Lloyds at Night

Yep.. You guessed it.! Yet another night time shot and yet another long exposure shot.. Sorry if I'm boring anyone...

This time, instead of the Wharf, I walked into the City of London to snap the Lloyds Building. It's a fantastic building to photograph as there's so much going on... Took this shot, a 2 second exposure, resting the camera on a post pointing straight up. I even quite like the lens flare...

If you are unfamiliar with the Lloyds building, here's some info http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lloyd's_building

Here's a few more pics from this evening http://andycphotos.shutterfly.com/640

Definately got man flu... Today I've gone through 2 lemons, a large piece of ginger, lots of honey and half a packet of nurofen but still feel like crap...
No not bored yet, keep em coming, if you can soldier on with the man flu!

posted November 4th, 2010  
Hope you're feeling better soon! This is a superlative shot--so simple, but when you really start looking, there's no end of things going on. A fave!

Lying on your back at the bottom of Lloyds 'percolator' probably gave you a severe chill.

But it was worth it - a beautiful shot.

not boring at all! Keep em coming

Some wicked shots Andy from your other site too, very jealous of not having much near me to shoot. I've knocked it on the head for a while, think I got a cold after up a month shooting outside every night

If you're interested here is a view from opposite Lloyds, from up above on the Willis building, which I think is the curve on the top left of your picture, Some spectacular night work - http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpost.php?p=15909383&postcount=3843

There is full list here. I posted months ago on forum - all nightwork photos buildings from across London. I suggest you get cuppa, as you'll be a while browsing. I know I was when I first found it. Cheers

@andycoleborn surprised you aint been stopped at night either, what with nanny state and pc plod sticking in his nose, even more so round the city.

@azza_l I've been stopped once on the old terrorism issue!!!! Have you seen this? Theresa May to 'challenge' ACPO on photographers' rights http://www.amateurphotographer.co.uk/news/Theresa_May_to_challenge_ACPO_on_photographers_rights_update2_news_303284.html

Your night shots are amazing. Will never get tired of them. I hope to learn from you. I like the distortion on the top of the frame.

My eyes positively popped when I first set eyes on the thumbnail. What a great shot!!! Love the curve of the building on the left (can't tell if it's a true curve or a fish-eye effect).
posted November 5th, 2010  
Totally brill! makes me feel quite giddy!! Thanks for your comment :-) You wrap up now, get that girl of yours to give you some TLC....
posted November 5th, 2010  
Thanks everyone..
@pocketmouse thanks :-) no fish-eye, the building is curved, shame I didn't have a wide angle lens to take full advantage
@Cherrill thanks Cherrill... hoping for the TLC this weekend :-)
@tangie - thanks, am really enjoying taking night shots at the moment.. still a big leaning curve tho...
@azza_l Checked out the links - some superb city shots, has given me plenty of ideas...
posted November 5th, 2010

And this is another great capture.....

Up until 2 years ago had lived in London. Fantastic city. The city itself is well worth a walk round, but not at weekends so much, when everything is closed.
