Despite spending only one night there, I still somehow managed to walk away with nearly 2,000 London photos! A city I thought would be too similar to the US, well, let’s just say it’s not that similar at all.
I found myself going crazy pointing my camera every which way as we rode through it a top a double-decker bus. I was completely overwhelmed by the amount of potential photography subjects the city was filled with. From architecture, to people, to art, I didn’t know which way I should be pointing my camera.
Revisiting my photos after our trip, I realized what I love about London is its details. It’s so easy to get lost in them– in a good way. Flipping through my photos I noticed details here and there that I’m not even sure I realized were there in person.
With that being said, here’s a look at London through the lens.
