I have just received the periodic email from Somerset House, which lists the things they have on each month and they are featuring an exhibition of photos of London taken by one Richard Bryant, a noted photographer.

Apart from the exhibition though, there is also a competition for the best photos of London taken by amateurs.

The fluff about the exhibition reads thus:

Richard Bryant is one of Britain’s leading architectural photographers, and in this new exhibition he presents his personal account of London. Picking out views, spaces and architectural detail, the combination of world-famous buildings and little known secrets forces the viewer to reassess what they know about the city.

The competition though – that is being run via the ubiquitous Flickr website.

Richard Bryant will judge the entries himself and he’ll take the winners on a personal guided tour of his exhibition, offering advice on how to take great urban photographs. His favourite photos will also be featured in a winners gallery on the Somerset House website.

The prize is fame and glory!

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    My friend is studying photography at Swansea university and I mentioned to him there is a competition on London underground. I heard this on the radio and spoke to him as he has hundreds of London underground photos as he is using this for his final piece. If you know of this or if he could use this within this competetion I would be very greatful for a reply. Or you can contact him on 07940 932233 his name is Owen Goodwin.

    Many Thanks
