Theme Day - "A Photo from the waist down"



This shot could only have been in London. This month the worldwide City Daily Photo Blogs theme is a photo "From the waist down". and this place is all about your feet. That's because this person has one foot in the eastern and one in the western hemisphere. We are at the Royal Observatory Greenwich - the place where time starts. Taking this type of photograph is essential for tourists.

There's so much here that I'll come back and tell you more another day.

52 Daily Photo sites are participating in the 1st December theme, "A Photograph from the Waist Down", please use the links to below to visit them.

Due to time zone differences and other factors, the theme photo may not be displayed until later if you are viewing early in the day.

Such an interesting place,isn't it, (h)our Greenwich. Second to none, let's face it. As you say, so much to watch in so little time - the minutes rush past - you have to keep clocking up the visits. Lucky you found this young lady to pose, she's got it just right, you have to hand it to her. It's a great pic.
Thanks for slotting me in at the last min, Ham. Anyway it's late and i'm up early so ... Busy day tomorrow. Night!

Fanatstic incorporation of the theme Ham. Also, the grey sky in the background is very London I would say!

 

Blogger Kate said ... (01:53) :

What an especially effective photo, Ham. You bring it all together: place, theme, mood, composition, unique. . .brillient. Love the shot because it's anything but "touresty" yet you mention it's an obligatory thing.

 

Blogger Annie said ... (05:00) : 

That was a great idea for a photo. I've never been to Greenwich Mean Time before.

 

Blogger Sally said ... (05:07) : 

Fantastic idea, and execution. Good capture of place.

 

Blogger Louise said ... (06:30) : 

Great idea, neat shot ham. This place always fascinates me, as does the concept of time and its measurement.

 

Blogger Pierre said ... (06:57) :

Ham, your cobbles remind me of my mosaic tiles. Nice photo!

 

Blogger Susan said ... (02:35) : 

We did the obligatory "straddling the line " shot when we were in Greenwich, but took ours down on the grass, near the playgreound. Yours is a much better photo than ours was! My sister lived in Greenwich for several years and I loved to walk around the area. Gorgeous place.

 

Blogger Randy said ... (03:23) : 

Very nice shot Ham!

 

Blogger Keropok Man said ... (06:20) : 

I have a picture of myself standing exactly there too.

Yes, only in London.
My sister is back from London too today!
