That Square Mile

That’s right this gallery is limited to the historical City of London.

Did you know London has two cities? The other is the much larger City of Westminster, but London is so much more. The Tower of London & Tower Bridge sits in neither, nor does the British Library or British Museum.

Here I have kept this gallery to 48 shots taken from the very start of London.

Although much of the Roman remains of London has been lost, there are still some remnants.

A great deal of the area was destroyed in the Great Fire of London (1666) and the master architect of the rebuild, Sir Christopher Wren’s, work can be seen everywhere.

But it’s not all ancient history, and the modern fits in the spaces inbetween.

And now the gallery

The technical bits

This collection of shots comes from a few visits to the City. I love it at the weekends in winter when you feel you have the place to yourself.

The images were shot on either the Canon EOS 1Ds-MkIII or the Canon 1Dx-MkII. The lenses vary too, either my stalwart 24-70mm f/2.8L USM or the 16-35mm f/2.8L USM.

The images are catalogued in Adobe Lightroom. Some are processed in Lightroom, others make it into Adobe Photoshop for correction or just a little fun.

The images are presented with the aim of capturing a feeling.

As always, any questions about individual images or techniques used, just ask – here to help.

Want to discover more than about London?

We've a little book on our shelves that we sometimes delve into when we're about to hit an area of London.

Packed full of historical facts, and broken down into the different regions of London, it's a great resource to help you see what's hidden in plain sight.

Available in Kindle & Hardback editions, it's an excellent addition to anyone's collection who loves London.

Price: £9.99
Was: £10.99
