The new British Library is an impressive place. It has as its forecourt a plaza, presided over by the statue of Isaac Newton. Viewed through my camera lens it has a new and surreal look and seems in complete contrast to those of older and greener London Squares.

The British Library Plaza
Its distinctive architectural symmetry and correctness appear in keeping with Newtonian mathematical concepts. In some ways I like the uncluttered ordered image of space and symmetry, a reminder that peace is not only linked to the spiritual or natural elements, but is also gained through knowledge.
