Parliament

In Cityscape, England, London, Travel by Robert Lussier2 Comments

I’ve been doing more work with textures using Perfect Photo Suite from onOne Software. And I’m having an absolute blast doing it. This is one that I am particularly happy with. I stood at this spot on the Themes, just a few yards left of the London Eye, for about an hour waiting for the …

The Way In

This is the entry way to the guest quarters at Warwick Castle. It is hidden behind a gigantic iron gate and covered by thick vegetation above, creating this gorgeous path. The day my son and I toured the castle, we went out of our way to get this shot. We did have to hustle a …

The Queen’s Guard

I was surprised to see the guard here initially.  I knew the Queen’s guard were stationed outside Buckingham Palace, and I would have made the assumption that they would be posted outside any other of the Queen’s many residences, but at first I couldn’t figure out why this guard was posted outside Waterloo Barracks at …

Another Black and White for today. This one was shot from the top of the London tour bus as we passed near the Houses of Parliament in Westminster. I like images that juxtapose old buildings against new, so that little glimpse of the very modern London Eye through the vastly older architecture appealed to me. …

Tower Bridge Blue

I teased this image last week when I posted a black and white version of Tower Bridge. I owe the “beach front” access to my friend, Mark Blundell. For me, it is the prize of our photo walk.  After our first stop at this spot, Mark and I hit a pub and waited for the …
