Our midweek London Street Photography Meetup (to make up for none last weekend) was entitled Lurking in London Bridge. Polly's choice of location meant that my journey was a mere descent of our lift, so I actually managed to not be late!
The remit was we'd scout a suitable location (or lurkation, as we prefer to call it) and wait (and wait) for characters to enter our chosen stage, all whilst being surveilled by the ever-eager security guards. You can take a photo of the Shard (though they'd probably rather we didn't) but standing in one spot for 20 minutes photographing shadows falling onto the blinds of the Shard is mighty suspicious! I was challenged, but in a curiously passive way. "Are you taking photos of shadows?". Response, "yes!" "Ah, okay then!"...mumbles into walkie talkie..."Yes, she's taking photos of shadows..."
I chose three main lurkations, plus two subsidiary spots and shot nearly 250 photos - that's a lot of lurking and a lot of whittling down!
