I’ve been on-call at work this past week. Normally that ends on Friday at noon; however, I am covering my colleague until Sunday at noon. And a lot of stuff has been breaking at work…after hours…
Ah well. It’s what I signed up for. At least I was able to finish the London skyline Lego model!
The main features are obviously the Tower Bridge and The London Eye ferris wheel. But the National Gallery and Nelson’s Column are there, nestled behind and beside the Elizabeth Tower – aka “Big Ben” which is actually the name of the main bell in the tower.
The London Eye isn’t quite a nice circle. The plastic tubing frame doesn’t play nicely with physics!
I used a shallow depth-of-field again; the 50mm prime lens at f/2.5. There was some minor straightening with Camera Raw and then I used Topaz Clarity for some final sharpening adjustments.
So the Chicago Skyline remains. That looks to be a fairly simple model to build. I’ll probably buy the Buckingham Palace and U.S. Capitol models soon as a birthday present to myself.
Now if the on-call system stays quiet for the next 24 hours…
