Capturing the essence of London
Travel photography is all about capturing moments that give a distinct feeling of place. In London, there’s nothing more distinctive than the red double-decker busses that roam the city streets. On this picture-postcard day, I chose to capture the motion of the bus with a long exposure (learn how here). Even though the bus is blurred, the viewer knows exactly what it is and where I’m at. The beautiful architecture of St. Pancras station creates a great backdrop.
