A couple of iPhone images from a stroll by the Thames.
It’s been a a couple of months since I last walked in London and for the first time I took two cameras, the heavy Pentax DSLR with a telephoto lens, and my wonderful little Sony RX100. I only used one of the Pentax pictures so I don’t think I’ll be in a hurry to take it out again.The water in the Thames was really low – see the first b & w image, and alongside HMS Belfast there was a liner, Ocean Majesty. As often happens, I was asked by a tourist to take their photo.
A rare night-time visit to London gave me the opportunity to take some night pictures. I didn’t feel my little camera was up to the job. It had difficulty automatically focusing and I had to resort to manual focusing, which is not easy. I’m not too enamoured with the results, but there you go, and the evening with friends made up for it.
[Update: On further consideration, I’m more than happy with the pics!]
The Thames was so low this morning one could almost imagine a pebble beach!
On a glorious day, I saw some large bubbles, hundreds of selfies being taken, the magnificent Shard, swings in the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern, the wobbly bridge, lots of school parties, and I said yes to an “Excuse me sir, could you please take my picture with my phone?”
Not much sign of ‘art’ in the Tate Modern Turbine Hall.
