New Age Tech in Bygone London Flat, by Jocelyn Walker

Jocelyn Walker is a former resident of South Africa who now lives in Australia, but last year she ventured north of the Equator to visit the UK. I love this picture for a number of reasons; the contradiction of the man using a laptop surrounded by early 20th century, and rather weathered, architecture, is well seen by Jocelyn. I also like the tonality of the shot, which almost looks drab all around the man, while he looks well illuminated. It's as if the ageing surrounds are struggling to keep up with the man and it information technology. And this is a very good result from Jocelyn's Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30 bridge camera.
