Abstract street scene


Abstract image of a London street with people blurred as they rush by.



I took a shot using a one-second exposure of a street in London. Despite my best efforts at the time, it came out over-exposed, but playing with the image in post-production gave the above interesting effect. I love how everything is distorted, with people anonymised and the buildings given a futuristic tone, leaving this abstract art behind.
