A London Particular by Richard Pitman

Greeting Cards & Postcards

Available to buy on…

In North London we are in the grip of an incessant fog. Last night, at about 1am, Jo and I went out in the car to see if we couldn’t get some interesting images.
The title’s taken from this interesting description of fog during the Victorian era. It’s not difficult to imagine a myriad of miscreants lurking in the dense mist.
Canon 10D, 28-105mm at 28mm, f/8.0, 0.7sec, ISO 100, tripod mounted.

    I like the way the glistening brickwork leads up to the light. Oh and the texture works really well too!

  • Thanks! It was the shiny, wet brickwork that caught my eye :)

    I can almost feel Jack The Ripper’s presence, lurking around that bend, just beyond the light… An absolutely excellent shot with superb post-work. GREAT!

  • Thanks Jo! Was a bit creepy, especially having been listening to the Suspiria soundtrack on the way there, eh? ;)
