Been a While

Architecture, Black and White, England, Historic, London, Monochrome

As is usual for me I get away from blogging about my photography and photography altogether. I have not been shooting much this year. I have shot some but not much and nothing that has thrilled me enough for sharing. Maybe I can get back into this game.

I got a new (used) lens at the weekend to take pictures at a Christening. It preformed very well at the Christening and I am now thinking of testing it out on the streets.

Thought I would just do a little post here today with a couple of shots from September 2016. Taken in London.

21 Days Later

Architecture, Black and White, England, Historic, London, Monochrome, Photography

It has been 21 days since my last post. No reason other than being busy. Photography wise I was busy preparing for and then attending and taking pictures at a family wedding. Which I would love to say was a huge success but alas it was not. Oh don’t get me wrong there are some ‘nice’ photos. Just not what I was hoping to deliver. I am still in the processing stage with them. Hoping to get those finished up this week. I am planning on writing a post about shooting a wedding and why it is really not for me so watch this space.

On another photography note. I have dug out my husbands old 35mm Minolta camera and I have got some old rolls of Kodak film which I loaded one into the camera and shot a roll of 12 exp. around home to get the feel for the old girl. Today I shall load it with a roll of 24 exp. and head out tomorrow and do some shooting. The results of this trial and error of film shooting will also be a future blog post. Of course this will be after I send them off for processing since I have no idea nor equipment to do them myself. Probably why I love digital shooting so much.

For now I am going to share some shots that have been waiting in the wings so to speak for the last 3 weeks. These were shot during my day wondering the streets of London.

Looking Down

I see so many wonderful images of stairs, either looking up or down. This is the best I could do. Shot inside Dr Johnson’s House. When I come across more stairs I shall try again.

Lincoln Inn building

I loved wondering around Lincoln’s Inn. I could really live here as it is such a beautiful place.

Windows

Beautiful architecture and of course windows are another favourite subject to find and shoot.
