Of Best Laid Plans ~ London Night Shoot 25Feb18

Postby Pen Pusher on Wed 28 Feb 2018, 1:15 pm

Due to filming around Broadgate/Bishopsgate/London Liverpool Street Station my original night shoot locations were not available so I’ll save that night shoot for another night shoot. Resorted to Plan B and went for a bimble along the river to Vauxhall and back. I was using my Samyang 12mm/f2.0 NCS CS Ultra Wide Angle Lens. Not used the lens much as I wasn’t into manual focusing when I got it, even though I started my career in photography using manual focus, but don’t have a problem with that now. I quite enjoyed manual focusing even if it did take a bit longer to take a photograph. Left the hotel at 4pm and got back just before 10pm in the order taken.

Lloyds of London Building from St Helen’s Square with the open, exposed entrance to The Leadenhall Building to the right.

Standing in the middle of Lime Street, it’s closed off at both ends, and looking straight up at Lloyds of London and the Willis Building.

As part of ‘Sculpture in the City’, with exhibits changing each year, Damien Hirst’s ‘Temple’(2008) is a 21-foot high painted bronze sculpture which has been standing on Cullum Street near The Leadenhall Market for most of 2017.
Image
The Sherlock Holmes Pub is a Victorian themed pub in Northumberland Street and when it was known as the Northumberland Arms Hotel, is said to have featured in a couple of Sherlock Holmes stories. When the hotel closed it was refurbished by Whitbread & Co and opened as The Sherlock Holmes in 1957.

Beats kissing under the mistletoe. What you can’t see is their camera on a small tripod between the bollards with the shutter release on a timer.
Image
Railway viaduct over Black Prince Road which is near to the old Royal Doulton’s site and the walls of the tunnel are lined with themed Doulton pottery mosaics.
Image
Bondway Bus Station, Vauxhall, Lambeth, is adjacent to the mainline and underground stations. Opened in 2004, the two cantileverd arms contain solar panels that provide the bus station with a third of the electricity it uses.
Image
I’m sure I saw this building get blown up on television over Christmas. 85 Albert Embankment marked on Google maps as ‘MI6 SIS’ (Secret Intelligence Service).

Tate Britain adding a touch of warmth in colour on a bitterly cold winter’s evening.

The Cenotaph, a stone war memorial unveiled in 1920 and the location of the annual National Service of Remembrance.
Image
No.11 & No.12 Waterloo Place, St James’s, London a 1913 Edwardian Baroque style building.
Image
Where the Neal’s Yard Remedies shop now stands the offices above were once the studios and editing suite for Python Films. On the wall is a blue plaque, along the top edge it reads ‘Animation Editing and Recording Studios’ and in the centre ‘Monty Python, Film Maker, Lived Here, 1976-1987.
