So my business trip to America is now but a distant memory. Despite having very little free time I do feel I managed to pack a lot into my 6 days away (1 full day of which was travelling of course). I was only able to take my Sony NEX7 becasue of luggage constraints, but as usual, it didn’t let me down! The pictures that follow are a mix of mobile phone (Samsung Alpha) and NEX7 shots.

My Sony NEX7 and a bit of light painting

I had to pop out to the Post Office this morning and it was such a beautiful morning that I grabbed a few shots of Doctors Pond on my way back. This is a 3 shot HDR taken on my Sony NEX7 and processed using photomatix, lightroom, photoshop, with a bit of Nik Colour Efex Pro thrown in for good measure 😉

I was in London for some meetings today and grabbed today’s picture as I made my way to one of them. I do enjoy these vertical shots of buildings and had intended to make this a black and white shot, however, leaving this with its blue colour cast looked far better than the black and white conversion so I left it colour. It’s tricky photographing vertically up in the pouring rain, fortunately I was using my little Sony NEX7 and the glass isn’t as wide and therefore not as likely to get a large drop of rain landing on it…and a little luck helps.

I liked the pattern of lights on the building to the right – it reminded me of morse code, hence the title.
