PHOTOS OF LONDON - MY PERSONAL PHOTO MIX FROM PERHAPS THE GREATEST CAPITAL CITY IN THE WORLD
GOOD QUALITY IMAGES FROM LONDON - PEOPLE - LANDMARKS - ARCHITECTURE - PUBLIC ART - PARKS - WILDLIFE
a photos of London web archive in monthly instalments with a short description associated with each photo and year it was taken. PhotosLondon.com displays but a miniscule very narrow view of London. There is so much more this great city has to offer that neither this nor any other photographic website could do full justice. As this is a personal non-professional web, some comments or descriptions about the photos will be a mix of the personal, candid, biased, boring and tongue in cheek. I apologise to the mobile phone users accessing this my photos of London web. Google informs me my site is not moblile friendly. I would rectify this but I'm as adept at HTML or any other web design language basics as I am at living a full and worthy life.
PhotosLondon.com has evolved over the years with a few domain name changes along the way. I began with imagesofbritain.com and this was not a photos only web, indeed photos were a minor part and unlike this web which is a paeon to my narcissism or ego, the imagesofbritain website promoted - albeit badly - the good and the great from British based artists. Sadly I was way out of my depth and both the domain name and the artists deserved far better than I could offer so I let that domain slide and gradually transferred my energy into something more manageable and self promoting.... my images of London. I purchased the domain photos-london.com and for a few years it sufficed until I stumbled across the same name but without the hyphen so I grabbed it and have used it ever since. I am not a pro photographer but do or did enjoy taking photos as I rode and still ride my cycle around London looking for something that will light up my eyes. I say did because my life has changed increasingly dramatically since 2009 but even more so from 2015 onwards. My attendance at the 2009 G20 protest in the city of London to get photos to add to this website may have proved the catalyst for the astonishing and sinister life change. The unknown State(?) sanctioned programme of 'organised stalking and harassment' has made life quite difficult to say the least and I - though I'm not the only one to have been targeted in this way and it appears this is a global problem - have become a non-person. I have been honoured to have some of my more usable or commercial photographic efforts licensed by individuals and businesses in the past but since becoming persona-non-grata it has been necessary to no longer offer any of my images for license and this decision was necessary and possibly permanent. Unfortunately I am way behind schedule and the last set of photos uploaded was back in August 2016 but should I get the peace and stillness required to edit and upload my photos I would like to update the web at some point in time, preferably in this life :)
apologies but the links to my photo web pages are all over the place at the moment and I'm unsure what has gone wrong but I aim to rectify this as soon as possible. Michael (18th June 2017)
