The Light of the Spirit

Another fantastic installation from the Lumiere London festival. This one is the Great North Door at Westminster Abbey lit up by Artist Patrice Warrener. The intricate details of the lighting was both amazing and beautiful.

The French Eye?

Another from Lumiere London. I know these are the colors from the Union Jack but it makes it look like this is a homage to the French especially with that reflection on the water which looks like their flag.

Light trails on Westminster Abbey

This was the highlight of the London Lumiere festival for me. The bright, changing colours on the facade made the sculptures and intricate design feel almost “alive”. After trying to get a picture with the crowds at the entrance, I crossed the road, stuck the camera in between steel rods of a road sign and got long exposures with the iconic London Bus light trails. Glad I didn’t lug a tripod as I was able to make use of other objects to stabilize the camera – not ideal for composition but much more easier on my shoulder!
