Church of Christ the King – 6 Metres Above the Ground Panorama

Taking images from above the ground adds a slightly different perspective to panoramas. Using a D80 with a 10.5mm lens the image to the right is a test shot taken 6 metres above the ground.

Within the scene are the three Grade II listed buildings the phoneboxes set against the backdrop of the Church of Christ the King in Bloomsbury.

The Red Phonebox is a classic design by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott who amoungest other notable buildings also designed Battersea Power Station. The K6 “Jubilee” model pictured here was built to commemorate the Silver Jubilee of King George V in 1935.
