Shot this in the summer. The Shard towers over London (well, it would, it's a tower) and more than a few people were excited of the prospect of a laser light show at its formal inauguration.
Myself and many other photographers waited with baited breath for the event to begin.
It began. But it was difficult to be sure. I have no doubt the people involved had their hearts in the right place but the publicity hyped it up so much, including a graphic of how the Shard would 'light up London', that maybe we were expecting too much?
Anyway the only way I could find of making the Shard laser light show look anything like interesting is this film,
Tower Bridge opened several times on 28th February 2012 to welcome the Olympic Rings to the Pool of London. The event was organised by the Mayor of London to mark 150 days to go until the start of the London 2012 Games.
The rings, which measure an impressive 11.5 metres high by 25 metres wide, were on show between London Bridge and Tower Bridge between 6am and 1.30pm.
Londoners and visitors alike flocked to the river to watch the rings being displayed in the heart of the capital. In the afternoon the rings were towed down river to Greenwich and Canary Wharf.
This time lapse sequence was taken in the morning from the south bank from Shad Thames and in the evening from the Tower of London.
