Twosday Tuesday: Big Ben in Red


Here at Lomography, we always like looking at the creative and random photos submitted by our community members in our downtime. And, amusingly, we find that there are a lot of snapshots that bear a striking resemblance to one another – be it in the way they were composed or in idea – even though they were taken in different parts of the globe!

The *Big Ben* is one of the most famous symbols of London, United Kingdom. Actually, the popular moniker refers to the bell that is housed within the clock tower (now officially known as the Elizabeth Tower) located at the Houses of Parliament. A must-visit tourist destination, it is also one of the world’s most photographed landmarks – our community has hundreds of photos of the Big Ben, too! In this feature we’re highlighting two of these, selected for their close similarity in composition as well as the film used.

Like the one above, this snapshot was taken with the Fuji Velvia 100F as well, this time loaded to the Diana F+ by *bravebird*.

Tune in next Tuesday for the next of twin photos! In the meantime, check out our Twosday Tuesday series in the Lomography magazine!
