Whenever I travel, I try to capture moments and places that cannot be found on postcards or the usual travel guide books. So when I’ve travelled to London in May, I tried to fall back to my ‘photography habits’. Even if you’ve never been to London, you’d probably know what the Buckingham Palace or Big Ben look like. I see no point in taking photos that could be replaced by any postcard out there. Sure, taking as selfie is a nice alternative, but lets be honest, I don’t need to see my face on all of my travel photos.
Over the years, I developed the habit of trying to capture what’s above me and what’s below me. Sometimes, those things that capture your imagination are those that tend to be overlooked. I’m by no means a photography expert, nor is my ‘equipment’ noteworthy. Currently, I’m using my six year old Sony Cybershot DSC-W110. There are better camera out there, but mine does the job and it is easy for me to carry it with me everywhere. However, I plan on upgrading my camera for my next long-term travels in the, hopefully, not too distant future.
In the mean-time, here are some of my London shots.
