The Guardian by GiuseppeTorre

A stitch of six vertical shots for this wide picture of London; one of the best sunset ever seen in this city.
I took this photo surrounded by more than 20 other photographer; this is really the most photographed place in the world!
My big regret is to show you here the low resolution version only, from an image large more than 9k pixel.

Declamation of democracy by Vahlenkamp

How did England become a democracy?

In 1721 Britain became a full constitutional monarchy, under George I, when a single parliamentarian (Robert Walpole) became head of government in the office of First Lord of the Treasury, which later became known as “Prime Minister”. By this time Britain had the largest and most powerful Empire in history and the British people were the freest in the world.

Finally the democracy came in 1918 with the Representation of the People Actwhich saw the size of the electorate triple from 7.7 million to 21.4 million.

Ghosts on the bridge by GiuseppeTorre

The shadows of the tourists over the Wetminster Bridge; impossible to remove them, even with 150 seconds of exposure.
I usually pursue the rare MAGENTA light at late sunset, but sometimes, the real mood of the place photographed comes out with the GOLDEN light just few seconds after the sunset.
