London Eye photos

Photographing the London Eye

Something of a ongoing project documenting different ideas over a long period of time for photographing one of London’s most iconic landmarks – The London Eye.

Taken with a Canon Powershot A80 compact camera in about 2003 this view of the London Eye at night is now about as cliched as they come. A bizarre set of circumstances ended up with UK Prime Minister Tony Blair saying how much he liked this photo when he visited Imperial College (true story). Although I’ve sold this photo a fair few times it serves as a reminder that as soon you put a photo up on the Internet lots of other people think its fair game. Consequently it appears on numerous other websites, many of which rank higher on Google image results.

Adding weather into a London eye shot such as these ‘mackerel’ clouds is a way of capturing a more unique shot. I liked the sharpness of the structure against the fluffiness of the clouds.

Photographed at the top of their journey this photo of three London Eye pods is free from other distractions but still just about recognisable. Originally the Eye was designed to be a temporary exhibit but now its hard to imagine London without it.
