Photo Challenge 2

Another photo challenge for Bizhan and myself, and yet this time the greatest challenge was finding somewhere to actually take photos! We have both shot London to death so we were not fond of the choices. We finally settled on Canary Wharf, somewhere I have shot before as a dusk location, but it wasn’t as interesting as the streets we frequented on our previous challenge.   One saving grace of Canary Wharf was that we found a Relais D’Entrecote in which to eat. I have now eaten at their branches in Paris, New York and London.   Pregnant with food, we set out to limit ourselves even more than last time. Only a maximum of 20 shots was allowed and only one focal length, in my case 35mm (using the Nikkor 35mm F/2).  As before, I intended to convert to black and white, so this influenced my choice of subjects.   The 14 shots I took and have presented below are not my best, but limiting oneself and forcing oneself to think only about exposure and the merits of the composition is the only way to improve one’s eye for the shot.

So hard to get this hubcap reflection of Bizhan amongst the Canary Wharf towers without getting myself in the shot too.

Had to position myself so the flare would aim for those people.
