on a recent visit back to england, on an enjoyable day out with a couple of old friends, doing some street photography...we found ourselves at the wobbly bridge, otherwise known as the millennium bridge.
ten years ago, i worked at st baths in the school of nursing and midwifery, as the it operations manager. my team and i would often walk across to the tate modern at lunch time - a very enjoyable walk.
ten years ago, i shot the bridge, with my then brand new konica minolta dynax 7d (i still have it)...see the image here:
it wasn't until i got back to canada, going through the images i had shot, that i realized the similarity between the two images - i didn't intend it. the first time, with the dynax 7d, i was very much trying out the camera and the image i captured that day, was a good one and has proven very popular. however, this time round i took my 2 year old olympus em-5, a great little camera, that i under use - so i was determined to take it out for a good workout. finding ourselves at the bridge, late on in the afternoon, i knew the image i was after...i wanted the bridge leading off towards st paul's, as sharp as i could make it, hand held, whilst using a low shutter for blur and movement of the people walking towards me.
