Rome, Italy December 2018.
A few weekends ago I spent some time in Yorkshire. On my way home I randomly searched for places to visit on google and found “Malham Cove”.
For a random Sunday afternoon this place was REALLY busy, but then, it was a gorgeous day! I did have plans to hang around till sunset, but finding out that sunset wasn;t until 8 pm and still having 4 hours to drive made me think twice. On my walk back from the cove I managed to get this image.
London is known for its financial district. One of the most
notorious well-known companies to reside here is Lloyds of London. Now without condoning some of their past insurance-based practices, I’d like to present their outstanding building! Completed in 1986 this “Inside out” building houses the majority of its services such as lifts, stairwells and ducting on the outside, allowing for an unencumbered space inside. A similar building exists in Paris called the Pompidou centre housing the Musée National d’Art Moderne. We are hoping to visit Paris Museum of Modern art next week on our Paris trip. As it was a Sunday I was unable to look into the Lloyds building…and I’m not even sure I would have been allowed.
This post also makes up my entry to the weekly post photo challenge with the theme of “Wish“. My wish is that these posts will start to inspire others to pick up their camera, get out there and take some great photos to share with the world!
Taken in London on a solo photo walk. Entered into the Dailypost weekly photo challenge .
Walking around London is a great way to get shake yourself from the creative slump. This image was an after though, I had just finished at the Leadenhall Market when I saw this colossal glass lobby. Standing on the other side of the road I was able to get the whole lobby. The tower it self stands back and rises high above. Be Careful taking images around th city in London that you stay on the public footpaths, or you may be trespassing.
London is full of train stations. It took me years to realise that the colourful building at the other end of the Jubilee bridge over the river was in fact Charing Cross Station. What makes that even more stupid is that I’ve walked over this bridge and into the station many times! I hope you enjoy this long exposure of Charing Cross and the river Thames.
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!
A friend was leaving Melbourne and as a gift my Image of Melbourne from the VCCC was given to her by our old work colleagues. This sparked me to go through some old images and reprocess one or two now that I have developed better skills in Lightroom and Photoshop. This one is of the city of Melbourne from Albert Park, back in 2014.
My last trip to the UK had me back to my roots in the New Forest. Set aside by William the Conquerer, as a hunting ground, this National Park on the south coast of England is home to 4 different species of deer. This guy was quite happy to roam free and flaunt himself in front of us safe in the knowledge the only shooting I’ll be doing is with my Canon 6D!

Just because the Day is dreary, doesn;t mean you can’t capture an Image.
It has been a while since I have taken anything due to starting a new job etc but I HAD to get out and get something. In the end I settled on this simple scene not far from my house. Cambridge (and the UK) is full of little-terraced houses. In the winter they look dreary from the outside, but inside they are warm and cosy…
I never really took much notice of the lamp posts in London, but these ones have fish on the bottom of them! I was thinking of naming this image Carp-ey-Diem but then I may loose followers due to the pun….
Unlike the previous post, This IS London bridge. The oldest bridge in London, this bridge was immortalized in song. I took this photo on the walk back on the fly as I felt the drizzle really added to the atmosphere. In the background you can see The Shard.
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.
