The Last of London

So this is the last handful of London travel photos from my trip. After the initial excitement of seeing so many iconic spots in person, I realized that I struggled there, just as I do here in DC, to capture overly-photographed spots in a new light. As photographer Jay Maisel aptly put it when finding the right angle for a shot, “Move your ass.” To this I would add, “and just keep moving it.” Bend down, stand on your toes, lean over the side, shoot upside down, get up close, shoot through obstacles, leave and come back at a different time, have your kids photobomb (which will occur in the soon-to-emerge Paris handful of photos)…the possibilities for moving to try to achieve a different shot are endless. And for goodness sake, shoot in *manual* and PLAY with your settings. That little ticker doesn’t *always* have to hit the “0” mark. So without further adieu, the last of London…
