“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a cash advance.” – Bumper sticker
I had a pretty cool evening wandering around this familiar city in what turned out to be uncharted territory for me! It’s easy to fall into the tourist trap and although there is usually a list of sorts of the “must see” spots in a city like London, the challenge is to veer off the beaten path, or at the very least, the familiar path you have trekked before, to find new locations as well as new vantage points for sites and scenes you have absorbed before. It was with that determination that I bumbled into this area. Sure this area has been there for a while (a long while actually!), but the area behind me was this really cool harbor housing some really cool boats surrounded by loft living spaces, cool restaurants, and trendy shops. Strange, but after visiting London at least four times in the past, I had this feeling of “when did they put all this hear?” It’s fun exploring a city all over again 🙂
On a completely different note, I’m checking out a new class on Kelby Training on light painting. As a lighting designer, landscape photographer, and traveler, I was particularly interested in this one. Dave Black is a pretty amazing teacher (and funny too!)
As always, I’ll share what I learn along the way as I experiment, create, and play with this new art called LightPainting
I’ve been a HUGE fan of their classes and online training for years now. Whether you are looking to brush up your chops (and who isn’t) in portrait, landscape, sports, wedding, commercial, or travel photography, there is a class for you. And they have yearly, monthly, and now pay per view classes available. I’ll see you there! Check in out here!
