Keep walking until your camera batteries die! - London photography

19th September 2015
I woke up full of energy on Saturday morning and I decided was going to have one of those spontaneous photo walks where you just pack ALL your camera(s), zoom lenses, prime lens, tons of batteries and memory cards into your bag and just set off after breakfast. The sun was out, I had my headphones on, I was ready to go..

I hadn't been to Golborn Road/Portobello Road Market for ages, and being a local haunt, this is where my adventure began....after weaving up and down the many colourful side roads of Notting Hill Gate and exploring the market from head to toe, my work around here was done.



Next stop was unplanned... just got on at Notting Hill Gate tube and took the Central Line to Chancery Lane... wasn't really much going on here, so walked down to Holborn area and popped into the British Museum briefly as hadn't been in there for ages. Always love the light on a sunny day.



Took a shortcut over to Covent Garden. Mega busy as expected, I hadn't had time to see the new art 100,000 white balloons installation by French artist Charles P├ętillon properly, so dropped by.



Next stop... Westminster via a walk over to Trafalgar Square and down Whitehall. Enroute I visited Horse Guard Parade. I hadn't been there for years. Amusing seeing the number of tourists queuing up to take selfies with the on guard trooper, who then walks off when he is scheduled to do so. The batteries on my Sony RX100 ran out, so was time to switch to my Panasonic Lumix camera.



Got to Westminster and milled around a bit, then headed across the Westminster Bridge down to Southbank/Waterloo area and hung around until the light started to dip.



Got a few shots of the dusk skyline including Big Ben, the London Eye and the Wonderground and then I decided to call it a day and head home with a bag of dead batteries and a memory card or two full of images :)
