Turn again whittington....

Leadenhall market has a history going back over 600 years, when Dick Whittington (yes, that one, the Lord Mayor of London) was made the owner of it. It nestles behind the Lloyds Building, there are four arms, of which this is one. These days it has more cafes, restaurants and pubs than market stalls, although one remains - but I'll show you that tomorrow.

It is quite a delightful place, and blocked in as it is by offices, very easy indeed to miss.

This is a cool scene and a really nice shot! Did you do two shots with different exposures?

No, one shot - not even on my E500, but experimenting with a litte Panasonic LZ1. Conclusion? The E500 sure is better but the LZ1 doesn't fill the panniers!

One shot, wow, it's impressive how nicely the covered area comes out! Congrats!


PS: are you talking about the Olympus E500?

Thanks for posting this shot. It's now on my list of places to see when I next get to London!

SF -> Yes, it is the Olympus E500 and I'm really pleased with it. I just lust after the better lenses, now.

Stuttgart - Thanks, it will take a bit of finding!
