March 18th, 2012. I joined another London Photo Walk this month, this time to Battersea Park. I have to admit, I didn’t get too many shots I was thrilled with - I wasn’t really feeling very inspired, and it took me a little while to get into any sort of ‘groove’. Towards the end of my walk I came across the Peace Pagoda in the park, and walked around it a bit to try to find something interesting to shoot. I noticed a flower had been placed high up on the top tier, up where the public isn’t meant to climb. Thanks to the handy articulated LCD screen on the back of my Panasonic Lumix 3G I was able to reach up and frame this shot. The colour and saturation have been tweaked rather heavily by my favourite new toy - a Mac app called Camera Bag 2 - and I love the richness of it, and how the centre of the flower echoes the gold colouring of the Buddha.
