Three weeks ago, my family and I set out on a bit of a trip – a bit of work, a bit of play, a lot of exploring and a whole lot of photography; London was our first stop. There’s also Ethiopia, Italy, Switzerland and more – but we started out with the U.K.
We wandered London for a few days right after we got there. We were staying in Southwark but took the tube everywhere. To Camden Town, Kensington, Covent Garden, The London Eye, Buckingham Palace, so very many of London’s beautiful, sprawling gardens and on and on and on.
After a few days, I got to kick off my 3-day Portrait Photographer’s Workshop. It went so beautifully well, I’ll have to dedicate another post to that – but, for the meantime, here are just a few of the very, very many photographs I took while in London, all shot with the Nikon D800 and either the 24-70 f2.8 or 14-24 f2.8 lenses.
First off, funky, vibrant Camden Town:
We were blessed with some rather beautiful weather most of the time we were there, which was about a week and a half altogether.
Clockwise from upper left: Caleb happened to match the pop of Neal’s Yard effortlessly, a shot from inside Covent Garden’s Apple Store, sweet Sophie against a background that matched her eyes, and the eerily beautiful Brompton Cemetery in London.

So much riding of the tube! Check out the creepy guy in the window behind Caleb, upper right shot – and Steve and the kids, while waiting at Kensington Station.
Love all the incredible, free museums. Even the ones with attacking dinosaurs.
