In addition, I have put up a photographic portfolio as well :-) Please visit!
The Paddington Station has a inspiring architecture, and I just had to make a “old style” shot out of this. Ok, there are modern trains and stuff here… but… Suddenly I can imagine how it would have been in the “old times” :-)… do you see the old trains, and the coal and the steam…? :-)
5D, Sigma 24-70 at f2,8, ISO 1600
What’s your call?
This is taken from a couple of phone boots at Leicester Square in London. I like how they’ve managed to keep their typical red phone boots all over the city. It has some kind of historic touch with it…
And I like the crisp red colour.
5D, sigma 24-70 2.8. I have found the Sigma lens to be a really great walkaround lens with the full frame format camera :-)
Took this shot just before entering the Heathrow Express Train to the airport for travelling back home to Norway. I have always wanted to take a “busy life at the train-station” kind of picture, and since Paddington is a cool train station, I am happy I did it here.:-)
5D, Sigma 24-70mm 2.8.
Ok… this is probably a strange one :-) But I always check out if this kind of “out-of-focus” shot works… and this one of the London Eye does, I think :-) I also like the clear/crisp colours.
It is taken with my 5D and Sigma 24-70, which have lovely bokeh/out-of focus effect due to the way the blades in the shutter is created :-)
There are many great views along the Thames in London. This shot is of the Hungerford Bridge crossing the Thames. A couple of beautifully lit boats in the foreground. And I love the “star” light on the back of the boat to the right in the picture:-)
Taken with Canon 5D, sigma 24-70 and high ISO (1600).
This is in my mind one of the most spectacular views in London. The London Eye is a really amazing construction, and it really is something special by the river of Thames :-)
Just had to get this picture… It is kind of a London landmark :-)
5D and 24-70 :-)
