POTD: Albert Memorial

The Albert Memorial, London, UK

Here’s another photograph from my recent travel photography workshop in London. The Albert memorial stands in tribute to Queen Victoria’s late prince consort. On this unusually cloudless afternoon in London, we waited until early evening to photograph the memorial and avoid harsh shadows.

Capturing the essence of London

Travel photography is all about capturing moments that give a distinct feeling of place. In London, there’s nothing more distinctive than the red double-decker busses that roam the city streets. On this picture-postcard day, I chose to capture the motion of the bus with a long exposure (learn how here). Even though the bus is blurred, the viewer knows exactly what it is and where I’m at. The beautiful architecture of St. Pancras station creates a great backdrop.
