A recent spell of snow and ice here in west London had a transforming effect on the landscape. Everyday, ordinary objects of street furniture that would usually go completely unnoticed became items of interest. I saw them in a different light and wanted to photograph them with their winter coats.
BBC Television Centre and the surrounding area is a very familiar place. Fences, barriers, handrails, balconies, benches – and even a clunky yellow structure on the roof of the building – were dressed up and suddenly catching the eye.

Wow the perspective on the bench shot is amazing, what focal length and aperture did you shoot that at? #
Thank you Lucy. It was f5, 22.3m. And I got down very low on my haunches to be very close to the bench!
Great blog, but an annoying one – very inspiring photos, but the snow’s all gone, so I’ve no chance to replicate! :D Love the Yellow Snow image. :)
Thank you Richard, yes, these are rather retrospective all of a sudden, and there’s another batch to come tomorrow! I couldn’t resist calling that Yellow Snow :-) That’s this structure on the roof of Television Centre – I’ve no idea what its function is!
