London South Bank Christmas Fair

London South Bank Christmas Fair

With a day off and a plan in mind i headed up to London to get a few shots i had thought about, most of which were long exposures to make use of my Lee Big Stopper. However, i picked the only day this week that had a clear blue sunny sky!! Not good for what i had in mind.

So with my plans in ruins i walked around London for a while and pretty much ended up along the South Bank as the sun was going down, i must have walked for miles, feeling it now poor old man!

The South Bank was setting up for the Christmas fair which was full of colour and smells from mulled wine and crapes. There was lots to look at and if you have never been before i think its well worth a visit, great place to take the family to get in the festive mood.

I had tried to get a shot of the Lady and the Dolphin fountain near Tower Bridge but as i had my tripod out and was setting up some wireless speedlites i was approached by security and was TOLD i was a PROFESSIONAL ! I said have you seen my work then you may feel a bit different if you had lol ! Anyway no point arguing with them so i was polite, as were they to be fair, i gave up on that idea and made my way across Tower Bridge and strolled along the river back towards the South Bank.

Here are a few more shots i managed to get along the way
