One Lime Street – London, England

The iconic Lloyd’s of London building has been photographed so many ways at such varied angles that getting a unique view is near on impossible. Including this one. I would have liked the external lifts to have some motion blur, but taking this on a Sunday, that wasn’t going to happen

Tower Bridge & The Shard – London, England

For architecture photography, they say you should use a Tilt Shift lens. So I bought one and it arrived today. These are taken with the “Canon TS-E 24mm F3.5L II”.

Staircase III by Do Ho Suh at the Tate Modern in London

A red staircase floats high up in a gallery space at the Tate Modern in London.

It has recently undergone a cleaning and refurbishment of its façade to remove all the grime and muck that has settled on its exterior, from the heavy London Traffic. Here is a brief introduction from wikipedia: St Paul’s […]

Erasmusbrug, Rotterdam | City Photography

I’m a fan of bridges, especially the large modern types. I would have loved to spend more time exploring the locations around this bridge looking for the right location that will show off the beauty. This was a flying visi, I took what I could and had to be happy with it. Sometimes that is […]

London, England | City Photography

London, the capital city of England. What more can one say. The architecture around London has a very diverse mix and is very difficult to attribute them to any one style. There aren’t that many that pre-date the Great Fire of London (circa 1666). The landmarks around London are, dare I say, world famous. Even […]

Paris, France | City Photography

The history of Paris from pre-BC to the modern era has seen it go through many styles of architecture. Spend a few days exploring the city by foot and you may just scratch the surface. It’s infectious with its sights and sounds and if you try the local food then make sure you walk a […]
