London, Old & New
Lens: DA L 18-55 Camera: K2000 Photo Location: London, UK ISO: 800 
Posted By: sealonsf, 07-23-2010, 11:21 AM

I'm putting together a B&W photo book from a trip I took to London last year and rediscovered this photo. I like how it illustrates modern London - the texting, the sports car, but also "old London" through the reflections of the old buildings. I shot it from a double decker bus. (And yes, the guy is driving and texting at the same time.)

Now this is perfect - I doubt you intended it as a "car shot", but it's one of the best and most unique examples I've seen in some time. The reflections are perfect and B&W was just the thing.

Thanks! Yes, B&W was the way to go because as soon as I converted it I noticed that it made the reflections really pop. I was glad they had a clean car that day. :-)

Knowing the younger generation, he's probably texting her
