London is one of my favorite cities in the world, albeit that it rains a lot there. Or should I say, ‘used to rain a lot?’ Recent news has connected ongoing climate change in England to a drastic decline of rain, which may have a serious long term impact on the capital’s groundwater supply. Gavin Hammond, who’s unique and gloomy lomo photography we have featured before, has made it his mission to give the ‘rainy London as it used to be’ a moment in the sun. He has come up with a fantastic set of photos that shows many of the famous London spots in the reflection of puddles. It’s not only a great idea, the execution is fantastic, too.
One of the most pronounced political topics in the past few months has been the economic crisis, and with it, the rising of a new capitalist criticism movement. A photo that highlights the subject perfectly is this shot taken by Gavin Hammond, a lomo photographer from London.
