City structures

I’d really hoped for better conditions on the day I made all these photos in London. The day before had beencontrasty sunlight, blue skies, and interesting swirls of cloud. The day I was able to do some photography was beset by drab featureless grey skies whose only redeeming feature was that the tops of some of the tall buildings disappeared into the cloudbase in an atmospheric fashion. Still, as a photographer in the UK, thses are conditions to which you must resign yourself because they are likely as not to arise when you least want them.

So here are four pictures shot in the City of London – London’s business and financial district – on a cold, grey morning at the end of November.

To misty heights
Into the grey
The foot of the Gherkin
