Painting with light in London

Yesterday the evening weather in London was so nice that I took my camera and positioned myself on Piccadilly Circus for a while. I took loads of photos but only found a couple of them worthy enough to go on display.

I tried ghost people before in New York, but you can do that in London too, look at these Ghost legs in front of the bus!

There are car stripes and the real London Painting with Light one. (I did try the same experiment in New York, on Times Square.)

And there is the brave bicycle lady (without helmet mind you!) who claims Piccadilly circus for herself for a moment right in the middle of the cars, buses and cabs madness, wonderful.

And there is bus number 19 in motion and I love, love, love this photograph. You can just about recognize the shape of a cab coming around the corner.

I probably don’t follow any of the how-to-take-a-photograph rules, but sometimes you just need to take your camera and play. You can be surprised with the results.

  1. Yes I love the bike lady too, it was indeed a lucky shot :)

    @grigorisgirl: that painting with light is so cool! I need to try that out for sure. (Needs a tripod though!)

  2. @Sue I have just ordered som LED lights on eBay to do some light painting with. My mum will be over next weekend, so we will do some experiments then! :)
