A Year in Pictures – 27 April 2015 – This Way to Lombard Street

Exit 6 from Bank Station is the one I generally make for in the mornings as well as my usual entry point for the journey home.

I was intending this morning to shoot the Tudor dragons—emblematic of the City Corporation—that flank the names of the streets and landmarks accessible from this exit, but this man absorbed with his phone were also in the shot. "Expect the Unexpected" has increasingly been my motto in recent years, so I went with the flow and gave him some unwitting limelight.

The church in the illustration behind the man is St Mary Woolnoth, the work of Nicholas Hawksmoor— its strange twin towers loom above you as you reach street level at this exit. Part of the interior of this remarkable building featured in this blog a few weeks ago and I want to return there before the year is done.
