Day #2906Title: Winter Commute
Location: Westminster, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: The downside of Winter is a commute home in the dark. It’s even worse when it’s also raining. Bah! Humbug!

Day #2887Title: Palmer Street Pedestrians
Location: St James’s Park, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: This was one of the first images I made as I stepped out of the Tube station at St. James’s Park in London. The guy on the wall was blissfully oblivious to my approach – I waited for the lady to step into the right part of the frame to give a bit of balance. In their own way, they were both engrossed in their own tiny mobile phone worlds.

Day #2863

Day #2863Title: Wilmington Square
Location: Clerkenwell, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I enjoyed a fantastic day in London today, walking over 10 miles in the pursuit of some street photography. I roamed from St. Paul’s and Aldwych to Islington and back to Liverpool Street. The day started off quite foggy and the atmospherics persisted in some places all day. Mid-afternoon, I found myself in the delightful Wilmington Square, surrounded by imposing Georgian town-houses. It is not far from Royal Mail’s Mount Pleasant sorting office (once one of the largest in the world). I guess one of the Posties was on his break, as he was sitting relaxing quietly in the middle of the square, reading his paper. As I approached, the mist and sunlight contrived to make some marvellous rays surrounding the bandstand. A perfect shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #43 – Relaxed.

Day #2859

Day #2859Title: Ramp Or Stairs?
Location: Barbican Centre, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 7-14mm f/4 Lumix G Vario
Notes: Today I had a couple of meetings in London to attend, but had some time in between to have a bit of a photowalk. This was inside the Barbican Centre. There’s always loads of interesting corridors and corners to explore in the place. I liked the contrasting lighting schemes here. Which way would you choose, ramp or stairs? Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #20 – Choices.

Day #2825

Day #2825Title: High Five
Location: Broadgate Circle, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 7-14mm f/4 Lumix G Vario
Notes: I went to London today to attend the two-day Over The Air conference in Hoxton. On the way I passed through some of the new developments near Liverpool Street Station – I loved how the light was reflecting off this shiny metal wall, and the size of the number dwarfed the guy standing next to it, providing a curious visual tension to the image. So a good shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #47 – Tension.

Day #2817Title: New Patients Not Welcome
Location: Wicklow Street, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes: I went to London today to meet up with a friend who was speaking at an evening tech event. We had some time to kill beforehand so we went for a wander around. This is the back of one of the Hospitals near King’s Cross – obviously new patients are no longer welcome, since their dedicated entrance has been bricked up!

Day #2814Title: Rainy Day In Queen Square
Location: Bloomsbury, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes: I had to go to London today to pick up some darkroom chemicals from West End Cameras on Tottenham Court Road. The folks in there were very friendly and knowledgeable, and were a great help. The place is a shrine to all things old school – they had a whole wall full of film to choose from! I had some time to kill so I decided to walk from Liverpool Street to TCR and back – in the end I did about 9.5 miles, half of them lugging nearly 4Kg of liquid around with me! I also found a few geocaches along my route. One was in Queen Square, a fine Georgian location with lovely wrought iron railings and historic architecture. It was raining at the time, but I still made the most of any photographic opportunities.
