london in black and white
My Dad gave me my first SLR camera in 1991, a Nikon 801, and I went to Somerset House camera in hand, to take some photos. Since then Somerset House has always been on my London list of places to visit as it's the home to the Courtauld Gallery. It was a dreary old day in London town and I found these lonely looking chairs in the courtyard.
The dancing fountains in the courtyard.
I love these weather beaten decorations.
A rainy day in London but despite the weather, I love how regal this entryway is.
Due to raging jet-lag it took me 2 goes to track it down, but I eventually found the Chelsea Hospital and was intrigued by all the lines in this image.
The Victoria and Albert Museum is always on my list of places to visit in London.
I could say the same thing about Borough Markets. I love visiting the markets for the sights, the sounds and the smells. It's a highly photogenic place.
As you can see the weather in London wasn't too kind to me that day.
The cute Wright Brothers Oyster and Porter House.
I loved this detail from Neal's Yard Cheese Shop.
My favourite black and white image from London and yes I admit to stalking this gentleman until I could get a shot of him having a sneaky ale outside the coffee shop.
See you all again next week with some more black and white images, this time from Paris.
Bye for now,
