One of my photographic aims in 2016 is to get off the beaten track more and explore London's many interesting and out-of-the-way areas. It's always great to find an unexpected and gorgeous view and of course, it's always fun to explore - even in places you think you know well.
So, I started with a real hidden delight near the city centre - Little Venice.
Sandwiched between Paddington Station and Edgware Road, the canal is lined with houseboats and lovely little floating coffee shops and restaurants and I'd definitely recommend going there for a pleasant walk.
I was lucky with the weather during my brief visit and also the water was relatively calm. More to the point, having only visited briefly once many years ago, Little Venice was even prettier than I remembered it to be.
Taking this image was more about the framing and composition. Technically, it was relatively straightforward as it was a lovely, bright morning so there was no need for any camera trickery.
i always want a new aim for my photography and I'm really looking forward to exploring more out-of-the-way places in London, especially with Spring not far away.
Thanks for reading!
