The Way We See It is a fairly new site which gives a challenge every week – to go out and photograph a nominated London location. I haven’t been able to try it out myself yet as all the locations are in central London, but it looks like fun. Comparing your interpretation of a location, and trying to get that unique shot, are all part of the challenge of photography, and the results do show the difference between the ordinary and the talented photographer.
And if you don’t take part, just seeing pictures and learning about some of the more hidden parts of the city makes for enjoyable browsing. Just the names – Ironmonger Lane, Apothecary Street, Bride Lane, Sicilian Avenue to name a few – should be enough to entice you in.
