On the Thames

Almost ten years ago – in November 1999, if memory serves – I was still living in England and I took part in a City and Guilds photography course. Before leaving the course (as I was teaching the tutor new techniques instead of learning anything), I made it through to a project towards the end of the first term. We were asked to take a set of photos for assessment. I decided that I would take a series of photos along the Thames, starting at Hampton Court Palace and Richmond Park, and working my way east to end up at the (then new and since re-branded) Millennium Dome near Greenwich at dusk. This is the first of a series of shots I’ll be posting from the series, of the Houses of Parliament photographed from the southern bank of the Thames. All of the pictures were shot on medium format film using a standard lens on a Bronica ETRSi.
