Bought a manual focus Samyang 135mm f2 just before I left and was planning a little more street-esque photography (read: trying to be a hipster). Took it out for a full day and it was quite a challenge. Colours are a bit flat because it was overcast, and I’ve been lazy to process these too much.
I loved looking through a different perspective but it was really tight (ha!) and secondly it soon became very easy to get the same looking shots, especially of clock towers and tops of older buildings.
Westminster light posts (for the longest while I thought it Westminister)
Picadilly Circus – had to look up why it’s called a circus, no not the one with clowns. Circus refers to a round space at a road junction.
A bit of symmetry:
At night there’s a bunch of super bright electronic screens/billboards that light up the entire circus. Also, these screens are mega sharp with a heap of detail!
and the Big Ben, unfortunately the it’s under renovations for 2 years (and won’t even toll!).
Covent garden has a nice but small market, there were these cute wallets with dogs on them, but a fuck you to the lady at the stall. I was considerate enough to ask you for a photo first, as per your sign, and you asked me what I’m doing with it and that I better not copy the product; I’ve intentionally cut out the card with your store details.
Need to come back here as they’ve set up a Christmas tree and some lights.
