The idea of travelling on the London Underground with children might send shivers through some people it is actually a fun way for them to travel. It might be one of the only times they get to travel this way and there are a few things you can do to make it a little more enjoyable.
One of my favourite things to do during spring and summer is just to walk around London and take photos, capturing things I hadn't seen before or just trying a different angle of a building.
This got me thinking about a photography project that you can join in with and it might even keep the children entertained and you'll get to see different parts of London.
On Friday I was in Brighton early morning and gave me the chance to take a photo of the West Pier. I wanted to try a longer exposure to smooth out the water and see what it would look like.
This was taken using a Nikon D610, tripod, 10 stop ND filter and a 20-second exposure.
I quite like the way it's come out.
Being a snap happy individual, there’s no doubt that you have your trusty DSLR on your back wherever you go. You might even pack a spare lens or two, some filters, your tripod and a backup battery in your Lowepro backpack. Any opportunity that arises for a great shot or two and you're there. Whether street photography, landscape shots or portraiture is your thing, you can always try your hand at something new.
This wasn't meant to be the photo this week, I planned on something and that all went out the window when I damaged ligaments in my ankle on Monday. This has meant that walking has been a struggle so hiking for a beautiful landscape hasn't happened.
Instead, I set up a tripod, camera and tulip to at least take a photo I was happy with.
The A7iii is the latest full-frame mirrorless camera from Sony and it's their 'entry-level' one. It's a 24.2mp all singing all dancing, 690+ focus points, touch-screen, 4K recording camera.
Priced at £2,000 for a professional camera it's not too expensive, don't get me wrong it's expensive but not compared to D4 iv or D850.
I took this photo in the middle of the week when it seemed like spring was ready to make an appearance. Green grass, colour in the morning sky and slightly improved weather.
Since then we've had rain, wind and over the weekend more snow. It wasn't as much as last time but it gave everything a light dusting.
Sorry, slightly late picking my favourite photo from all the #MySundayPhoto link ups in February.
This month I have picked this amazing photo from Siân who blogs at Helpful Mum, as soon as I saw this image it took my breath away.
Lewis from Adventure Brown, sent me a photo to edit which was taken at Cauldron Falls in Glencoe Scotland.
The photo was taken using a Sony A6000 and as you can see it was a longer exposure of 3.2seconds and it looks like a wonderful location for photography.
