Adrian Prockter has been taking pictures of London since the early 1960s. The early pictures were taken as colour 35mm slides. Sometimes black-and-white 35mm slides were also taken since they produced images that were more permanent than colour.
In 1996 digital photography had become good enough to use for recording images of London. The early cameras only took images that were 1024 x 768 pixels whereas today’s digital cameras take images that are in excess of 4000 x 3000 pixels with greatly improved colour rendering.
As has been said many times ‘every picture tells a story’ and ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’. Both statements continue to be true. No matter how eloquent the description, a picture can convey so much more of how the scene really was and of detail that is often quite hard to describe.
This Website is less about descriptions with long explanations and more about the pictures. Each blog is added to present a visual image that will tell its own story, with just a few words of explanation underneath.
