Something unexpected in London

The call for entries went out at work: “Calling all San Francisco site photographers! How would you like to see your work on display in Town Hall as part of an employee photo exhibit? At the end of the month, the SF Site Council will be swapping out the artwork currently on display in Town Hall, and we’ve decided to showcase the amazing talent that exists in-house. Selected images will be enlarged and mounted up to 30×40. After the exhibit runs its course, photographers will get to keep the enlargement!”

I couldn’t resist, so I combed through my digital library and found eight that I felt pretty happy with. Actually only about five really good ones. Can’t believe that out of 300 submissions mine was one of 30 (?) selected. Now the only question I have is where will I find room for a 30×40 print of this photo after the show ends?

The photo shows a peculiar scene outside the Saatchi Gallery in London while walking towards the London Eye on New Year’s Day, 2008.

Here’s more of that Eye:
