Tower of London poppies

Some more shots from yesterday with the 40mm fixed lens, and the amazing installation at the Tower of London of 888,246 hand made ceramic poppies, to commemorate the 888,246 British military deaths in the first world war 100yrs ago, amazingly simple idea, incredibly effective and memorable.

Spectra!

Stunning art installation by Ryoji Ikeda that was next to the Parliament building last week as part of the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War. The 15km high monumental beams of light were accompanied by an ambient soundtrack giving a very calming feeling to the whole experience, the last shot is the view from my back garden 6 miles or so away!
