Ghost Town….

During this weekend me and fellow Instagrammers @Yokace and @Ruhul_221 thought we would check out London city on a weekend.

We expected it to be quiet, but we didnt expect it to be totally dead quiet!… Literally only saw about a hand full of people wondering the streets of Bank, St Pauls and Liverpool Street. It was a perfect opportunity to take photos of London without the rush of the working people!

Below are a few shots taken from the day…..

Took on my canon 600d SLR, and edited all on apps from my ipad!

@H_cato

Londons finest, bubbly, enthusiastic and a great person in every aspect!….these are just a few word to describe Holly! Your not truly a London grammer if you ain’t met or heard of this person yet!

I love Hollys profile in general, her vision with a shot and her ‘thinking out the box approach’.

The interaction she has not only with me, but everyone on Instagram is second to none!

Instagram Feature…

So while I was at the gym working out yesterday, my phone suddenly went crazy with notifications!!!

Reasons being that my photo for the WHPlightsatnight hashtag project by Instagram was chosen as a winner!!!

This made me drop the weights from my hands, and my workout at the gym was short lived…..lol

This totally made my day!!

Instagram : Female Talent To Follow (part 1)

This is Part 1 of the wonderful female talent that I have come across on Instagram, and definitely worth a follow.

There are soo many to choose from and I have to admit that this was alot harder than I thought.


 

@GeeRhee

Gini is a superb photographer that captures London in a unique way just with the power of an iphone.

I love the way Gini takes her portrait shots, there’s always a different element in those shots that sets them all apart from each other.

@MissUnderground

Well…. I would like to introduce you if you haven’t been introduced to this epic profile of MissUnderground.

I practically live in the underground taking the trains to work every day of my life, and I never took any notice of the architectural brilliance untill I saw Jesses profile! One of my top 10 best profiles that I am following to date.

  @Satin_rose1

The beautiful Masha……. that I have never actually seen!…lol…..

Masha has one of those profiles that just entices you in picture after picture…. She captures her life in a simplistic way that makes you fall in love with her whole profile.

Ps: I couldn’t locate a photo of Mashas face in full, but even if I did I wouldn’t reveal her identity.

@Msbkho

I had to put Becky on this list, I trained her to use a SLR, and now she has excelled to a whole new level without my help!…..

I wont even deny the fact that I sometimes get jealous that she spots a good shot before I do! lol…

London Landmarks….

Here are a few photos of the two most known landmarks in London, Big Ben and St Pauls Cathedral.

Heres a few facts that you might have not known….

St Pauls Cathedral…..

Big Ben…..

  • Big Ben is the nickname for the Great Bell of the clock at the north end of the Palace of Westminster.
  • At the base of each clock dial in gilt letters is the Latin inscription: ‘DOMINE SALVAM FAC REGINAM NOSTRAM VICTORIAM PRIMAM’ Which translates to ‘O Lord, keep safe our Queen Victoria the First.’Processed with VSCOcam with hb2 preset Processed with VSCOcam with hb2 preset Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset Processed with VSCOcam with hb2 preset Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

London Zoo…

The last time I visited London Zoo was when I was about 14 years old, so this time round it was a real treat to go and see all the wonderful exotic animals and insects. Luckily the weather was close to perfect and all the animals were out and about, which gave me a perfect chance to capture them chilling in the sun. My favorite animal of the day was the gorillas, they are just so amazing to watch, and so human like. Even though part of me feels bad for them being stuck in an enclosed place, I couldn’t help but feel happy that I got to see them all.

The Shard View…

Couple of weeks back I visited The Shard for the first time, and so glad I went.

Luckily I witnessed one of the most beautiful sunsets, I have seen quite a few sunsets from my trip around Europe, but this one just topped it all off!!

It was quite busy up there with all the tourists, which made it hard to take shots of the view but with persistence I ended up with a few good shots that I was proud of!…

Here are a few that I dug up from my hard drive….
