Marble Arch on Park Lane, at the Western end of Oxford Street and to the North Eastern corner of Hyde Park. It wasn't always here though. This white marble triumphal arch was designed way, way back in 1827 by architect John Nash (no, not the mathematician from 'A Beautiful Mind') who is also famed for his work in Regent Street and the Brighton Pavilion. The intention was for it to be the stage entrance to Buckingham Palace. At this point in history, however, the palace was unoccupied, unfurnished and something of an obsolete white elephant. When Victoria ascended to the throne in 1837, Buck House was hurriedly completed in order to be her official London residence. But her growing family (nine children!) soon outgrew this relatively small palace, and so an additional wing was built on the elevation that now faces The Mall -- the one that holds the famous balcony we always see on state occasions. There was no space for the arch in this redevelopment, and so it was moved in its entirety near to where it stands today. Widening of Park Lane and other modernisations of this part of London has necessitated it to be moved since this, and unfounded plans about 15 years ago were for it to be moved AGAIN into Hyde Park itself. Anyway here it is, opposite its eponymous Tube station in Westminster. -/- 📸Canon EOS 60D, 7" exposure @ f/22 18mm ISO100. - 📍Marble Arch, Westminster, London W1 - 🇬🇧15/I/2019 - @MarkAshleyG - Made in Britain 🇬🇧 - 📌Tag Cloud: #marblearch #westminster #victorianlondon #westend #oxfordstreet #hydepark #london #slowshutter #lightstreaks #buckinghampalace #urbex #urbanphotography #urbanexploration #nightphotography #lowlight #longexposure #slowshutter #parklane #lovelondon #visitlondon #londonguru #travel #instalondon #itsslondon #london_igers #mylondonphoto #europe - 🔗Cloud: @ig_london @london_igers @instalondon @londoncityworld @city_captures @loves_united_london @londonarchitecturepics @loves_london_
The #HeofonLightMaze by @benbusche at #CanaryWharf ’s #WinterLights2019 , which opened tonight - lots of interesting stuff there! We were stopped by some security guards asking if we had a permit to take photos - I thought they were making a joke at first but they seemed bemused by my answers; left us alone though and presumably at some point someone briefed them that their bosses were specifically encouraging half the photographers in London to come and take photos!

Lo más curioso de los abandonos es la cantidad de sorpresas que te puedes encontrar. En este caso, la puerta de entrada estaba claramente rodeada de vegetación, y me pareció muy curioso. De ahí esta fotografía. He tratado de resaltar los colores de esa vegetación para provocar mayor impacto, espero que os guste 💪 . . . . #uk_shooters  #london4all  #streets_vision #street_focus_on  #depthobsessed  #moodygram #lensbible  #nightshooters  #citykillerz  #shotzdelight #visitlondon  #visualambassadors  #urbanandstreet #londonist  #cityphotography  #milliondollarvisuals #urbanromantix  #igotlondonskills  #tonekillers #fstoppers  #hq_globe  #thisislondon  #lazyshutters #streetactivity  #toplondonphoto  #mysecretlondon #londonguru  #timeoutlondon  #serialshooters #fatalframes
