I have recently started a new job in London, it has added a whole set of new photographic opportunities to my world! I am resisting the temptation to turn into an angry harassed looking commuter and I am using the commute as a time to take photos from angles you don’t normally see! After all, the strange looks you get when taking photos through the train window at prime commuter time is enough to put most people off!!
Not me though, so without further ado, I present the first installment of my Days in London photos…
(these were all taken through the train somewhere around London bridge, using my iPhone)
In this time of weirdness and lack of travel, I have taken the opportunity to start going through my photos from previous years. You know the ones that get taken then sidelined when real life gets in the way for a while… we all have them!
Now I have started on the ones I took while I was out in our little red camper van in Ireland on the first leg of the Wild Atlantic Way. I did attempt some landscapes while I was there, the scenery was so spectacular I had to… but as we know they are not my strongest suit so there are a fair few alternative photos mixed in.
The ones I am going to show you here are from the first few days of the trip. There will, undoubtedly, be more to come.
This past summer has been a strange one! The countrywide lockdown and continuing global pandemic, has meant that straying too far from home has been at best frowned upon and at worst, illegal.
The advantage to this is that I have taken the opportunity to photograph some places that are less than 1hr from home. You have seen some of the results of this already in my lensball efforts and my obsessive photographing of beach huts, but believe it or not, there is more on the south coast than beach huts…
For example, there is a fair bit of sea, and these amazing shelters and some fairly spectacular sunsets!
I love the art deco style of these! There are others which are more ornate, but these are by far my favourite!
Lastly, along with beach huts and shelters, the south coast this past year has been host to some fairly impressive sunsets, which may or may not feature beach huts…
