Managed a two day trip down to London, great chance to take some architectural shots. Started at Heals department store for the stunning spiral staircase and lighting, also a look around at the stunning contemporary furniture, very tempted, but already had some heavy camera equipment to carry miles around London.
Next stop is my favorite British Museum and the stunning Great Court, plenty of picture opportunities.
Weather turned a bit cloudy, not great for photography outside but did suit some mono shots. Including Lloyds of London.
And even managed to take some pictures near to City Hall with security standing next to me without being moved on! Have they relaxed a bit with photographers? I've previously been sent away before by refuse collectors.
Great little museum, the old operating theater, which is a stones throw from the Sage. Used before 1822 to operate on women with stalls to allow the young student doctors to watch and no anesthetics. Glad we have the NHS now.
A short tube ride to Southwark station, some great art deco design, very Metropolis.
Final place to visit was Tate Britain, which I hadn't visited for a very long time, and now one of my new favorite galleries, architecture is stunning, and a great relaxed atmosphere allowing photographers in the galleries. i recommend a visit.
Overall a great couple of days, possibly not the most original photos of London as these places are well photographed, but very enjoyable.
