Nature and Landscapes
Urban and City
Who would have thought that I can get a shot like this in London! Whenever I am there, the weather is really bad, but this ONE time, things just turned out fine.
When you see this place, where do you think it is?
I give you a second here....
You probably thought along the lines of a nature reserve or simply out in the countryside somewhere, right? Wrong. In the middle of Sorrento, Italy, there is a bridge. And when I say in the middle, I mean between the main Plaza and the train station! Now, this bridge goes right across this ruin! If I were to turn around, I would look at about 3 restaurants and the main road plus 24321 little shops that are in the city centre :D
I was more than just confused that this would just sit there. There is no way to reach it as well - and it is not maintained in any way, shape, or form.
Having said that, it is also kinda awesome to have such a ruin untouched in the city centre. Other places would have made a 20 Euro pp attraction out of this place - but not Sorrento. Good Show Guys!
Today it is time for some black and white action. While spending some days in London, I aimlessly wandered around to see what the city has to offer, photography wise. And I was not disappointed! When I saw this railway station, I right away thought about an image that is mirrored, with the man in the glass cubicle being some sort of operator. I did not have much time to stop, which is why I literally walked out on the road with heavy traffic, stopped it for a second and took my image. The drivers seemed not to mind to wait for a moment, something I am very thankful for. We all know how mad drivers can get every now and again, hehe.
