Let's have another one of the Gherkin...with a red London bus in the foreground...very iconic!:)
One of the reasons we went to London was, that the Ann Leibovitz exhibition - Woman - was on display at Wapping Power station. Was the exhibition worth coming to London for? Yes and no. Her pictures are without a doubt outstanding and inspiring. The presentation....I found it a bit...so so. The prints were relatively small, and the area around the displays was bit crowded. I'd preferred more and bigger prints instead of a slide show.
On Sunday we went for a stroll around the markets in Shoreditch and Whitechapel. One thing that struck me, was the contrast between old and new buildings around the area.
What's left of London? It's all a facade...
Old and new in Shoreditch
Amir, the street trader.
I loved walking around Shoreditch! So many scenes, so many interesting people, I'll definitely go back to Shoreditch one day.
King of the road!
I mostly used my 16-35 wide angle walking around the streets, for me, it's the perfect city walk around lens. One other lens I used was my 35mm 1.8. I mostly use it for street portraits like this one.
That's David, a fellow photographer from London who was also out on the day. And that's it from London. Next stop, Ireland, time for some landscape shots from Connemara.
