The London Eye sees more than you could ever imagine ...
London – around the eye The London Eye, right next to the river Thames – a subversive culture of random tourists mixed with hybrid entertainers from a circus beyond the imagination of the ordinary. Never failing to open up the gap in your mind which then tells you WTF is this all about?! The smell of coffee drifts and mixes with the linguistic murmur of many lands. Multi layered memory of spinning orbs in bright sunshine, whilst a man in a black wig does Elvis with a swing of his hips and golden medallion on his hairy chest. Candy floss on a stick, snow globes & England flags, whilst the Thames floats on by regardless as it always has & always will do, with the occasional log & shopping trolley…. A waiting station for alien transportation perhaps?
Those orbs that glisten on their rounded journey. The Truth is out there … ?
The goat can see up to 340°. Lucky him! Thank goodness we have the Horizon camera to catch excellent views our own average eyes could never see. Check out the crème de la crème of panoramic vision here!
If you visit London in the next few weeks,you might bump into a Paddington Bear sculpture more than once. Don't be alarmed, he's not following you around. There are hundreds of Paddington Bear sculptures dotted around the city in celebration of the launch of a new film. We captured a few using the glorious Petzval lens. Take a look here.
Read on dear friend and I will weave a story for you. There may be more questions than answers raised by this peculiar tale. But if it’s clarity you seek, have no fear, things will become clear in time (they always do, don’t they?). So rub the Sandman’s dust from your sleepy eyes and take a journey with me. If you think you have an answer when we reach the end, please do share it in the comments!
There are small pleasures and big pleasures. A small one, like eating a chocolate after lunch, the first day of summer after a cold spring or finally meeting that girl you see every day on your morning commute can be more satisfying than anything else. As for me, shooting live music shows with the Petzval Lens is one of those small pleasures.
