I went to London for two days meeting some fund managers. I’d like to make regular visits to the City as part of Optimix’ manager selection process. The results of these visits were sufficient, as I found some fund managers which are eligible to add to our client portfolio’s and I came home with some useful insights.
Between the meetings I fortunately had some time to enjoy the city. For that I had brought my camera equiped with the Canon EF 17-40mm L f/4 USM wide angle lens. This combination fitted easily in my single bag hand luggage. The weather on the two days was lovely and I’m happy with some of the photographs I was able to shoot. The first photograph is typical for London, it’s cab. I tried to make a more abstract photo, using the technique of zooming during the lenght of exposure while panning the movement of the cab. I like the result.
This photograph was taken in Liverpool Street Station. I had put my camera on the balcony and was therefore able to lower the ISO value to 50 and narrow the aperture to f/22. This resulted in a nice slow exposure of 1/2 second, which captures to movement of these commuters nicely.
Altogether a very succesful trip to London.
