    Exceptional shots on this post – did you use a tripod for any of them?

    • Thank you, No I didn’t have it with me on this day, unfortunately. To get around this the interiors are 5,000 iso and the post-production has careful noise reduction.

  2. I think I like the human touches you pick up on your journey as much as the more obvious, but essential, shots. All great, anyway! 🙂

    • I agree – it’s the contrast between the intimate and personal with the grand and symbolic that make this so interesting to me too.
