Day #3980

Day #3980Title: United Colours
Location: Oxford Street, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Don’t ask why I was in a taxi driving down Oxford Street in London on Black Friday, but needless to say the traffic was slooooow. But it did give me the opportunity to rubberneck out of the window. There was no way I was going to get out and dive into the throng of shoppers though, so this colourful window of Benetton was picture of the day.

Day #3951Title: Dynamic Rhythm
Location: King’s Cross Station, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: In London for a couple of meetings today, I was travelling from one to the other when my plans were slightly disrupted by a diversion of the train I was on from Moorgate to King’s Cross. I didn’t mind too much as I had plenty of time to spare and there are always photos to be made at KGX. I’ve given the roof a Cyanotype treatment here in post production – makes a change from the normal purple colours, and emphasises the structure of the roof a little better.

Day #3936Title: XXXL
Location: Whitecross Place, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I do like the feature windows on the side of this building in Whitecross Place. I had a few minutes to make a picture while I was on my way elsewhere.

Day #3923Title: Reach For The Blue
Location: Fenchurch Street, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I was in London today for an evening event in Fenchurch Street, so I took the opportunity for a little walk around beforehand. I haven’t been this way in a while, so it was interesting to see what all the new architecture looks like. The sun was catching this glass clad office rather nicely.

Day #3862

Posted by Caz on Saturday, 28th July 2018

Day #3862Title: 1(1) 2 3 4 5
Location: Great Portland Street, London
Camera: Apple iPhone 5s / Rear Lens, 29mm f/2.2 equivalent
Notes: As a dyed-in-the-wool morgenmuffel, having to arrive at work in central London by 8am on a Saturday is my idea of hell, but needs must when the bills have to be paid. The alarm went off at 5am, and I crawled out of bed. Thanks to the trains being relatively thin on the ground at that time on a Saturday, I could either arrive 25 minutes early or 10 late. I chose to be early. But at least the walk from Great Portland Street tube to Portland Place was quite and cool at that time. I stopped by the door of No. 115 to make this picture – I liked all the letterboxes at different levels. We have seen a corner of this mosaic floor before, back on Day #1625.

Day #3843Title: On Show Again
Location: Shepherd’s Bush
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I’m delighted to report that some more of my Micropolis models have gone on display in the Community Showcase, this time at the LEGO Brand Retails Store in Westfield at Shepherd’s Bush.  There are some blocks of flats which sit right next to a large, polluting factory!

Day #3815Title: The Damaged Pixel
Location: Euston, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I was in London again today for the monthly London AFOLs LEGO meetup (which I happened to be running, this time on Micropolis). I arrived in plenty of time and had a little bit of extra time spare to have a wander with the camera. This is a reflection of UCH in a building on the opposite side of the Euston Road. When I looked at this image later, I realised that the one black square in the windows looked like a huge damaged pixel in a monitor!

Day #3790

Day #3790Title: Looking Skyward
Location: Tower Hill, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: We went to London today to meet up with some old friends, but had a bit of time to kill, so went for a walk near Tower Hill. This is part of one of the office developments near the Tower of London. It has a huge covered atrium which you can freely walk through (the glass curtain which contains it begins about 10ft up). As soon as you step inside, an over-zealous security guard tells you you can’t take photos. But, one step to the left and it’s fine. What foolishness. Anyway, here’s the rather enigmatic reflections with a plane going overhead at the right moment. It makes a great shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #38 – In Flight.

Day #3777Title: View Towards Vauxhall
Location: Westminster, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: This was the view from the hotel room looking towards Vauxhall. Not that I spent very much time in it – in the room at 6am after my night shift and the alarm went off again at 10am. Argh! Time to get back to work. Anyway, it makes a good shot for 52 Weeks 2018 – Topic 6, Cityscape Panorama.
