my work and for learning so much.

    Love the crisp orange red against the dark indigo sky! Very well done, George!

  • Thank you Johanne :-) I had not seen the London Eye clad in red lights before, that’s what attracted me in the first place.

    Another great shot, George! I like how the moon looks so little yet we know it’s actually so much bigger. (not an eloquent way of saying it but hopefully you get the idea!)

  • You’re absolutely right – it looks like the proportions are all wrong :-) Many thanks Ann :-)

    LOL – it’s like the eye is saying “I’m bigger”. Beautifully seen.
    Hmmm – the gorillapod is great isn’t it? I use the SLR-zoom one with my SLR and it’s really handy.
