Goof old night time photography with the tripod. Lovely sunset behind the Blue Mosque.
And here's the same view a short while later once the sun had disappeared.
Then, turning through a 180 degrees we have the Hagia Sofia.
Finally, just around the corner is the site of the Hippodrome:
One of the problems of travelling in mid-November is that it is the off-season for a reason. The weather can be a bit hit and miss. So it was in Bruges. Although still lovely and not over-run with tourists it was more than a little bit cold, wet and miserable.
However, I did get a stunning lunch and after dinner the weather had cleared sufficiently for me to go for an evening walk with my camera.
Big floodlit buildings, bridges and statues, a reflection or two, add in some blurred movement from a boat and Bob's your Uncle... Neil's looking to get the camera and tripod out.
This is the first instalment of what I imagine will be a recurring theme as I work my way down the river... There a number of really interesting bridges and pieces of public art.
The Steel work was quite eye-catching at night.
This is the same bridge as before but showing a boat moving down the river and the Jin Tower, which is the tallest building in Tianjin in the background.
The next bridge up, which leads to the Old Italian Concession, is modelled on a Parisian theme. It sounds fairly bad, but actually the effect is quite nice. The Italian concesion is full of EUropean resaurants and is not a bad place to eat, but it does, to me a t least, feel really touristy.
This will be a blog about my latest shots and what I liked or was trying to do with them
I am a teacher of Economics and have worked in various schools in Europe & Asia. One of the things I love doing is getting out and about with my camera.
