It was a sunny day and they’d just finished repainting the Southbank side of the iconic Tower Bridge, so I thought I’d try to capture it at its best. I wanted to include the bridge’s suspension arms as well as its towers, so I opted for my wide-angle lens and have left the perspective uncorrected because it’s so extreme (and fun, I think).
As this is a shot looking north, you can see the Tower of London and the City of London on the left. The latter is the capital’s financial centre, and so contains a large number of its high-rise buildings: here you can see The Gherkin, Tower 42 and the Willis Building, among others.
And, of course, it wouldn’t be the archetypal London image without a red bus in it…
