Lord Nelson (err, Duke of York)

Lord NelsonThe Duke of York*, from behind, in the morning fog:


I don't know why, precisely, but I think that there really is something about this picture. Maybe the contrast between the very red bus and the the very grey day.

Thanks to Jinn&Tonic for the correction! My bad!

It's perfectly London, to me. Or at least the way I saw it every time I was there. The grey-ness. Everywhere. The grey-ness.

Terrific picture. Loving them all, actually. :-)

This IS a great pic. I have found that often, pics that I took on the fly with no thought to comnposition, exposure or placement have turned out to be my favorites. Not unlike photojournalism. I tey not to put too much effort into anything else, why should photography be any different? LOL

I love Lower Regent Street. I don't know why I love it - it's a short nothing of a street. Your photo captures the peculiar charm of a road that says "this is London" but there is no real reason to visit that particular place (other than to walk from one tourist sight to another).

BTW - that isn't Lord Nelson. It's the Duke of York. Nelson's column is in the middle of Trafalgar Square (500m to the left of this pic).

I think I like it because of it's grey tones, which become increasingly darker as you eye moves down to the street. There's also sense of depth or distance created by the monuments in the background and the bldgs in the foreground. Finally, that cute red buses; a splash of color in a sea of muted and dark tones.

You should post pics more often!
