Blue Light District 

Another shot from over the Christmas period, this time in a street off Carnaby Street in London. I liked the bright boue of the bulbs against the sky.
Again shot with my iPhone, I’ve darkened the sky a bit in Photoshop, increased the vibrance and taken out any distracting street signs.

London calling

Eventually got round to uploading my shots from over Christmas…! Again I went to the King’s Cross area of London over the Christmas break ( I took some shots last year here). King’s Cross was, it’s safe to say, not the nicest of areas 20 years ago. I’d just moved to London and every time I came back from visiting family I’d have to run the gauntlet to get to the Tube. The place wasn’t terrifying or anything, just not….desirable, shall we say.

Now it’s unrecognisable. It’s been gentrified and businesses are moving in ( even’s Google’s UK head office) and with that has come a lot of street art as well as a lot of opportunities for people watching. I love wandering around and seeing what catches my eye, especially as there’s so many shapes from all the new architecture that’s sprung up.The area stretches from behind King’s Cross and St Pancras train stations, both huge stations as St Pancras runs the Eurostar services, and beyond Regent’s Canal to the old train yards behind, they’re all restaurants now. There’s loads of flats/ apartments there now, I’d buy there if I could afford it!

I’ve posted a few shots below, once I get round to cleaning the rest up I’ll post more.

Enjoy.

I shot the last one through glass so there’s a bit of a selfportrait going on there as well…

 

 

Twilight

I just shot this with my iPhone a couple of weeks back while out on a walk. I’m really impressed with the iPhone camera to be honest, I’ve always had “entry market” phones before, to put it politely, and I’d had enough of them going wrong so I coughed up for this 6S that I have now, and the camera is a big bonus!

It had been a lovely sunny winter’s day and the sun was going down behind the hill that I was on. I liked the colours in the sky and that’s what made me dig my phone out.

No editing- only the bodge job of me removing a tree that I didn’t like from the bottom right corner. I’ve got Elements 12 and very little knowledge of editing so the results are plain to see!
