A third of the mansions on the most expensive stretch of London’s “Billionaires Row” are standing empty, including several huge houses that have fallen into ruin after standing almost completely vacant for a quarter of a century.
During October I spent 8 days cycling 200 miles around London whilst carrying 22kg of camera gear. That week consisted of 3 main tasks. Lots of shooting, transferring photos onto the laptop, and a little bit of sleep. By the end of it I was physically drained – to the point where I thought I’d collapse on the final cycle back. Thankfully I didn’t and managed to make it back in one piece. The raw result was 18,000 photos spanning 364 GB of harddrive space. Cue a few weeks of editing, and I managed to produce the final video.
Can’t we all just agree that London is the best city on Earth?
Thanks to London’s rising skyline, high-altitude dining is the city’s latest trend. In the last few months three new restaurants – Oblix, Aqua Shard and Hutong – have opened in The Shard, the 72-storey skyscraper near London Bridge, providing impressive new ways to experience sky-high dining.
The shot of Isle of Dogs is simply stunning. These photos, amongst others, are available for purchase on Jason Hawke’s website.
