Amsterdam Aperture

Amsterdam 2016.

It was quite the trip I must say; especially getting to grips with the Amsterdam culture, lifestyle, and remembering that “forward” is on the right hand side of the road and not the left as it is here in England!

I spent an amazing few days there in the Dutch capital, and come leaving day I did not want to go home! Below I will share with you a few of my favourite captures from the trip. Captures are specifically from iPhone (6S+ model) as I did not take my DSLR.

Mother

It's not often that I do family posts on R.I.D, but here is a monochrome photo of my mother I took exactly a week ago.

Curving in Dalston

Yesterday afternoon, I visited the Dalston Eastern Curve Gardens (a cafe with great gardens) near Dalston Junction tube station and caught this unfiltered shot whilst waiting for a friend:

The grey building in the far distance looks as if it has been 'photoshopped' in or generated using architectural software Revit/Rhinoceros 3D (takes me back to my university days!). Quite cool!

Overground at Highbury & Islington

The other day I was on a connection into Shoreditch High Street station via Highbury & Islington and I captured this near monochromatic shot on board the London Overground.

Tubular Perspective

I think it is rude not to get a platform capture when heading for your train ;). I have taken this photo at Charing Cross tube station.

I completely removed all saturation from the photo except for the platform artwork as I found quite an interesting contrast between its colour and the monochrome of the rest of the photo. I welcome your thoughts. R

Lambeth Palace for The Prince's Trust

As I am associated with The Prince's Trust; I had the privilege of being invited along with other associates for their 40th anniversary celebrations at Lambeth Palace. I was there on behalf of my fashion brand Labels Are Limitations®. This took place on 28/06/2016.

Below is my capture of the palace. Let me know your thoughts.
