Abstract shopping

I was out doing a shoot yesterday in the Met Quarter when I spotted these cool mirrors in a shoe shop. Kinda fun I thought as I haven’t done anything abstract in some time.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter everyone. This is the first time in about 5 years that I can actually have eggs. I thought that my migraines were caused by chocolate so I gave up. Turns out they weren’t so I now have Easter eggs! This is a close up shot of one of those Easter bunny chocolates, with the bell on.

The Lloyd’s building

I’ve wanted to visit this building for a while now. It’s such a crazy looking building in the middle of London. We walked to the Gherkin and then found this luckily. While it looks monstrous and ugly it makes a great photo. There’s so many crazy angles and abstract bits of architecture to find.

The London Bean

I have no idea what this is, or why its there in London. I can only guess its art, and I like it. I decided to position myself so that the bean obscured Tower Bridge as I wanted the two objects to play off each other. It was a hugely popular bean with kids and adults having their photo taken with it. The London shots have won against the Liverpool shots for now. I had such a good time in London wandering the city as I would Liverpool. There’s so much to see from a non-tourist point of view. Every corner seems to have a photo op, its fantastic. I guess its just because I’ve spent months wandering Liverpool and London is all new to me. For £40 a return ticket on the train, or even £25 if I can get lucky, I’m going to be doing this more often. The weather was technically good, blue skies all day. There was a bit of haze and I hated the fact that there weren’t any clouds for me to HDR. Most of the shots aren’t going to be HDR due to that fact.

I don’t often point out flaws in my images because I don’t like people to spot them, but there is some really annoying banding in the sky thats driving me crazy. If anyone knows how to fix this I’d appreciate it. Its not there until I process the image to B&W. Its not to bad when printed and you don’t really notice it because its not the subject of the shot, but I would prefer it if it wasn’t there.
