Originally this started as a collection of photos I wanted to post. I was a novice photographer when I started this blog. Now I have learnt some of the tricks of the trade and can call myself an amateur. I will use this blog to highlight some of my works and also some tricks/tips which I think may be useful to others.

London in winter

I had been to London for three weeks between March and April. I was all alone, and with my camera. Being shy, I could not start firing my camera at people, but here are some of the snaps which I really like.

This is my most favorite shot from the trip, where I have captured a tube station on a Sunday.

This is another favorite photo, where it shows a cathedral, which was very near my second hotel, in Paddington.

Saint James Church, London

The following picure is not a great, by any means,but I like the way the "Fish & Chips" sign highlight the spirit of London.

And, finally, a rainy day at hide park. I had an umbrella, but my camera and I were completely drenched, by the time I ran to the hotel.

I am not sure whether I selected the best of the lot from the 300 odd I clicked in London. I do believe though that this represents some of the my memories, which I witnessed in London.
