Spirits of Westminster

“I remember that cold, foggy February morning—it was 7 a.m. when I arrived at London's Westminster Bridge,” writes Valerios Theofanidis, a member of our Your Shot community. “In modern times, the thick fog in Britain is less frequent, so when it comes many photographers try to catch the moment.” Theofanidis did a series of shots and walked along the north and south embankments of the Thames before returning to the bridge when the sun had risen higher. “Its ambient light created fantastic, surreal views of the bridge and the Houses of Parliament. Walking people looked like spirits.”

Theofanidis's picture recently appeared in Your Shot’s Daily Dozen.
