Capturing Dusk and Nightime in London – Magical Moments, Right?

It’s no secret that I love cities at dusk—I always find the moment magical. Then, nighttime often offers the chance to see the other side of a place, and nightlights can be magical, no matter the season.

After a full day of exploring London, we were usually pretty tired, and the long ride back to the hotel on the slow Circle Line wasn’t much of an incentive to hang out very late—which you have to do in the summer, since sunset is typically around 8:30 p.m.

Yet, we took the time to check out a few main places after dark, including the Jubilee Gardens with the picturesque London Eye and views of the River Thames, Carnaby Street, Piccadilly Circus and the Palace of Westminster. I didn’t have a tripod (I rarely travel with one, too bulky and cumbersome) but I found a way to keep the camera steady to use a slow shutter speed. And the pictures turned out okay!

Exploring the world with my camera since 1999, translating sentences for a living, writing stories that may or may not get attention.

Firm believer that nobody is normal... and it’s better this way.
