The Great River Race 🛶🇬🇧
Back in early September i've witnessed the phenomenon of hundreds of rowing boats passing river Thames with the background view of Parliament and #BigBen on one side and #LondonEye on the other. A great event shot in great company of friends like Charles @bothhemispheres and Basil @basil_fore 👍🏻 This is a frame from a timelapse I'll share soon😉

That feeling ... even for a second😎 When you're standing on top of the world, at least it felt like it at the exact spot on the roof of @cheesegraterldn where the boss - Sir Alan Sugar - was standing on the intro of The Apprentice for a few seasons. It might be nothing for most but for me that day was quite something, a day I definitely won't forget ☺️🧀

Stairway to heaven 🎧
Love London at low tide, even if you don't want to get your shoes dirty like I was on my way for a sunrise shoot, still couldn't help but to grab a few sneaky handheld shots along the way, and yeah....blue hour always adds the drama🌃🕰🇬🇧

I'm quite pleased to say I've now successfully mastered the jacket technique in the Shard😃 Got no reflections pretty much 99% of the visible view down, quite pleased with that result😁

City landscape 🌆⛰⛰🇬🇧
View from Bokan rooftop bar in Canary Wharf, overlooking the south residential side of the aisle of Dogs, towards Greenwich, through Lewisham and hills of Westerham seen on the far horizon. That's the kind of landscapes I like😃👍🏻

Man vs pigeon🕴🏼↔️🕊Pigeon wins, steals the limelight 😂 Throwback to the day exploring Amsterdam with @_yaisyusman_ ✅These two towers where too impressive not to shoot them from both sides, of you scroll down on my about 3 weeks, you'll see a similar shot from the other side, wonder which one you guys like more ?🤔 #KLMTop10

🌍#TravelTuesday challenge: Name one place that WOWed you the most on your travels this year🥇😱
For me 😀👋🏻 it was #EspacesDAbraxas 😳 On the outskirts of Paris, in #NoisyLeGrand there's this place designed by Ricardo Bofill that defies the norm. When I walked in there, there was a moment I was literally speechless 😱Unfortunately it has never become as popular and high brow as London's Barbican, probably because of its location not being in the city centre. Nevertheless it's a place I want to go back to again and shoot more one day👍🏻😎🇫🇷

📽#MeetTheGramer 👋🏻Andreas 📲@meletispix ✅▶️Watch in 4k on my YouTube channel, link in bio↖️ ...so I wanted to test my new gimbal - Moza Air - and just wasn't feeling another abstract of London video as there's too many great out out there, so thought of making a brief introduction to someone I know, follow and recommend others and that's where Andreas came to help so we did a little video about him around #BigBen 🕰, #WestminsterBridge and #LondonEye🎡🇬🇧
Hope you like it. Comment and subscribe on my YouTube channel as I want to do more videos, not sure this will become a series but never say never 😉

From Essex with a view🏡➡️🏙
Lovely day out with the family on the hills of Essex🏔Was planning to finish the afternoon with a roast at the Gardeners Arms which is a pub in Loughton, right next to where I took this photo, but it turns out you can't just turn up there and the place was full, so we ended up with a local Dominos take away😜🍕Hope you had a great Sunday too👍🏻

Skyline on fire🔥🌆🇬🇧
Last night from the Greenwich Peninsula the view towards Canary Wharf was pretty lit⚡️With the seasons changing the sunsets as well as sunrises are getting more and more spectacular😃and happen at more reasonable hour to shoot😜#WHPseasons

Tilting temptation ⬇️🙈🌃🇬🇧
Sometimes the urge to point down takes over and I forget about keeping my lines and buildings architecturally straight😱...but it's just to much fun not to from time to time😁

🥁...and the best view poll results are.... flying above London 😜✈️ Ok, the Shard wins at 53% votes🥇but in all seriousness, when I was flying over London on my approach to London City airport on the @klm flight from Amsterdam, I had the best view of London ever😱Higher than I ever flew my drone because of legal limits, higher than the helicopter flight, it was just epic😁🛬🇬🇧Not watching the moon tonight, back to editing 🤓💻

New Instagram story update ➡️POLLS🤔 Ok, so I've just put #ShardView and #SkyGarden to the vote for you guys in my story - which has the better views in your opinion 🤔Looking forward to seeing your thoughts on it 😀If you remember I mentioned last night in my live story what's my best view of London, I think it's this one, it's from the residents rooftop terrace at #OntarioPoint , a 28th floor residential tower in Surrey Quays that I occasionally get access to thanks to a friend😉 Why I think it's one of the best if not the best view in London, it's because you see all major clusters in all 360 degrees from there and the alignment of #TowerBridge being bang in the middle between the Shard and the City of London, there's seriously not many views that can compete with this one, unfortunately it's just for the residents and their guests and not open to the general public, but at least you get to see it thanks to following me for which I am super grateful and hope it either gives you some value, info or just general enjoyment of seeing cool London views☺️🌇🇬🇧

#BigBen scaffolding update as of yesterday🕰⬆️🚧🏗 Was shooting an event last night on the top 18th floor of @urbanestuk #WestminsterBridge student accommodation, and as far as work places go, when you finish the assignment yet you want to stick around and shoot a big more after, well that means it must be a cool place😉👍🏻 As far as student accommodations go, they have the #BestViewInLondon

All lines lead to the #Shard 🔀📐
It's the focal point of London, tourists can use it for navigating, local photographers for inspiration while I like to both visit it's top viewing gallery for the views as well as have it in my skyline shots📸It's only been in London for a few years but already I can't imagine the city skyline without it🌃📐🇬🇧 Thanks to @sondaj85 for introducing me to this cool private residential view of London, definitely popping down again for a timelapse 😉👍🏻
