I’ve added 5 more photos to our Photography Shop under the “London” category today.
Three of the photos are from the vantage point of the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square in London on a rainy day. Sight seeing came in second to people watching when these photos were taken. I noticed how many people were going about the the day without taking any notice to the stunning scenery, reflections on the rain-soaked pavement and incredible saturation of color against the grey sky.
Despite seeing many people using umbrellas or covering themselves to they didn’t get wet in the rain, I was happy to take it all in for as long as possible until I got the right shot.
Big Ben & The London Eye
The other 2 photos are from the same are, one across the street form the other: Big Ben/Parliament and The London Eye. Two of the most famous and well known tourist attractions in London.
The photo of Big Ben is a view as seen from Westminster Abbey, through a lush set of trees on a pretty cloudy day. The other was a very timely photo of The London Eye ferris wheel. The sky was incredibly stormy and I would have expected few people to want to go up, but I could see each of the gondolas full of people and a long line of people on the ground waiting to get on. Of course, I headed over afterwards so I could get in line. If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em!
