MI6, The Secret Intelligence Service building, London,England

MI6  

Took this image of MI6, The Secret Intelligence Service building, London,England ,on a recent trip to Tate Britain, which is literally two min walk away. I took my mini tabletop tripod and some filters as i knew i wanted to shoot this location while i was here. The sky on the day was less than interesting and was pretty overcast in general. I took this with the Lee Big Stopper on a twenty second exposure just to smooth out the water really.

Some editind done in lightroom, photoshop and the Nik Silver Efex Pro 2.

Would like to go back a photograph this at sunset , with all the lights on and St George Wharf all illuminated, so will return at some point.

 

Canary Wharf, London

Canary Wharf Today was my day off work, and where was i ?, back on a train to Stratford !

Myself and a mate and fellow photographer Barry Stewart headed up to Canary Wharf area with our camera. We got the Docklands Light Railway from Stratford to Poplar , on arrival it instantly started to rain so we headed off on foot the short distance to Canary Wharf . The weather really ruined the day but we managed to get a couple of images of Canary Wharf Underground Station.

I also got this image of The Cat and Canary, a traditional English Pub

The Cat and the Canary

 

 Today was the first day of the London Tube strike so the underground station was surprisingly deserted. The weather just deteriorated to the point we just decided to head home. Really wish the weather would change for the better getting a little tired of all the wind and rain we having lately, need some real summer weather. 

The Shard

The Pinnacle I had to go to London on Friday as I am taking photographs for a work competition so while I was there I took the opportunity to take this image for myself. I took this from the end of  platform 4 at London Bridge Train Station. On arrival I went to Network Rail office and got their permission to take some images using my tripod. They issued me with a permit and I was good to go. The stunned silence of the security staff was brilliant when they approached me telling me " You need a permit to take pictures" When I produced one they were just stunned it was priceless !

 

This was taken on a tripod with a Lee Big Stopper for just over 60 sec exposure.
