Albert Hall

Albert Hall. A photo of the wonderful Royal Albert Hall, in London, seems appropriate as we reach the end of the 2007 Proms season. Actually taken in June 2006, towards the end on a perfect Summer's day, from the steps of the Albert Memorial on the other side of Kensington Gore, while waiting for the start of a recital by the renowned organist Simon Preston on the huge and recently restored RAH organ.

The evening sun has really brought out the colour in the red brick of the Hall and the surrounding buildings. But the lucky moment, of course, was when the two tourists obligingly paused to admire the building. Lucky too that she has a red bag! A widish lens (30mm equivalent on full frame) has made the tourists prominent in the foreground.
