Heron Tower
I had a bit of a wander in the City, photographing buildings. Took me a while to figure out what building this is, too new for street view.

East India DLR View Again
I visit East India DLR every so often en route for work and always feel compelled to photograph this view. This time the combination of a hazy day and Fuji Neopan 400 has resulted in a 40s New York kind of feel.

Cyanotype Experiment - UV LEDs
I tried an experiment to see if UV LEDs would work to expose cyanotype sensitised paper, turns out they do. I used three puny standard LEDs, first within a centimeter of the paper to make sure something happened, after about five minutes they had left some good amber splodges. Then I set it up like this with the LEDs about 30cms from the paper and part of a floppy drive motor (probably) to leave an interesting pattern, left for about an hour. See the next picture for the result. I’ll be getting hold of a 10W UV LED soon. This should make unreliable sunny days much less of a problem.
