Part three - was a bit further afield at St James Square, where hanging from above and sitting on roofs were ethereal sculptures made of light - Les Voyageurs (The Travellers) by the wonderful French artist Cedric Le Borgne. This was my favourite light instalation. All shots were taken handheld with Fuji X-T1 and Fujinon FX 50-140mm f2.8 lens.
Part two of the London Lumiere festival was in Oxford Circus, Regent, Carnaby and Piccadilly streets. The instalations were: Les Lumineoles by Porte par la vent, 1.8 London by Janet Echelman (Studio Echelman), Dresses by Tae gon KIM, Neon Dogs by Deepa Mann-Kler and others.
London's cold and dark nights were lit up by the London Lumiere festival, that took place across four large areas of the City. I will therefore have a few separate posts on this wonderful and amazing light and art show. Here is part one in Mayfair with instalations: Sanctuary - by Sarah Blood, Brothers and Sisters - by Ron Haselden, Lightbench by Bernd Spiecker, and Aquarium by Benedetto Bufalino & Benoit Deseille. All shots were taken with Fuji X-T1 and 50-140mm f2.8 lens handheld.
At Christmas a large part of Hyde Park was converted into an amusement park - Winter Wonderland. So what will a kid with a camera do? Yep, go and have some fun. Here are a few photos taken at the park at night with long-ish exposures to get some light/movement sense or presence. Those from above were taken from the observation wheel. All but one (the last one) were taken with Fuji X-T1 and 18-55mm f2.8-4.0 which has an impressive image stabilisation - all shots were taken handheld. The last image was made with X100T 23mm lens.
