A world-class city at its vibrant best: stunning photographs of London
Posted September 24, 2008
Anyone who has visited knows what a great city London is, in many ways a collection of highly urban villages, but with obvious concentrations of economic activity and architecture. I'm not going to go into policy analysis in this post; I'm just going to show you some stunning aerial photographs and tell you how to see more on the web.
These were taken by photographer Jason Hawkes:
You can view 19 of Jason's amazing shots of London on The Big Picture website. Even better, you can go to Jason's own site and see many more great aerial photos of many more things, from a fish farm in Hong Kong, China to a garden maze in Hertfordshire. The site notes that Jason has been involved in 25 books, with photos taken from as low to the ground as 100 feet to as high as 19,000 feet.
High-res and larger-scale photos and usage licenses are available for purchase on the site.
