Watchful Eye

I am a great admirer of street photography, but I have never considered myself very good at it.  Street photography requires a completely different approach and artistic eye than that of a more thought out, carefully composed landscape image.  One must be able to react quickly to capture the right moment or expression, or to […]

London Eye

This trip to London provided my first opportunity to grab a few daytime photos of the London Eye.  The main purpose of the first image is to show it’s scale next to the 6-story County Hall.  The Eye is a massive structure. From the London Eye website: Since opening in March 2000 the EDF Energy […]

Big Ben

I returned yesterday from an October business trip to London.  True to form, I could not resist taking a small(ish) camera kit.  Given it was a short trip – depart Monday, return Friday – I was tempted to leave the gear behind.  The extra bag and weight are terribly inconvenient at times, but I knew […]

I was in somewhat of a rush on the […]

I was happy to find these two.  A friend from my office gave me strict orders to get a photo of a red […]

Paddington Station

I’ve always thought the European trains and train stations are way cool.  They are a great way to commute, and some of the stations have SO much character. I took the London Heathrow Express from Paddington Station to Heathrow airport on my return.  A work colleague and I were in a minor rush, so I […]

London Eye

Recently I had an opportunity to travel to London on business.  It has been several years since I last traveled to the U.K., so it was good to get back.  London is an exciting and vibrant city, full of pedestrians and “buzz”.  I always try to travel with my camera while on business should the […]
