Back in October 2017, I was at the top of Westminster Cathedral. I was also there in even further back, January 2016, when I photoed this photo, of Nova, while it was under construction:
I had photoed Nova quite a few times before then, and have photoed it many times since, especially since they awarded it the Carbuncle Cup. This being a fairly typical example of the genre:
What do you reckon on this photo?:
Photoed by me later on the very same day, in August 2016. Not good? Well, I was about fifteen miles away, so I reckon it’s not bad either.
I mean, here’s the place I was photoing from:
That stuff in between and above the trees is … central London. Nova is to be seen in among that, if you have a zoom lens. What you see there is a walk up from Epsom Race Course.
But you’re right, we probably need something in between close-up and too far. Like this:
That was photoed just before I came across these silly signs. From the same direction, but a bit nearer.
I like Nova. Not least because it adds a dash of colour to the London Skyline. Not many Big Things do that.
