The Tower Bridge

You have to get up early to witness this soft, backlit view of London's illustrious icon. Documentary photographer Richard Baker was on the South Bank of the Thames by 6 a.m., when streetlamps are still lit and locals are out jogging and cycling. This frame was made using a tripod and a shutter speed of 1/30 of a second to capture the blurred motion of the biker, and a small aperture (9.5) to allow both the sidewalk and the bridge to remain in focus.
