Oh, that’s my photo…

Even though I know that my commercial work gets used all over the place in brochures and web sites, it’s still great to unexpectedly come across a photo in use, and be able to say ‘I took that‘.

The other day, I was heading down to London to do some photography teaching for a company, and decided to go by train.

It’s been a while since I left the city from Leicester railway station…

There, between the tracks is a poster welcoming people to the city

Leicester railway station - welcome to leicester sign

Yes – it’s one of mine :-)

The photo above is from my iPhone – a camera I still use somewhat reluctantly.

The image of Curve on the poster is cropped from one created when it was being built – here’s the full version.

It’s a stitched panoramic view taken with a TS-E 24mm shift lens. I used a step ladder, to see over the fence and get my camera level at the same height as that of the bottom line of the curtain wall structure.

Here’s a finished view that’s also been used for quite a few promotional  items.

And here’s the blue tower block that you can see in the background at the station.

Yes, I know it’s what I do for a living, but it’s still nice to see your photos in use :-)
