One hour after watching the moonrise over the Sydney Opera House the sun started coming up. Now there were a few more people around. Looking at the round street lights made me wonder. Would it be possible to compose the sunrise behind one of these lights? This experiment turned out much better than I’d hoped. Especially with the couple stood under the light and the two ferries in the harbour.
Shakespeare and Company is an independent English language bookshop in central Paris. It’s across the river from the Notre Dame Cathedral on the Left Bank. This bookstore opened in 1919 by an American Sylvia Beach. It has become a tourist attraction in it’s own right. The inside is compact but much bigger than I expected. Photography isn’t allowed inside without permission. There are many people reading and writing like the lady picture here. She is on her phone and I didn’t use flash or make any noise to capture this interior scene.
Slänggungan or Wave Swinger is a fairground ride. I enjoyed the challenge of photographing a lot more than I would have done riding it. If you see one of these carousels and have a camera try a capture it. It’s tricky to get the sense of movement without making everything too blurred. Visiting friends in Gothenburg I wasn’t expecting to go to an amusement park. They had booked for us to go to a wonderful all you can eat restaurant which was awesome. After eating way to much we went for a walk around the park.
The changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace happens 4 times a week over summer. I remember standing in front of the palace as a child watching this 45 minute ceremony. Walking to Westminster after a bike ride in Hyde Park and seeing crowds starting to gather. I thought it’d be worth waiting to see what was about to happen. We stood at the gates of the Wellington Barracks on Spur Road. I wasn’t expected the Queen’s Guard march out of the gates so fast. Because of this there’s a little blur in their feet.
