Tuesday – Tales from Londontown.

Blog

Well here I am in the big city or, ‘up the smoke’ as my east London relatives would say….

Every where you look there is an icon, Big Ben or St Stephen’s Tower to give it it’s proper title is almost the symbol of London. I was sitting on the Southbank having a morning Starbucks when it sounded 9 o’clock this morning, what a majestic sound.

FRIDAY FINDS – DON’T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF (or how I learnt that not perfect is ok)

2014, digital, digital art, family, Friday, friday finds, heartwork, Iphoneography, journal, Journaling, kim klassen, out and about, Photography, Photoshop and Lightroom, Photoshop Artistry

Sounds of sirens, of many languages. Bustling, running, pushing. This is London, vibrant and loud, flawed and thrilling. Could I live here ? No, but a place to visit and marvel at the beauty. The immense landscape, of modern and ancient, somehow it works. Joggers pant past tourists with maps and cameras, buskers play steel drums all a glorious mess. I love you London…..

We visited London for the day. What a shock, I hadn’t visited for a few years. It was an assault on the senses and I was so tired when I got home. When I loaded my images to say I was disappointed is an understatement. But, when I start looking again I realised that this is street photography, you don’t have time to stand around composing, you get pushed and shoved so it has to be snap snap. So if it’s not completely in focus does that really matter ?

I have decided that I still love the whole Photoshop Artistry thing, and although I don’t process like this so much anymore,  when I do I love it.

It is all about conveying a feeling and for memory keeping so important to maybe slip in some candid shots I have to learn that is OK.
