The camera exposed

The camera exposed

There’s a story behind this photo. (I know, there’s a story behind every photo.. but we don’t always share them!)

This image was taken shortly after we had visited the Victoria and Albert Museum. My main purpose for going to the VandA was to see an exhibition called “The camera exposed’. This was a series of photos that all include a camera – and some including the photographer. This intrigued me.

So, when we arrived at St Paul’s – looking for somewhere to eat lunch – I spotted this mirrored surface. It was the perfect opportunity to make a connection to the idea behind the exhibition. So, lunch was slightly delayed. The green blob in the reflection is me. You might have to enlarge the photo to see the camera.

I think the raindrops add a certain je ne sais quoi to the shot. Raindrops featured again later that afternoon. But that’s a story for another time,

(Other, similar images can be found on my Flickr site – if you’re interested.)
