The Most Londony Film Ever



Considering that walking around certain parts of London in the rain is the single most depressing thing you can do in the world apart from visiting Dover, it scrubs up well in photographs and on film (although my heart sinks whenever Hollywood shows the city as being some kind of quirky village; check out ‘Night At The Museum 3’).

It took forty photographers taking over 35,000 still images in eight locations shot over 40 hours, all within the same day to create this montage for LapseLondon. And it’s worth playing on those miserable days when the city fights you and you feel like leaving it…

    Thank you for that Admin. It’s made me smile this Monday morning! Not many things do that.

  2. Anna says:

    Thanks! This nostalgic ex-Londoner has prickly eyes now.

    I think Poole on a rainy Sunday night beats both London and Dover; the 3 letter National Rail code is all you need to know.

  4. Brian Evans says:

    Dover is paradise compared with Mablethorpe

  5. Helen Martin says:

    Depressing is inside you, not inherent in the scenery. Yadda, yadda, yadda. Good thing I covered my head with a raincoat – the tomatoes will clean up fine.

    This is driving me mad. I either get one still panorama or, if I keep pressing the start button, a madcap jumping shuffle of stills. Perhaps I am underpowered or sending out negatinpve, jamming vibes.

  7. Vivienne says:

    And can no longer spell!

  8. Vivienne says:

    It worked that time! I’m happy now.

    I live near the Pacific ocean. When I visited London everything was new to me, and everything was simply glorious. If Londoners could see their city through my eyes, they would be enthralled.
