Quite underexposed as this is 160 ISO film at sundown on a pretty gloomy day, but I think that maybe add’s to the look that you’d probably think of if someone asked you to describe London and it’s weather. I also like how the boat is passing in front of the bridge at exactly the right moment.
Another few images from the first roll I ran through the Olympus Trip my girlfriend’s dad gave me. All taken on Agfa Vista Plus 200, you can see in the later one’s how 200 ISO cheap film and a point and shoot start to struggle with the fading light, and yes these are a little “touristy”.
Some more street photography, not from my usual haunts this time but from my trip to London a few weeks ago, in fact the next few entries to this series will be from there. As usual all taken on my Olympus OM-D EM-5 with 17mm M.Zuiko Digital 1:1.8 lens, enjoy.

It’s Project 52 day again. Yes try to contain your excitement for a brief moment while I explain this week’s brief; Landscape – Black & White.
As many of you already know I shot a lot of black & white film and my street photography is pretty much exclusively in black & white as well, but when I shoot landscape’s I do not tend to go down that route. Why? Well I like big, bold, contrasty colours. I like sunset’s, I like long exposure’s of water and clouds darting across overcast skies. Basically I like to set up my tripod with my Nikon and big ol’ Sigma lens and take longer and longer exposure’s in peace and quiet, usually on a deserted beach or up a lonely mountaintop. What I don’t tend to do is shoot monochrome landscapes handheld with my Olympus when I’m on a day-trip, which is exactly what I did here.
Now this may or may not be cheating, I mean the brief said a black and white landscape it didn’t say I had to specifically go out with that in mind. So what I’ve done is converted an image I took earlier, not too much earlier as technically it was this week (Monday to be exact), into monochrome and gone with it. So below is the result of that.

I took a trip to London earlier this week, a day-trip so not for anything specific, and as such took a ton of photo’s. The vast majority were on film so I’ve got a few roll’s to get developed that are going to appear sometime down the line on the blog here, but in the meantime I thought I’d share a landscape/cityscape shot I took.
