Weekly Photo Challenge: Dialogue

Slightly different DP photo challenge this week…

‘Dialogue is an engaging conversational exchange. When it comes to photography, dialogue can be perceived as a consensual interaction between two images. Placed next to each other, each photograph opens up to meanings that weren’t there when viewed alone. Each composition reveals the photographer’s specific sensitivity to certain content or visual elements’

Looking through my archives, I’ve found reasonably similar views of London’s ever-altering skyline taken from Tower Bridge four years apart – different cameras, but same photographer. For me they highlight both continuity and change, sameness and difference, then and now, and show the almost invisible ease of everyday evolution within a thriving, thronging city 🙂

Shard-city-hall-2014City Hall, with the Shard in the background, first in 2010, then in 2014

Gherkin-2014The Gherkin (actually 30 St Mary Axe), first in 2010, and now in 2014 dwarfed by the Cheese-grater, and also the new Walkie-Talkie building
