Life Through a Lens – The Iconic Buildings of the City of London

Capturing the City of London in all it’s glory……

I love taking photographs and I’ve always got my camera with me snapping away, hoping that the next shot is going to be a little bit acceptable!  So in order to take better photos, I’ve just enrolled on an Institute of Photography Diploma course to improve my somewhat lacking skills.  What better place to practice my art than The City of London with its abundance of iconic buildings.

Here’s the London Skyline with the newly built Cheesegrater in the middle, the Walkie Talkie to the right and Tower 42 to the left…
