AN OLD LONDON STROLL...

  World © Geoff Wilkinson - All right reserved
Had a lovely walk around a very old part of London on Sunday during the photowalk workshop. The day started gloomy and overcast, exactly what we need for the first part of the walk in alleyways and courtyards, then summer sunshine in the afternoon.

I took today's photograph in St Brides Church, Fleet Street, its the spiritual home of the media, hence my love for it. It's a fabulous building and it always reminds me of our own St Mary the Virgin in Overton Drive, Wanstead. St Brides was designed by  Sir Christopher Wren in 1672 although much of the original was gutted by fire during the blitz in 1940. If you are in the Fleet Street area do try to pop in you won't be disappointed. 

I can't wait for next week's walk...

For technically minded photographers I used the HDR method to take this photograph. If you would like to know more about that you will be able to see an article on my photography blog at Geoff Wilkinson Photography shortly.

  2. Must admit Fleet Street was fascinating for me also Geoff. The photo opportunities walking around old London would be unbelievable. I just went over and checked out your photography blog. Was so interesting to read about your camera choices, what you take with you on a shoots and how you carry them around. It inspired a near future post for me :)

    p..s. Geoff when I tried to answer your comment straight from the comment section on my blog it showed up as there was no blog and that your blog title was available for use, not sure what that's all about but I had to actually come to your link on my sidebar to connect.
