Hi there blog readers,
Last night was a fantastic night and not one I'll forget in a hurry.
A huddle of fellow photographers whom I have come to know via G+ met up with me in London with a view to us shooting some street photography and architecture throughout the night.
We assembled down at the Tunnels at the back of London Waterloo station, and from there took to the Thames Embankment before scouring the streets of the City hunting down some prime street photography.
In conclusion, I can only say that London really is a City that never sleeps. The main thoroughfares such as around Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square, Regent Street and Oxford Street were as busy at 4am than the main shopping mall in my current home town of Reading on a Saturday morning! It was a hive of activity with people from anywhere and everywhere just out and about having a great time. The streets were buzzing with chatter, noise and jollity!
Thankfully, the rain held off and we kept dry, albeit a tad chilly as the small hours of the morning drew in. Tired, and with aching backs and feet, we all started to disperse from our final point at Marble Arch at around 4:30am to make our respective ways home. It was a great night and I'm really pleased with some of the shots that came from the shoot - so much that I will be making some of them available for sale on the website - so watch this space! Meanwhile, I've shared a couple of thumbnails from the first pass of editing done today.
If you're into photography, why not try going to your usual favourite spots for shooting, but at a different time of the day. Its amazing how different the vibe to the area is compared to your usual daytime location shoot! Remember to stay safe, though, and always have your personal safety in mind especially when doing night shooting.
