Take a walk down bokeh street

Newer Older

I was out with some friends around London one evening last week. I wanted lots of wet, cold, dark side-street shots, but alas we never found any (going out again on Tuesday to hunt them again).

Here's one from the footbridge over the Thames, near the London eye. Focusing very close then move up to get the blurry figures as they walk towards/away from me on the bridge.

(I'm on the train down to London atm, so no doubt this looks totally different on my laptop to what it'll be when I get to the office)

    Cool, I really like this, and the 50mm is a little gem. We were talking about this at the social, Nikons 'gift' to it's customers are the 50mm f1.8 and the sb600.

    Nice perspective. Good example of where the subject is out of focus and the composition is just fine.
