Believe it or not, I now Tweet. (I can’t believe I am saying that!) Find me @RTalibart.
I was out photographing the floods again today but I thought I’d ring the changes here with a shot from last Friday. Traffic light trails around Seven Dials in Covent Garden, London.
PS For those who were curious after my post yesterday, I told her it would be better if she learned to take pictures with the camera she had, showed her the HDR button on her iPhone and invited her to join my camera club!
Last year I bought my husband a helicopter flight with The London Helicopter. We finally got around to booking it earlier this summer.
I love helicopter flights. I love the change of point of view and the crazy angles you don’t get from an aircraft.
Photography is challenging. Windows are not where you want them and never clean enough; viewpoints disappear before you have time to frame them; and then there’s those pesky reflections.
It doesn’t stop me trying though.
We were blessed with a clear afternoon, luckily. It was so much fun seeing parts of London we know well from a whole new perspective.
This was not my first helicopter sightseeing experience. We have taken a ‘copter over the Grand Canyon.
We have also enjoyed a flight over Kauai’s spectacular Na Pali coast.
And, perhaps most spectacular of all, a flight over Volcanoes National Park on Hawaii’s Big Island.
I kept the crazy angle in the next shot, to show that it was taken from a helicopter.
I was much happier seeing this from a helicopter than on foot!
I would love to do a ‘doors-off’ flight next. I think I am hooked.
