The White House

I am in London today for a job interview.

A scary thought, and to be honest, I'm not looking forward to it. Self promotion is not one of my strongest points.

Anyway, I'm staying at a hotel in the Bloomsbury area of the city, not far from the office of where I have to go.

The room that I have doesn't have a great view out of the window. It's all the air con units. But looking out of one of the windows along the corridor, I was stunned to see this amazing Art Deco building, painted in traditional white.

So I went outside and took some shots from street level. Converging angles is always a problem, but in this case, I think it adds to the angular shape of the building.

I love the little details, like the stylised waves over the doorway.
