All within easy walking distance of each other, the Reichstag (parliament), the Brandenburg Gate – both fully restored after substantial damage during the Second World War and the Holocaust memorial, built some way to the south of the Brandenburg Gate, are popular tourist spots in Berlin. Further away, at the Alexanderplatz is the Weltzeituhr (World Time Clock), showing the time in major cities around the world.
One cold February evening, a friend and I were standing around with tripods photographing some of the more famous London landmarks around the Tower Bridge area. Here are the results. These were taken with a Canon EOS5 and Fuji slide film (from memory, most probably Sensia).
During my first year on the committee of the Southampton University Photographic Society, we organised a trip (on the cheap; Ryanair flights and campsite-style accommodation) for 36 of us to Venice. At the last minute, I chose to substitute my then-new EOS5 in place of the two Olympus OM series manual-focus SLRs I had intended to take. I don’t think I regretted that decision.
Prague is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe and in general lacks modern high rise buildings (with the notable exception of the television tower). By night it is especially picturesque and romantic.
My first visit to Prague was in March 2008, where these photos were taken with a Canon EOS350D.
A few HDR shots taken about a year ago in the area near my home new when my EOS7D was new.
