Piccadilly Circus

Piccadilly Circus, London, England

One of my favorite places in London is Piccadilly Circus. It is also one of the places where I am most exasperated. Every time I visit, something in the area is being refurbished. This time included. There was scaffolding on some of the buildings on the north-side of the Eros statue. It’s like the government of England knows. “He’s coming again. Operation Piccadilly Circus is a go!” Guess I’ll have to try again. Maybe the next time I visit, I’ll get lucky.

The above photograph of Piccadilly Circus was taken around noontime on a busy weekday. (I made sure not to include any of that damn scaffolding.)

I posted a new photo gallery titled “Life” on my Rich Green Photography people and lifestyle website (as opposed to my RJGreenphotography site which focuses on my corporate work.


Headshots aka Portraits aka “Don’t take my picture!”

 

They’re not always just heads. Come on, we’ve all shot portraits. You don’t have to be a “portrait photographer” to take someone’s photo. It’s just that you can usually tell when a pro does it and when Uncle Buck is the source. So the question is, if Uncle Buck has the camera and he wants to take your photo and you KNOW you’re gonna be down in the left-hand corner and very dark because the rest of the photo is the bright blue sky washing out the photo, so what do you do? Do what I would do, be polite, smile and run the hell away. Actually what I do is tell Uncle Buck to hold the camera while I position myself in front of it. It’s a little bit of guess work – where to stand – but it’s better than leaving everything up to him.

We are a world of photographers and only about 2% are pros (and that doesn’t mean they’re any good), so you gotta learn to adapt.
