In the world of magic, my friend and mentor Darwin Ortiz described me after viewing this site, as the possibility of becoming, "The Eye of London". Darwin brought to my attention another pioneer in the world of photography, the name of "Brassai". He was an Hungarian photographer who flourished during the middle years of the 20th century. Brassai, like Henri Cartier Bresson brought a fine sensitivity to his craft and found capturing the night life of Paris to his particular calling. In fact, Brassai was dubbed "The Eye of Paris" by Henry Miller because he enjoyed the nocturnal approach to Street Photography.
It was indeed a compliment that Darwin Oritz, one of the finest exponents of sleight of hand card magic in the world, would draw reference of my early start in photography to such a high calibre artist in the world of creative photography.
Darwin's comment got me thinking, and it inspired me to go out tonight with the sole intention of capturing London at night. It was a wonderful experience because I shared the evening with my friend Julian James, another fine magical artist in his own right. Together, we saw London and all of her colourful beauty through the lens of my D90, I hope you enjoy this collection along with the Shot of The Day.
I really feel that these shots need no further commentary from me, the beauty speak for themselves.
My shot of the day was a tough choice, here it is.
