Little Venice

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!

Rainbow Bridge - Instagram Featured Image

A big thank you to the 'Excellent Structures' architectural group on Instagram for selecting my Rainbow Bridge image as their featured image.  The standard of images in this group is very high so I'm especially pleased to have been selected.

The Rainbow Bridge in Beijing's gorgeous Summer Palace is a highlight of any visit to the Chinese Capital and here's the image from my Places gallery:

 

Here's the link to the Instagram page.

Like all my other Places and London images, the Rainbow Bridge is available as a print and canvass.

Thanks and have a great weekend, Mo

 

Singapore is a Featured Shot on Instagram

I'm really pleased that one of my Singapore images was recently selected as a featured Shot of The Day by one of Instagram's biggest user groups (IGSCCITIES).  The standard of images in this group is fabulous so I'm especially grateful.

The image shows Singapore's skyline at sunset and was taken from the lovely Marina Bay during blue hour - that short period just after sunset when the sky turns wonderful shades of blue.

Here's the Instagram link - I hope you like the image too.

Remember, all my Travel & London images are available as prints and canvasses so please get in touch for more details.

Thanks, Mo
