Vauxhall


After a trip out to Pimlico on Friday afternoon last week, I grabbed what was supposed to be a drink (and turned into a few) with a friend. Then, with a nice few pints on board and the world firmly put to rights, I headed over to the other side of the Thames and, taking advantage of a few spare minutes – and in spite not having a tripod so having to rest my camera on the handrail of the world’s bounciest footbridge – I managed to capture a few shots of the rush hour traffic streaming past Vauxhall tube station.

    • Thanks very much! Yeah, I just rested it on the footbridge handrail and used a 5sec timer to avoid any camera shake from pressing the shutter. Didn’t always help as any time more than one or two people – or just a single particularly heavy-footed person – walked over the bridge the long exposure looked like something taken in an earthquake.
