People Make the World Go Round

Millennium Bridge, London

People make the world go around. Nowhere is that more true than in a big city. My husband and I were touring with friends in London one September day and found ourselves at the Tate Modern entrance of the Millennium Bridge, overlooking the Thames and St. Paul’s Cathedral as we walked down the ramp to the museum entrance.

The sky told me we were on the best end of a rainstorm, with the clouds creating an interesting backdrop to the building and contour to the light. I was struggling for a way to show off the city scene and the bridge when I rounded the corner from the bridge to the ramp and found it in front of me. The mass of people moving from one end of the pedestrian bridge to the other gave life to the city scene and created a sense of perspective, as well as setting off the construction elements of the bridge. I used the zoom to create a tight crop and shot.
