Genka and Petar's London Trip

Last week I had a wonderful and memorable time with my dear friends Genka and Petar who visited me from Bulgaria.   Genka had lived and worked here before, but it was Petar’s first time, so we took in all the main sites in London. We also spent a day in Oxford, but I will present those photos on a separate post.   These are just a small sample of the many photos I took, and all include Genka and Petar in the shots, both of whom are very photogenic! From the images it may seem like we had the whole of London to ourselves, but I tried to capture them with as few other people as possible in the shot, or from different angles. They were very patient with me!Jena organised a surprise birthday dinner for Genka at our favourite restaurant, Tas Pide, and they brought out a delicious cake. It was a great evening with excellent service as usual, and it was followed by a short visit to a salsa bar.   I took many shots of the London landmarks themselves, but I may present those in a separate post also. All the photos were shot with my humble Nikon D40, and captured RAW, which helped capture the most possible detail and recover highlights and shadows.   I hope you enjoy these images from around London, and maybe you will be inspired to make your own visit.   And if you need a tour guide…… J

In front of the magnificent and breathtaking Mandir in Neasden. We really enjoyed the temple and even participated in a Diwali Prayer. Unfortunately, no photos were allowed inside. But you must visit!

Some classics here Alpha but have to say the Autumn view one is a stunner..... soft spot for colours maybe, but credit given where due.
Great work as always my friend.

Impressive work. I'm really getting into this style of photography. Looks like your subjects appreciated it too!
