Conference Day

The last couple of days saw me attending a conference in London, which was unremarkable but for being hosted opposite Westminster Abbey and the Houses Of Parliament. Needless to say, I took my camera with me and sneaked out at lunchtime and in the evening to steal a few shots of the prestigious surroundings.I particularly enjoyed seeing the Union Jack flag everywhere. Patriotism and pride in one's nation is good, and helps to anchor a nation and galvanise its citizens to come together. Whenever I travel abroad, I am always reassured to see the national flag of whatever country I'm in flying high.The flower photos were taken in nearby St James's Park. For all these shots I used just two lenses, the Nikkor 50mm AF-S F/1.8G, and the Tokina 11-16mm F/2.8. The flower and bee shots were all taken with the 50mm at around F/2 to defocus backgrounds.The rich colours were helped by using a polarising filter (although not on the Tokina, which has no filter attached).Anyway, I hope the photos remind you of what an amazing place London can be, especially when the weather is good!
