This summer I'm taking part in the new Photography Scavenger Hunt being run by Mary-Lou at Patio Postcards. I rarely start serious hunting before school finishes for the summer (19 July this year) but a business meeting in London earlier this month gave me an opportunity to pick off a couple.
Number 13 on the list is a dome, so that meant St Paul's Cathedral for me. My meeting was in Fitzrovia, I visited a couple of shops in Tottenham Court Road and then headed for Blade Rubber Stamps near the British Museum. My route took me through Bedford Square where I hit gold with a plethora of plaques (no. 21 on the list) on the buildings there. There was at least one more, obscured by scaffolding on a building undergoing renovations:
Moving on via Holborn, and heading towards St Paul's, I spotted an alternative dome atop the Central Criminal Court aka the Old Bailey.
And finally, I hit my target for the day - St Paul's Cathedral - one of the largest domes in the world.
Mission accomplished, but I kept my eyes open as I made my way to my 'home' railway station, and I spotted this building in Cannon Street, perfect for No. 17 on the list - circles or crosses in architecture; I found crosses:
One month gone, and I've found three of twenty-five items. It's a slow start, but we'll be entering the holiday season soon. The hunt runs until 30th September so there's plenty of time for you to join in too; the full list can be found at Patio Postcards.
