This was taken back in June when I had the pleasure to meet up with Italian contact Luca Libralato… Luca contacted me at very short notice on a Sunday evening to see if I was free on the Monday for some shooting, I did have plans but changed things around… and I’m glad that I did as we enjoyed a few beers before heading out for a sunset, an all round very pleasant evening and it was very nice to meet you Luca!

So this is a fairly touristy shot but I do enjoy shooting the “Houses of Parliament” and it’s not far from work. I’m slightly disappointed with this though… while I’m happy with the sunset and colour the building works take the shine off of the final result… oh hum what can you do??

Many thanks all for the comments and faves on my last photo, it’s one of my personal favourites and I’m happy that you all like it.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend…

Wow... My first ever Explore No 1, many thanks everyone :-)

After leaving the Chinese New Year celebrations in Leicester Square, I wanted to wander down to get some night shots of London landmarks. I've taken a few from the north side of the Thames, but they all look quite standard. Walking past these tree on the South Bank, I saw how detailed they were and wanted to incorporate them into the photograph of the Eye. I'm especially pleased at the detail in the bark and how everything in the photo is leaning one way or another. Even the dull gray winter sky has taken on a lovely subtle burnt brown tone.

A fairly recent addition to the London skyline, Portcullis House was built to provide offices and meeting rooms for British Members of Parliament and their staffs.

Personally, I'd have designed something that looks less like a cross between a Soviet prison and the entrance to Mordor...

15th Oct 2009 - Thanks for your kind comments and invites everyone! I'm glad you like it.

I took a number of similar views and I liked most of them; some were technically better but I liked the bird in this one, so here it is warts and all!
In addition to favourable light and sky I had the good fortune to find that the River was full too; this makes a lot of difference with London images.
In addition to the Houses of Parliament, also in this picture are Portcullis House and the rooflines of the Methodist Central Hall and Westminster Abbey.

Portcullis House is located just opposite Parliament in Westminster, London. I really liked this building, it looks like a great steam ship with the portholes and a series of chimneys (like smokestacks) along the roof. Apparently the chimneys are part of an unpowered air-conditioning system.

The architects, Michael Hopkins and Partners, say the building was conceived in 'the tradition of a Thames-side palace facing the river'. It won a RIBA architecture award for the design.

The building is designed as a six storey rectangular block around a central courtyard. The roof is supported by stainless steel joints and intersecting oak beams, covered by a glass skin.

The chimneys on top of the building are part of an energy efficient, ventilation system. The external walls are made from aluminium, bronze and laminated glass and are blast-proof.

The building's curious profile, with its rows of tall chimneys, is intended to recall the Victorian Gothic design of the Palace of Westminster and to fit in with the chimneys of the Norman Shaw Building next door. Portcullis House's chimneys are not used to expel fumes but are part of an unpowered air conditioning system, which is designed to draw air through the building by exploiting natural convection flows. It is based on the system used in 1996 in the Eastgate Centre, Harare, Zimbabwe. Those working in the building would argue that this system is rarely effective enough.

The Collegiate Church of St Peter at Westminster, which is almost always referred to popularly and informally as Westminster Abbey, is a large, mainly Gothic church, in Westminster, London, just to the west of the Palace of Westminster. It is the traditional place of coronation and burial site for English, later British and later still (and currently) monarchs of the Commonwealth Realms.

taken from the london eye towards the top of its ascent

you can see many interesting buildings in this view:

The tall tower @ the back right is part of Westminster Cathedral (not to be confused with Westminster Abbey in the middle of the picture) - its the Roman Catholic cathedral in westminster - the tower itself is called St. Edward's Tower.

Westminster Abbey sits in the middle of the picture. Buried in the cathedral are a huge amount of the previous kings and queens (and famous poeple) of england - see here for a full list.

The Palace of Westminster dominates the left of the picture - with the clock tower prominent - usually called Big Ben - this in fact refers to the Bell in the Clock Tower as it is called.

Portcullis House sits to the right in the foreground.

I'm not sure what to make of Michael Hopkins Portcullis House on the left of this shot, it's one of those buildings that seems to fall between the Contemporary and Traditional stools. I also seem to remember that it cost an awfully large amount of money at the time for what was essentially some offices for a third of the MPs. In this shot it does however make a good foil for the Tower of the Houses of Parliament.

From Wikipedia : "When commissioned in 1992 the cost of Portcullis House was to be £165m. After building cost inflation and delays, the price increased to £235m. Costs included £150,000 for decorative fig trees, £2m for electric blinds and, for each MP, a reclining chair at £440."

Loosely based on the symbol of the Houses of Parliament, the portcullis, Portcullis House is a big office building with committee rooms and office accommodation for MPs. It's just across the road from the Houses of Parliament.

If you look closely at the ground floor, you can see another great symbol of British life, Tesco.

Portcullis House, which is opposite Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, contains offices for MPs and a suite of modern meeting and Select Committee rooms. It was completed in 2000 and was officially opened in February 2001.

The architects, Michael Hopkins and Partners, say the building was conceived in 'the tradition of a Thames-side palace facing the river'. It won a RIBA architecture award for the design.

The building is designed as a six storey rectangular block around a central courtyard. The roof is supported by stainless steel joints and intersecting oak beams, covered by a glass skin.

The chimneys on top of the building are part of an energy efficient, ventilation system. The external walls are made from aluminium, bronze and laminated glass and are blast-proof.

Portcullis House, which is opposite Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, contains offices for MPs and a suite of modern meeting and Select Committee rooms. It was completed in 2000 and was officially opened in February 2001.

The architects, Michael Hopkins and Partners, say the building was conceived in 'the tradition of a Thames-side palace facing the river'. It won a RIBA architecture award for the design.

The building is designed as a six storey rectangular block around a central courtyard. The roof is supported by stainless steel joints and intersecting oak beams, covered by a glass skin.

The chimneys on top of the building are part of an energy efficient, ventilation system. The external walls are made from aluminium, bronze and laminated glass and are blast-proof.
