SpringTime In The City

Spring must be here because the floral arrangements in Regent’s Park are at their most spectacular. The kaleidoscope of colour simply overwhelms the eyes and provides no end of photographic opportunities.   I wanted to travel light into London with my friend Zuzana, so I just took my little Nikon D40 (now 7 years old) and a couple of lenses. To be honest, I could have just used my phone and not had to carry anything extra at all, but there we are. Some of the shots were taken with my phone, the Nokia N8.   After the park we crossed the road and sat in Marylebone Church, fairly unassuming from the outside but quite photogenic on the inside.   All images were shot RAW and quickly processed in Lightroom. Some of the images are in black and white, simply because I'm going through a B+W phase at the moment. Hopefully the images demonstrate again that old technology is not necessarily bad technology, and the D40 can still hold its own.   Don’t waste too much time looking at these images; go down to Regent’s Park and enjoy it for yourself.

Used a couple of stacked ND Grad filters to help me slow down the shutter speed.

I was so impressed by how sharply the 50mm F/1.8G AF-S captured this heron at F/1.8.

During our excursion, I befriended a rather clingy baby squirrel. I set him down on a branch. 
B+W with the Nokia N8 - who needs a Leica M-Monochrom? ;)

ISO 1600. Not bad for an old man. (I'm referring to the D40, not me!)
And manually focused 35mm F/2 AF-D.
