Architecture of London, England

Posted on 28th July 2012 in architecture

I was in London for about a week, just before the Olympic planning began. Well, I guess I was there just as it was starting, for I started to see things that resembled bleachers, and flags around the city. The city itself was everything I had expected of it. You hear things like “it’s expensive” or “it’s cold” or “it’s rainy” or whatever other experience people have of such a place, but I found that I loved it. Actually, I find it hard to not like any place that I go to.. Even if I were to get mugged and beaten, could I blame the city for that, or blame the guilty party?

It’s always such a hard choice to decide what lens to take with me, in London especially because I would usually travel around with my laptop all day.. I’m splitting this into two posts, one for street photographs, and one for architecture.

Faces of London, England

This is the street edition of my London post. I’ll avoid repeating myself, instead directing you to read the architecture post I’ve done… and say that I actually find it amazing that I could see the stereotypical Englishman, or one that I imagined I would see, be it stereotypical or not. It’s funny how you can just tell they’re local..

I’m finding the best lens for the street is the 50mm, thanks to working with Aspiring Media doing a photowalk in Vancouver’s Chinatown arranged by Kana. However, sometimes it’s just fun to pull out the wide angle and get some huge closeups. Always a tough call I guess, no matter what I’m shooting.
