Tower Bridge

London’s famous Tower Bridge is often mistaken for London Bridge.  Constructed in the late 1800s it is still used as a major road to connect Tower Hamlets in the north to Southwark in the south.  A London icon, this bridge is famous throughout the world! A long exposure of about 1.5 minutes.

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.

Tower Bridge – From the river

London Tower bridge

Today we took the river bus to Greenwich and we passed under Tower Bridge.  I had never seen it from the river before and had only previously been able to get photos from the side.  The river bus costs more to get around than the underground…but it is totally worth it for views like this!
