I first shot the St James Park Bandstand (also known as St James Park Bandshell) back in the winter, so I was thrilled to see it again – this time in full summer bloom with glorious sunshine and greenery. It was just stunning.
I love to take photos in different seasons – the difference can be startling. In summer the same spot feels completely different from in winter. When I shot it back in winter it was night. There was snow on the ground the park was deserted – and a little eerie. Not so in summer, with people sitting in the shade of the bandstand as well as strolling through the park. This particular day was very hot and sunny. Both the Bandstand and the park are quite beautiful, an urban oasis in the bustling city.
