The colourful light and water installation plays in Granary Square, in front of the handsome new building of Central Saint Martins arts college. I admit to stumbling across it by accident, and was quickly swept away with attempts to photograph it.
Its complicated sequence of water jets, illuminated by many colours, proved a challenge. I tried a very high ISO and shorter exposures, the complete opposite to this, together with a host of angles. The “fireworks” shot (above) was my favourite among many blurred disasters, while the foam residue was unexpectedly beautiful.
I’d just been warned about taking photographs here – but it wasn’t stern enough to send me away from this place without any shots.
