    A selec­tion of my favourite cap­tures from our lit­tle wan­der about in West­min­ster.

    West­min­ster in Lon­don

    These pho­tographs have been on the back burn­er ever since I returned from Eng­land sim­ply because of the vol­ume of images I had cap­tured and how unpre­dictably dif­fi­cult they were to edit, most­ly due to con­stant changes in light­ing. We vis­it­ed West­min­ster on a day that had weath­er fluc­tu­a­tions so severe that we saw the sun, wind and rain all with­in the span of ten min­utes. While we were on the Lon­don Eye, we expe­ri­enced all three simul­ta­ne­ous­ly, which not the ide­al con­di­tion to be shoot­ing through win­dows: think flared, macro rain­drop shots. Nonethe­less, there was some­thing so calm­ing about a 360 degree glean over a city so intri­cate­ly con­struct­ed and organ­ised — feel­ing so detached as a spec­ta­tor, yet so over­whelmed in obser­va­tion at the busy­ness of locals in their mun­dane mean­der­ings. Over the past few months, I have expressed my absolute ado­ra­tion of Lon­don to such an extent that my words feel a lit­tle repet­i­tive. As such, I will let the pho­tographs speak for them­selves. Here are a selec­tion of my favourite cap­tures from our lit­tle wan­der about in West­min­ster.
