Fire

GF1, f1.8, 1/250, ISO 3200, RAW, 100mm (Canon f1.8 50mm FD)

There is some truth in the best camera is the one you have with you and it's always worth having a camera along as you never know what you come across. So happened this evening when I had the trusty, old GF1 with the even older Canon FD 50mm lens along and came across a fire.

Still, even better than having a camera along is to end a grey, cold and rainy Sunday with some great, live jazz music and a bottle of wine.

Another day of having to do some shopping in crowded Oxford Street but now I managed to get everything so it should have been the last time. At least I could also fit taking some photos in between.

It's been a grey and quite cold day but I was glad for it to be Friday. The first time in over a year when I actually did care about the weekday, when you're travelling time and the day of the week just don't matter.

I've been out for a walk during lunchtime again and took some photos around the city.

Went after work to see a band playing at the Barbican for the London Jazz Festival, I took only one photo there and this is my photo for today.

One of the things I dislike most about London is taking the Tube, nothing is more uncomfortable and slower to travel. Still, at times it can't be helped and I find myself taking the tube for a few stops. At least it makes for some nice photos at times so if I'm stuck I might as well take some photos.

Walking Past Street Art

GR, f6.3, 1/320, ISO 400, RAW

Althought it was raining in the morning the sun came out in time for my lunch break so I took the opportunity to go for a walk and take photos around Brick Lane and Shoreditch High Street. This underpass I liked and the light was very nice so I took a few photos around.

It's a strange feeling to be back at work after traveling for such a long time, it felt both familiar and different. Work was actually not even that bad and although it was a long day it didn't feel like it but the commute was pretty bad, there is no worse place in the world than London during rush hour.

Still, in between work, I managed to go out and take some photos although it was only once it got dark.

You will have surely noticed the ads under some posts, although I hate having ads bills need to be paid and unless people start donating something for my blog or until I find a better revenue stream I will leave the ads on. So in the meantime I hope the ads are not too annoying.
