In my honest opinion the original Hungerford Bridge was much better looking than the current one but I might be biased towards Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s designs. The new bridge however, has a wonderful view all across and so we created this timelapse video at sunset to help you appreciate it.
Good things come to those who wait. Third time lucky. Patience is a virtue and any other relevant idiom you can think of applies to this video. The first attempt was on New Year’s day 2012 and the weather ruined that. The second attempt was a couple of weeks ago and poor preparation ruined that.
The product of the final attempt is below for you to see and we really hope you like it because it was a bastard getting it done. @xirfan
I’ll admit it we were running late for this one so we didn’t start early enough but we really didn’t have to. This part of London is great, there were lots boats and you can see the shooting stars in the West landing at Heathrow. The rotation of the London Eye is too slow to see with the naked eye but this time lapse really speeds it up. Did I mention the Moon? @xirfan
On the day of the Lord Mayor’s Show you might think it would be difficult to get in to central London by car, find a parking space and set up tripod, camera and laptop opposite one of London’s most famous land marks. It wasn’t. The evening was clear so there wasn’t a very wide range of colours but the lighting on the dome looks fantastic in HD and those Buses don’t stop coming, not bad for a Sunday. @xirfan
