Is this a part of a larger series? Seems like a great start so far. The B&W certainly works well here!

Adam, Paul has posted at least a few of these separately as part of this project.

I really like these Paul. Most of these tell a story reasonably well to my eyes. The Sphinx and the horse statue are my favourites. It seems quite powerful when you have a person in the frame that complements the subject well.

cheers,
Jason

Paul, I liked these when you posted some of them individually - but there's a synergism when they're assembled that really works - great job.

Thanks, Adam. These are the first lot of images for this project, which I started three weeks ago.

Thanks, Jason. I've learnt that people are a good element to use and include in these images, as they can give scale and as you say they can complement the subject in a number of ways. In regard to people interacting unwittingly or not, that's down to luck and happenstance. Cheers.

I echo Jer's sentiments, Paul. I'm a fan of your work, and while I have certainly appreciated these shots individually, there's undeniable impact seeing them together as a collection/collage. Thanks for sharing them in that way!

Thanks very much, Nate.

I thought there was a photo missing from the collection above, so i've added it. It's the last one in the last row.

Here are a few more images for this project.
I have now started work on compiling these images for a 12"x12" Hardback book, using the services provided by Blurb Books.

This TV camera had been left here unmanned, on the Victoria Memorial. I think it was used in the filming of the out-going Prime Minister and his entourage, who would have been journeying down The Mall on his way to meet the queen, and to hand in his resignation. Something like that, anyway.

I liked the relationship between the camera and the statue in this scene. It makes me wonder if that statue has a remote release in his hand.
