Artist's Description

Looking towards Canary Wharf, London, with One Canada Square (Canary Wharf Tower) in the centre.
The camera was on a tripod, but I blurred it to try and get a nice effect…
Cropped to get rid of excessive black sky…

An experiment, as I have not tried a serious long exposure shot before. I feel though that it is a little too blurred in the top section.


The more you see the less you know
The less you find out as you go
I knew much more then than I do now

Neon heart day-glow eyes
A city lit by fireflies
They’re advertising in the skies
For people like us

And I miss you when you’re not around
I’m getting ready to leave the ground

Oh you look so beautiful tonight
In the city of blinding lights

Don’t look before you laugh
Look ugly in a photograph
Flash bulbs purple irises
The camera can’t see

I’ve seen you walk unafraid
I’ve seen you in the clothes you made
Can you see the beauty inside of me?
What happened to the beauty I had inside of me?

-City of Blinding Lights, U2. Just thought it was relevant.
