Photographs can haunt you and this is a good example of that. Back in the summer of 2008, I stood in this spot and took one of my favourite night photographs of London. With one flaw. There was a sign in the lower left side of the frame saying “Not safe for public use”. You can see this on my original Trafalgar Square Fountains at Night photograph here. As you can see they’ve now removed this ugly looking sign.
This time I put the camera much lower to make the statue in the foreground stand out more. I’m still not 100% happy with this new photograph. It was cloudy and I didn’t stay out late enough for the sky to get darker. Next time I’m in London and the sky is clear, I will get the version of this photograph that I have a clear picture of in my head.
