Friends. Photography. Adventure.

More than a couple o’ cupolas

“The Thames is dear to the Londoners. It is the scene of half their pleasures. In the summer season it is ever in their thoughts, and they are often on its bosom.”

A.D., “The Banks and Bosom of the Thames”, The Metropolitan, Volume 41

On Wednesday The Other Livvy, @19syllables and I had a day out to the Tate Modern to see the new (and excellent!) Olafur Eliasson exhibition. Before we headed into the show we popped down to the banks of the Thames so see if there were any photo opportunities. These chains hanging down from a boardwalk seemed just perfect. But the most important question is: do you prefer Christopher Wren’s cupola or those of my beautiful friends?

Sinful Sunday

    Oh. Oh wow. My cupola overfloweth. Incredible work from models and photographer. Wren’s genius doesn’t come close. Wow.

    I am enjoying them both, I wish though that your friends had the same lighting that Mr. Wren’s work has in this photo.

    Just a month ago I stood in that same spot, but then on the walkway above, and took a picture of Christopher Wren’s cupola. It seems the view ‘down under’ is much better. Love this image!
