Another trip to Hyde park corner on Sunday. Very busy with glorious weather and the London Marathon being run. Just used my iphone which was really weird as I normally go weighed downed with my Nikon DSLR and Panasonic compact and about 4 different lenses. It was quite a liberating experience but one which needs a lot of practice using all the different apps available and trying to get the effects I want. I also do a lot of post processing so this was a little strange just posting straight out of my phone!! I loved the way you could get in amongst the crowds and no one minded me taking pictures another weird development. I think I will stick with it for a bit as I’m getting quite disillusioned with all the DSLR stuff! I want to get back to enjoying photography and taking pictures that I like…. I’ll keep you posted!!
Another Trip to London.Visited the Natural History Museum and took this image in the new section. Its a stark contrast to the old Victorian building. The second shot was Taken outside the National Portrait Gallery of a street entertainer, I called it Tight Squeeze !!. The third shot was taken just of Shadwell street near the Design Museum, and i was lucky enough to get the runner going through the arch. The forth shot was taken in south east London Underneath a railway bridge leading to the station. I liked the smoke rising from the generator and also managed to get a lady at the top going through the arch! The final shot was taken in St Pauls Cathedral Just as you go in on the left hand side and i loved the way the stairs formed the letter nine and the light coming through the window at the top. You could spend ten lifetimes and never even get to photograph a tenth of this City, there’s always something going on 24 hours a day and I don’t think I will ever tire of her.
Two shots taken outside the Museum of London on the site of the London wall in the city of London. Miserable day lots of rain and overcast skies, ( i love springtime!! ). Quite crowded as it was the last day of the Easter break. Taken on my iphone again using the hipstamatic app. The first picture was taken at the front of the Museum of a group of schoolkids passing by. I love the guy on the right staring straight at me!. the second pic was taken through the window where the Lord Mayors‘s Carriage is, the building is actually number one London Wall. Anyway great place to visit if your in the area, near Smithfields meat market also worth a look or Butcher’s hook for the cockney aficionados amongst you.
