Embankment Reflections
Title: Embankment Reflections
Location: Embankment, London
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 50mm EF f/1.4 USM
Notes: After my interesting day in London with friends on my Creative Photography course, I took a walk along the Embankment on my way back to the Underground at Westminster. I liked the reflection in this bus window, parked along the side of the road. I can imagine the view seen by the tourists who might sit inside.

The Little Black Bridge
Title: The Little Black Bridge
Location: Little Baddow Lock, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 50mm EF f/1.4 USM
Notes: This is the footbridge across the canal just downstream of Little Baddow Lock. Its piers have collected lots of flotsam from the recent storms – by the looks of the weather forecast, there will be more to come over the next few days.

Late Night London

This evening Alistair and I went to London to meet friends for a surprise birthday dinner. On the way there we took a walk through the City and along the Thames to make some images of the lights on the bridges. They each have their own character, here are some of the most interesting ones:

I chose a mono picture of Southwark Bridge for my 15th MoNovember shot and dusk at Leadenhall Market for my Day #2146 image.

Fantastic Fireworks

I had a great trip to see the Round Table Fireworks display at Billericay last night. I was very pleased with my pictures this time around, they turned out even better than my last attempt at firework photography in 2011. I was still following my tips for photographing fireworks but I think there wasn’t so much smoke blowing about this year, so it made for better contrast than last time. Here’s a small selection:
