The City of London
The landscape of the City of London financial district has changed a lot in recent years with new iconic towers appearing to alter the skyline of the square mile. This is a four minute long exposure photograph taken from the south bank in front of City Hall. The dominant landmark here is 20 Fenchurch Street which was designed by the architect Rafael Viñoly. It is known informally as the Walkie-Talkie building because of its distinctive shape. Moving to the right, you can also see Tower 42, 122 Leadenhall Street (The Cheesegrater) and 30 St Mary Axe (The Gherkin), with The Heron Tower peeping out from behind it.
This was taken on a recent photo walk with my friend and amazing photographer Julia Anna Gospodarou, who was visiting London at the time. If you like architectural photography and particularly long exposures, then you probably know her work already, but you should certainly check it out if you don’t.
