London at Night

A few days ago I finally wandered into London with a tripod and my camera. I've been meaning to do this for months and take long exposure shots of various places in London, as well as seeing whether I can make cool timelapses. I've only taken a few pictures near the Thames and the London Eye so far, with one timelapse of the London Eye. I am however planning to return for more. This photography trip also coincided with the conjunction of Jupiter and Venus.

Here are some of the images:


Jupiter and Venus next to Big Ben


A bus streaming past


Houses of parliament

And at last item, a timelapse of the London Eye:

The London Eye, spinning at 75 times its normal speed.

This timelapse was recorded with 802 images. Each image is taken 3 seconds after the previous one resulting in a speed-up of 75 times. Lighting has been manually monitored during the taking of the images.

The rest of the images are on flickr.

Love the shot of the bus and the video of the eye, nice work!
