Pic(k) of the week 17: The Photographers' gallery - London
As most of you know, I rarely leave the house and definitively not the country, without taking a camera with me. Since earlier this year, this has been mostly my FujiFilm Sexy-1, officially called the X-E1...
Last Sunday, I spend the afternoon, looking for photo opportunities around Soho in Central London.
Even though the capital of the United Kingdom has developed a bad reputation for being "photography unfriendly", it still remains an interesting place for classic "Street Photography"!
I briefly visited "The Photographers' Gallery", just of Oxford street which always gets the creativity juices flowing!
It was at this gallery, that I made the Black and White image above. The gentleman on the left is clearly more interested in the view outside, while his friend on the right is listening to one of the exhibition presentations. By the way, the view from the higher floors of this gallery is indeed interesting...
