London from the Shard

London_From_The_Shard_1024x1024The new header image  you can see above (and to the right, click on it to see the bigger version ) was my Christmas present – it’s a 2 metre-wide print by Neil Williams that was bought from his stall in Northcote Road market.

It’s stitched together from a whole load of individual images – as he says on his Facebook page, “I had to handhold the camera because you’re not allowed to take up a tripod. in the end I merged about 50 images together.”

You can see more of Neil Williams’s London photos on his website.

Bleeding London

Bleeding London avatarBleeding London is an exceptionally ambitious, and potentially quite wonderful, project to capture a picture from every street in London.

It wasn’t something I was aware of until I stumbled across a piece about it on the BBC News site and (I may be wrong) it doesn’t seem to have had a huge amount of other publicity, but it’s the sort of thing that’s worth getting behind, particularly as “Anyone can participate and pictures can be taken on any device. There are no restrictions on subject matter”. I might even dust off the old box brownie, set the fedora at a jaunty angle and hit the streets round SW11.
