Day #2552

Day #2552Title: The Peace Pagoda
Location: Battersea Park, London
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 18-135mm EF-S f3.5-5.6 IS STM
Notes: We needed a walk today to blow away some Christmas cobwebs and decided on a wander around Battersea Park. It’s not somewhere I’ve been before, being in an awkward part of London from where I am normally passing through. It was a cold and crisp day but we enjoyed seeing various dogs taking their owners for walks, kids trying out their new bicycles, a cuppa in the Italian Café and the tranquillity of the Peace Pagoda by the River Thames. This is a detail from one of the four niches around the pagoda.

Day #2534Title: Peeping Through
Location: Millbank, London
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 50mm EF f/1.4 USM
Notes: The view from the 6th floor smokers’ balcony in the building where I’m working on Mondays. The tower of Parliament and the London Eye look rather fine in the late afternoon sunlight, it’s just a pity about that nasty pillar with pigeon spikes in the way!

Day #2521Title: A Taste Of Japan
Location: Kyoto Garden, Holland Park, London
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 18-135mm EF-S f3.5-5.6 IS STM
Notes: The Kyoto Garden in Holland Park is always worth a visit. I had a bit of time this afternoon before a meeting and made the most of a quick walk around the gardens before the rain started. The peacocks were much in evidence, as usual.

Day #2513Title: His ‘n’ Hers Royal Crests
Location: Westminster Bridge, London
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 18-135mm EF-S f3.5-5.6 IS STM
Notes: These two Royal crests are on the middle of Westminster Bridge. I wondered what they were, so did a bit of research and found out they are from Queen Victoria and Prince Albert‘s Coats of Arms. The bridge was rebuilt in 1862, which now makes it the oldest road bridge across the Thames in central London.

Day #2478

Day #2478Title: Anything But
Location: Regent Street, London
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 40mm EF f/2.8 STM
Notes: I endured a miserable, wet day in London today. I had to visit for a meeting this morning and after lunch I treated myself to a look around the Sebastião Salgado exhibition at Beetles+Huxley in Piccadilly. I first saw Salgado’s Workers exhibition at the RPS in 1995 when I received my LRPS award, and have been a great fan of his mono work, but it’s the first time I’ve seen real prints hanging on a wall since then. This little ironic scene caught my eye as I was squelching down Regent Street on my way to the gallery.
