I went into London yesterday. And I took some pictures. First I went to this place in Grosvenor Square. I took all the pictures with the FxCamera app on my phone. Which makes them look sorta polaroid-y. Which I quite like and I have figured out why that is: because it takes square pictures I have to focus more on what I'm taking pictures of and how I position that in the frame.
With my normal camera I can just generally shoot what I'm looking at and then crop it later if necessary. But I can't do that with this app. Makes it a fun challenge! You can see the images larger in this set over on Flickr + a few extra ones. :-)
Some patterns I saw on the Tube.
A guy sat down across from me on the Tube and pulled a Rubik's cube which he solved in what seemed like 30 seconds! The he put it back in his pocket and pulled out another one with 5x5 squares on each side and starting solving that one! I really wanted to lean over and ask him "Is there a system to this?!" But I didn't. I get the impression that talking to people on the Tube is frowned upon. Also, I'm kinda shy. ;-)
Bits of neon spotted on Oxford Street!
