london-17-2

The Shard in London, the tallest building in England’s capital city, has its top shrouded in fog. On days such as the one pictured above, a veil of mist surrounds the beaming peak, while the rest of the building, as well as the city itself, remain clear and visible. Upon seeing it in such a state, I wanted to capture it, because it looked eerie and beautiful. The statue, erected on top of a public bathroom, happened to be nearby and I thought it looked like a lone woman standing against the tyrrany of the many. I can find a lot of symbolism here, but I will leave it to the viewer to decide for themselves what it represents.

The photograph was slightly edited to tweak the colours from a slightly yellowish hue to colder tones. Sharpness and brightness have not been changed.
