Ghosts of London

Ghosts of London

Walking around London at night with a tripod is so much fun. At first I was annoyed when this gentleman walked in front of my tripod in order to take his photo. But in the end I really liked what it became. Big Ben is in the background. A really cool thing I was is images and words being projected onto Big Ben. Walking along the Thames in London is a great place to find all kinds of things to photograph. There is so much going on and after dark everything has nice lights making everything glow.

Alas the lens I used to take this image is now destroyed. I’m currently waiting on an insurance claim to see if it’s covered. My plan is to replace it with a slightly different lens. It’s not quite as wide angle, but it will let in a lot more light for better low light images. It is also weather sealed so I won’t have to worry as much when i’m shooting out in the rain.

Plans

I’m now gone from London, but it was getting pretty cold there. Currently in Germany and now its getting cold here. So my next move is to slowly make my way down to Grenada, in Spain and camp out there for at least a month. Its still cold there, but not below freezing so I can handle that.

Growing up one of my biggest dreams was to explore the world. Honestly I never thought this would become reality. But at the end of 2014 I quit my job as a project manager to do just that. I sold most everything I own, packed up the remaining boxes in storage, and set out to see the world. My goals while traveling are to meet people everywhere I go, work on becoming a better photographer, and attempt to stay where the weather is not freezing. Along the way I am posting photos at Pixelbip.com and writing about my experiences at EarthToKeir.com
