Hey everyone, happy Tuesday! With the lockdown easing a little I have been taking longer walks in London. The majority of the most popular sights are within an hours walk for me, and I have been taking turns walking around the areas whilst they are much quieter than normal. St Pauls, Covent Garden, Piccadilly Circus, Kings Cross, London Eye, Buckingham Palace… and with three cameras I am starting to build up a folder or two of new shots.
What I like about the GoPro is the burst function, allowing 15 shots to be taken in a couple seconds. This is good for capturing something fast moving, such as a backflip, and catching each sequence. I found it was also good for getting a 180 degree view of my surroundings, by hitting shoot and quickly rotating.
I look like a ballerina doing it, but thankfully there isn’t too many people around to see this.
I posted the shots to Instagram as the carousel format allows you to flick through as if you are there.
PS: Don’t look at the hashtags!! It gives the game away :p

We’ve had some gorgeous days in London recently, and it’s even better knowing that there are less restrictions for exercise and getting out. I’ve been going on much longer walks around the city for this reason, taking my Nikon and GoPro, and used the burst setting to capture this 180 on the #milleniumbridge half way over. Every shot has at least one London landmark in it, can you see them all? 👀 #london #londonwalks #springtime #dailywalks #architechture #touristinmyowncity #londonlandmarks #ilovelondon #londonlockdown #covidwalks #londonsightseeing #blueskies #londonerslife #londoners #capital #letsplayagame #stpaulscathedral #shard #shardlondon #towerbridge #walkietalkiebuilding #tatemodern #thames
The only problem is the fisheye lens makes a smooth transition between shots pretty hard, unlike panoramic mode on most smart phones.
But it was able to take in each and every angle facing east, and all the sights that can be seen from the bridge.
Using the pictures, how many famous landmarks can you see? Clue: Big Ben and the London Eye are behind me, so aren’t hidden between the buildings 😉
Due to the Coronavirus outbreak I am somewhat limited as to what I can do in London, but I aim to post as much as I can during this time. I promise to have some great posts coming your way once this is all over as I continue to explore London.
Stay home, stay safe and happy blogging!
