Note: Some people have raised questions about the authenticity of the image. Let me clarify. This image is not a fake. I was commissioned by PSC to take this image when it was projected by a professional team, Bluman Associates shortly after midnight 1/8/14. I shot a long exposure, with tripod, f8, from the pavement down the beam of the projector, as advised by the team. This does, it seem create an optical oddity. The nearer you are to the projection beam, the truer the image, i.e. less fall-off around the building. It’s physics. The Report Digital video is here, shot from a bit further up Westminster Bridge by video journalist Jason Parkinson.

A previous image projected by the same team also shows the anomaly but from a less pronounced angle in a photograph by Andy Aitchison  for Public and Commercial Services Union.
