London's Calling by AlanSmithers London's Calling by AlanSmithers
Londons Calling

Taken in London this was opposite the houses of parliament just next to Westminster Bridge. I had the idea before I went to London for a black and white photo apart from the red of the telephone box but when I saw the blue next to the photo I felt both colours would make for a more interesting photo.

I love London, it's so photogenic. I agree with you, the blue compliments it very well, and makes a change from the b&w/red contrast often used.
