There was such beautiful light that day. I love the juxtaposition of the trees and layers of reflections with the structure of the bridge and its fading corrugated roof.

There’s a really eclectic range of photographs in the exhibition, taken with mobile phone cameras all over the world. It’s well worth a look.
