Saturday touristPosted: August 25, 2007
I went to Tate Britain first thing today so see the How We Are – Photographing Britain exhibition. We tried to see it couple weeks ago, since my friend Marianne has one of her photos in the special Flickr sponsored part of it, but we were too late to get in. Hence this photo being quite appropriate. And it was open today, and I saw it (and took a sneaky photo of it for Marianne). ;)
From the Tate I walked via Parliament Square to Trafalgar Square. I felt like doing some touristy shots and what is a better place than heart of London by Nelson. You can catch so many great people shots there. And Nelson really is my favourite guy in London. :D
It's not legal to feed the birds at Trafalgar Square anymore. I remember the first time I stood in this spot over 15 years ago you couldn't see the ground from the pidgeons. And some people still get a bit lost in London. I had to snap him for good old time's sake.
My favourite shot(s) from the day. There is something very sweet about this, in a very London way. I'm not quite happy with the Kodal Elite 400 film I put through the camera though today. A bit too saturated for my taste, but I'm still learning what I can do with the new camera (which is part of the fun!).
So, for the rest of the weekend – I have a little plan to go and take my Holga to the Notting Hill Carnival on Monday. I've never been, which is quite embarrasing, since I've lived in London almost nine years. I kinda feel it is about time I experienced one of its institutions. I have said this same thing the past couple years though, so no guarantees.
