Leadenhall Market – Diagon Alley

Diagon Alley

Taking advantage of cheap train tickets, I spent Sunday in London.  Wandering the streets of the City of London I initially walked past Leadenhall Market and just couldn’t see the image.  On my way back round about an hour later I decided to suck it and see.  Using a polariser and a 10 Stop filter this was the image I managed to capture:

Whilst I was here I met two other photogs.  There is something nice about meeting others from the community and exchanging stories and places to visit.  One guy showed me his homemade Lens baby.  I think I have a project I need to start!

City Hall – London

GLA City Hall

City Hall in London.  This is where the London Mayor has his office (now Sadiq Khan).  Apparently, Ken Livingston called it the Glass testicle and Boris Johnson used to call it the Glass Gonad.  What do you think?

This one was taken with my 10 Stop Zomei filter.  A 17-minute exposure (ISO 50, f/9.0) to erase the tourists.  This is the first time I’ve used it, I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.
