Mother of Pearl


St.Stephens Tower (aka  Elizabeth Tower) clock face, Parliament,UK. Taken in 1988.

I had just bought a second hand 500mm mirror telephoto lens for my camera and thought the clock face would be a suitable image for Tony Stone Images stock library.

The IRA were still bombing the mainland in those days but I was left undisturbed in Parliament Square that evening even though the large lens on my camera mounted on a low tripod was the spitting image of a rocket launcher.

A late Summers evening as the sun picked out the beauty of the clock face.

Taken with a Pentax K1000 camera using a  Tamron SP 500mm lens on 35mm Fujichrome Provia film.
