Photographing Tourists

Sorry about my blogging absence lately.

I have been enjoying my cycle rides around London, particularly to and from work everyday. With the nice warm weather I have taken every opportunity to avoid public transport and cycle everywhere. Through cycling around, you really see London transform with millions of tourists hogging every bit of pavement. It really makes me appreciate London for what it is, the sights to see and the experiences to experience. Cycling past tourist attractions everyday, more or less everyone has a camera in their hands taking a photograph, some people even approaching me to take a photograph of them in front of this and that. It is great to be surrounded by photographers, both amateurs and professionals. One image that has stuck in my head from my bike ride today is of three people taking pictures next to each other, but of completely different things, all interesting.

With the wide variety of attraction such an amazing city has to offer, it only makes sense to document it with photography.

My latest Flickr uploads, on the right, show my various trips around London documenting the recent Olympic efforts around the capital and the Notting Hill Carnival.

    And in summer, especially, a city becomes even more colourful! The carnival pics are beautiful.
