Photographing "The City"

Recently I visit London to see the Sony World Photography Awards & Martin Parr - 2017 Exhibition at the Somerset House where i saw my “commended” photography, named “Skyscrapers and Mountains”, digitally exhibited in the Travel category of the Open Competition.

For my trip in London, I have leaved Italy with the idea to do architectural and street photography so I chose to put in the bag my faithful A99 with the Sony 28-75/2.8 SAM, the 35/1.4 G and a wide angle, a Minolta 17-35/2.8-4 for the monuments and architecture.

During my trip to London I’ve visited the City and I took photo of its beautiful places, of its architecture and its people.

In the images above a view of the River Thames with the London Eye and flyng pidgeons, in the image on the left, and Camden Lock in the centre and pidgeon on the Tower Bridge on the right.

For Street photography when I’ve found the place, I’ve composed the image and I had wait for some action, then I shoot.

What I’ve seen it’s “The City” always in movement, in every street, in the Tube and in its most attractive places.

In order from left to right and up to down: down the stairs of National Gallery, down in the Tube, on the street of Notting Hill, skateboarding under Westminster Palace.

 And, finally, the British Museums where someone pass and someone rest.
