Walking the Streets of London

Walking the Streets of London

I love London and this particular trip there was no different. I went the by my self for two days. I was actually on my way to Malta and a few other Countries but I had to stop in this incredible city. It was really cold and rainy the entire time I was there. Even though the conditions were not the best to shoot, I still made it happen.

I have learned that sometimes you have to work with the weather and really challenge your self to take interesting photos. In this particular case I had to work with lots of rain and beautiful clouds. I quickly realized that long exposures were on my side.

I shot most of these long exposures in bulb mode and some where over 2 minutes in length. Overall I really like the results. These are my favorites from that particular trip. You can see them on my Shop Gallery on this link.

Big Ben b&w or color?

Big Ben b&w or color?

The Palace of Westminster after a bit of rain and a nice cup of coffee. Form my last trip to London a few months back. Aka Big Ben. It was a cold wet rainy day and it just kept getting worse as the day went by. But I kept shooting until I count walk anymore from fatigue.

After doing some retouching I couldn’t decide what photo I liked better, so here are both, color and black and white. What one do you like better?
