I took up photography not so long ago to be honest, and never really expected to enjoy it ..... but I did!
When it comes to taking pictures I am a very big fan of little post processing. Croping, fiddling with the saturation, making photos B&W or Sepia, or selective colouring are all fine. But heavily photoshopped photos where people take one image, and splice it into another to give truly amazing shots, while nice on the eye, sort of make me feel that they aren't true photographers, but just excellent Photoshoppers.
Please don't get me wrong - I think these photos are amazing, but what really impresses me is a photo that has been taken and had little done to it other than the photographers eye for detail.
I really enjoy taking pictures just for the hell of it. Some are with my iPhone, some random snaps. Some look crap, some look pretty OK. Its about enjoying yourself behind the camera.

"londonslr is, by far, one of the most inspiring photographers known to flickr! I love his style... and not to mention I have learned a lot from his photographs :) stunning colours, beautiful compositions, and inspiring subjects ... that's what this stream is about!
Thanks for all your support, and I look forward to more additions in your stream! :)"

"Londonslr has combined a wonderful ability to spot and photograph the life and humour of a big city, with a talent for driving and administering the ULTIMATE group.
I have found his constructive advice most helpful and inspiring."
