From the Sky Garden

Sky Garden1

On Friday we visited the Sky Garden on top of the ‘Walkie-Talkie’ building in Fenchurch Street, London ( the building that burnt the tarmac and damaged a car – or so I hear! )

It ( the Sky Garden! ) has on its 35th floor ‘roof’ a space open to the public – a garden and a viewing platform and a couple of restaurants. ( Tickets only, free, book on line, google ‘Sky Garden’ )

These are some of the images I took on the visit!

We picked the worst possible day – with pollution coming in from across the Channel coupled with sand from the Sahara. The light was not the kindest it could have been.

On top of all of that, the area is surrounded ( almost ) by thick, blue-tinted glass – so almost everywhere you point a camera you are struggling with reflections and ( as I discovered when I got home ) a very obvious blue colour cast.

All of the images took some work in post-processing, Lightroom mainly, and Photoshop CC if Lightroom was not ‘heavy’ enough.

Worth a visit? Certainly. But if you are a photographer, good luck!
