Old Londontown


The Austin SXSW PhotoWalk is coming up soon! Check that link for details 🙂

By the way, remember the great London PhotoWalk? There’s a little recap on that link! 🙂

Many people took many “behind the scenes shots of the event”. Some interesting ones from Gergio Amiti (5ERG10) and KBTimages.co.uk(uk_photo_art). Just click on the photos below to jump over to their photostreams to see more!

Daily Photo – Old Londontown

Here’s a fun photo I took while crossing the bridge on the way to Westminster Abbey. You’ll also notice it as one of the main shots featured in that video we put up on the StuckInCustoms YouTube video.

A big reason I ended up tilting the photo wasn’t just to be quirky or artsy or whatever, but I felt like I really wanted that cool light fixture in the photo without losing balance. A normal shot ends up with the light and abbey quite prominent, but a lot of “dead space” in the upper left. I don’t know if I explained that right… I don’t mind white space in a shot, but I feel like it should still be balanced.

    awesome one Trey – love the light! 🙂

  • Nick Sharpin

    Except that is the Houses of Parliament, not Westminster Abbey, but is indeed on the bridge on the way to said abbey 😉

  • Nick, he said he was on the “way to Westminster Abbey” not that the image was Westminister Abbey. I have been watching the Jodi Arias trial, so forgive me if I’m parsing words and objecting to inappropriate comments right now. :]

    Hi di ho Gino we are 2 of a kind even though we are far apart. Love the lamp post and the light on buildings. One can say a hundred bad things about this photo but the choice lies with the Artist and what he feels and what he sees. Have a great weekend all,love you all.

  • Beautiful shot. Makes me miss London. Had a great time when I was there for work last spring. Hoping to make it back there with work again this year.

  • Wonderful photos, Trey. Thanks so much for sharing!!

  • No, he said that a normal photo has the abbey and post prominent, suggesting that both are in the photo at the same time. Not a big deal, but Nick is correct. Nice photo Trey.

  • Chris Lehman

    Trey – question the composition on this one – why the lean? Not that it makes much difference however I was curious.

  • Nick Sharpin

    I hope you’re paying more attention to that than you did this 😉

  • Hi Chris – from the description: “A big reason I ended up tilting the photo wasn’t just to be quirky or
    artsy or whatever, but I felt like I really wanted that cool light
    fixture in the photo without losing balance.”

  • Love the behind the scenes photos! telling the story 🙂

    The colors in Old Londontown photo is awesome!

  • Trey Ratcliff

    Thanks! 🙂

  • I am so sad to be missing the walk this year! I won one of the prizes last year and it more than covered the cost of my trip so a big good luck to everyone who is participating this year in the walk! I look forward to seeing everyone’s work!

  • Chris Lehman

    Yes, I read the description, however that did not make it really clear to me. The shot could have been straight and STILL kept the lamp post in the frame and not left the frame unbalanced. Of course this is just my humble opinion and that is why art is subjective – I was just curious if there was any more to the situation.

    I think the tilt does add a dimension to the photo. The light fixture does stand out here, without taking anything away from the background.
