It’s been a long time since I’ve post any new photos, so I’ve decide to shot a little travel photography of the London Court. Smacked between St. George Terrace and Hay Street, London Court was built in 1937 mainly for commercial and residential purpose. The design mainly copy the architecture of Tudor time (history 101: if you don’t know what Tudor is remember bloke name Henry VII who create Anglican Church because he wanted to divorce his wife and marry a new one). They their aim is to bring the piece of England in Perth. Apparently they missed home too…
For further information about London Court, just Google it.
So where was I… Ah yes. I went there around 6 PM after work. All of the shop already closed, and only few people passes by. So here I am had the Court all to myself. I took out my DSLR and took a couple of test shot.
It was quite dark, so I’ve decided to take of my lens hood (there’s no flare anyway) to get more light and keep my polarizer on my lens. I toggle between f/7.1 – f/9 and 200 ISO – 400 IS0 (sometimes 100 ISO, I don’t really remember). I used the all trusty Canon EF 17-40mm f/4 L lens I’ve brought with me and start shooting like nuts. Half way I’ve notice I really wanted to get motion of people walking by on my photo, but I didn’t bring my tripod (figures…). So I set my aperture a bit high, not too much in order me to get a bit of motion and still able to reduce the shake.
After a while I decided to called it a day and go home, to tired to go anywhere else.
