This wide-angled view was made in London, at the junction of Marylebone Road and Baker Street. To get it Chris had to lay flat on his back (whilst hoping that the crowds of hurrying people didn't get to trample on him...).

In fact, as with many images, it took more than one visit to get the shot. In this case it was because the initial attempt was just a little too late and the shutter speed necessary to retain detail of the grime inside the light's globes (important Chris felt!) was too fast to record detail at the other end of the tonal range: in the crevices of the buildings at the junction's corners. Taking it that bit earlier also meant that the second street light hadn't yet come on - on balance a more pleasing effect.
