Six Days in London

Having recently spent 6 days in London, and having promised it in my last post, I have decided to do a bit of a wrap up of images shot in the six days.

Only hours after landing I headed down to Westminster, no wasting time!
More Westminster...

Trek all the way to Buckingham Palace only to find out Changing of the Guards was canceled.

A bit closer in...
The Selfridges building on Oxford Street.
Downing Street. Not often do i prefer a Hipstamatic photo over one from my dSLR,
I suppose the unobtrusiveness of the iPhone helped here.

Weekly Photo - 12/06/2011 "Goodbye Sydney"

I have just been informed that my flight to London has been delayed by an hour so rather then a late photo again I decided to update the blog now.

Vivid Sydney 2011 comes to a close tonight and as I am leaving Australia for a month I thought it was a fitting subject.

And a quick Hipstamatic Print from my iPhone of where I will be sitting for the next 2 hours due to the delay, yes that is my blog on the screen!

Vale Sergeant Brett Wood

Today Sydney stopped for the funeral of Australian commando Sgt Brett Wood who was killed by a roadside bomb last month in Afghanistan. Due to operational requirements and at the request of the Australian Defense Force the faces of his fellow commandos are obscured. 

I know I missed a couple of weekly photo posts however as it was the last few weeks of the university semester I had very little time to shoot let alone update the blog. The weekly updates will start again on Sunday however I found the funeral of an Australian Soldier too important to wait for the weekend to post.
