London Street Photography
I’m hoping to blog more regularly with new photography from now on but I’m also going to intersperse that with some older favourite images that perhaps haven’t seen the light of day recently, but are nevertheless favourites of mine. It’s clear that my style and favourites are subjective but that’s the joy of a blog - you get to post off your thoughts into space and if no-one cares that’s fine!
When visiting somewhere I always try to take the opportunity to go for a wander capture some architectural/street images. A couple of recent trips to London allowed for that, allowing me to also stretch the legs on both the Fujifilm X-Pro1 and X-E2 bodies, paired with the standard XF18-55mm lens, purely for lightness and ‘walkroundability’ (I know that’s not a real word). London is, of course, always an exciting place for any photographer and the clash of old and new is always evident, especially in the architecture. As I recall I walked a circuitous route mainly from the river up towards King’s Cross/St. Pancras, but also separately went to the Barbican, capturing some well known locations and some less so.
