The Travel Book – Travel Through A Photo – London, United Kingdom

There is always a story behind a photograph and I thought it would be a fun way to look at the world of travel. So, welcome to a new feature that will appear regularly this year in the travel section. Today we are going to kick things off by looking at one of my favourite photos.

If there is one place that I never get bored of taking photographs of then it is London – due to it;s architecture and history still on show, you can get a photograph of the same location and always get something that looks completely different and new. One of the most magical times to shoot a photograph of London is at night time as you can get some really impressive shots. Today’s photograph is an image that I love and always makes me smile when I see it.

It was winter in the capital, I think I was on my way to an improv rehearsal and I decided to walk across London Bridge and then I looked across to Tower Bridge and was welcomed to this wonderful view across the Thames. The moon was high in the sky, there was a slight cloud and everything was a light and reflecting in the water – it felt pretty magical so I took a photograph.

I love the way that the moon is above the bridge, it creates this really wonderful effect that creates height and sort of makes everything look a lot more smaller which creates a lovely juxtaposition. I remember that this night it was freezing and I think this is evident in the photograph as the lights look bright and sharp.

I love photographs of Towerr Bridge because no matter how many times you see it, the look of it always changes – it can look historic, it can look dramatic, it can look romantic. I think in this photograph it looks like an inviting welcome to the Capital, it makes the world feel a huge place and that we are centred in a city that is full of millions of people, it is pretty breathtaking and that is why I took a photograph.
