Last night the manbeast stopped and, while looking over at a few of my photographs, quietly said it was nice to be reminded that one doesn’t need top-notch photographic gear to get a great image. Yeah, that’s a compliment I’ll take. I happen to agree. Some of my favourite shots have been taken on a Pentax ist* DS or the manbeast’s Nikon D70s. Neither are fantastic cameras but they do the job. The above image was taken, if I remember correctly, on Steve’s Nikon D70s. I love this photograph. I love the smog, I love the dirty yellow sunset reflected off the glass, I love the flecks of light on the far-away buildings and the vibrant colours on the bridge. All caught and dealt with beautifully in appalling conditions from within a very dirty pod on the London Eye.
