My Brother

Have ever I mentioned I have an older brother? (I think I’ve alluded to his IT skills in the past). I say older brother, but there’s only a 1 year and 9 days between us. In fact if it wasn’t for the fact that he’s 6ft 4 with dark hair (well it used to be anyway 😉 a nice tan and blue eyes, and I’m 5ft 5 with red hair (once naturally 😉 freckles and brown eyes, well you’d be forgiven for thinking we were twins…;)

Anyhow, my bruv, is one of those special people. The “nice guy” that doesn’t have a nasty bone in his body. Oh and just happens to be super talented at anything he turns his attention to.  But then I’m biased of course. So I thought I’d see what you thought.  By day he’s something very techy in IT in London. But by night, on the way home, he takes photos like this….

and this…

and this…

I was blown away by these pics. I love them. I’ve always been a bit of a night owl and love the way a city comes “alive” at night in a way that is very distinct from it’s daytime persona. I think these pictures really capture that vibrance.  Now, tell me, is it just me, or is my big brother just a little bit of a clever clogs or what?

    Wow. I’m speechless. I was reading somewhere about light photography, i might be mistaken about the name, or is it flash photography? Those pictures are amazing. i totally get you about the height thing. My younger brother, is about 6ft3, and he is 9 years younger than me.

    Those photos are breathtaking. We stayed in that hotel behind the eye on our honeymoon. He has definitely captured the energy of London at night. Amazing.
