London – the Magnificence and Versatility of the Modern Babylon

“By seeing London, I have seen as much of life as the world can show” – said Samuel Johnson once. Indeed, this modern Babylon or just the City has always attracted, always fascinated, and always surprised people. Being one of the globally-important centers of social, financial, and cultural life, London has many purely distinct features, starting from its legendary weather and double-deckers and finishing with the fantastic mixture of old architectural masterpieces with imposing futuristic buildings of today. Naturally, London has always attracted artists, giving them inspiration, allowing more than enough space to reveal all their talents and even playing the leading role for their art performances. By offering you the following London photographs showcase we are not ambitious to show you the whole London, but we hope to give you the evidences of magnificence and unfading glory of this ancient and, at the same time, super-modern city.

London photographs are like the captures of the moments of this great city’s life – each with its unique and specific beauty, energy, and emotions. Digital photography creates even more opportunities for artists to show the true character of London by increasing the contrast or applying specific graphic effects, like black-and-white or sepia, to the pictures. It is even possible to say that making photographs black-and-white helps to concentrate viewers’ attention at the forms instead of dispersing it for a great variety of shades on the color images. Anyway, every artist chooses his own technique when illustrating the city of London, but the common truth is that London has always been and it will always be the powerful and inexhaustible source of inspiration for creative souls and for those, who value the real art masterpieces.

With 30 years of life experience behind my shoulders, today I find myself focused mainly around two core values: my family (I am a happy husband and a proud father) and IT in its broadest meaning, including but not limited to hardware and software techniques and innovations. My special interest and true passion is photography. Here I am ready to put my signature under each word, once said by Dorothea Lange: “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” Being a part of Cruzine team, I enjoy instant process of learning as well as sharing my own experience in photography and IT with the readers of this digital magazine.
