Loitering in London

Installment number 5 of the Euro tour. Unlike the previous sets that were from the summer and fall of 2010, these shots are from June, 2011. I had been to London less than a year earlier but was pretty unsatisfied with the shots I came away with. I decided to return to get a deeper experience of the city and hopefully snag some better photos. Rather than play tourist and visit the famous sites, I wandered the city in search of photo ops. If there are loitering laws in London, I'm pretty sure I broke all of them. I'd often wait in one spot to line up the right subject and background. Because of this I got harassed by security guards a lot. London isn't the friendliest place for photographers, especially in the city. My last night in the city, as I was walking near King's Cross, I witnessed a horrific act of two thugs stomping another mans face in with their boots. Other than that I had a lovely time. Before I left I grabbed a new lens, a Sigma 10mm HSM Fisheye. Enjoy!

Thanks for taking a look. Next up, I'll head north to Edinburgh.

I think it's about time for me to move back.

Great thread.


This was the first place I ever tried chicken feet... wasn't all that into them. Now, pig's feet on the other hand...

Nice pics. London is really pretty especially when its sunny. I kind of want to move there. If only it was easier to move to other countries.

The classiest city in the world, in my opinion. You brilliantly captured London's oh-so-sophisticated style and personality. I'm in love.

Great photos of one of the top four cities in the world and arguably, the best.

After viewing this thread I'm starting to wish that I scheduled more than a day in London on my vacation in two weeks. Sweet photos, Okayyou!

That was fierce...we don't get enough of London on here.

Loved Paternoster Square and St Pancras.

Thanks!
