Howie photographs the Houses of Parliament

Digging through some more photographs, I found some old snaps of the Houses of Parliament in London, UK.

The second photograph is a panoramic which was composed from 49 different photographs stitched together to form one big panoramic. It took me about an hour to snap the 49 different frames and two police officers actually stopped and searched me. It was the first time I have ever been stopped and searched, and so I asked them, to their utter dismay, to fill in the stop and search form which they have to do if requested. It took them a while to go through every question, which was just enough time by that point for them to have kept me company to allow me to finish the rest of my snaps.

Howie photographs Hong Kong

It’s been a while since I’ve posted as I’ve been distracted by IRL stuff, but hopefully having dealt with those issues, I’ll be back on more. I wanted to share in the mean time some old photos I dug out and re-edited.

These shots of Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong were taken from the Peak when I went there in 2012. Earlier that day, it had been pouring which meant the usual low clouds over Hong Kong had cleared, offering a stunning panoramic view of the city, the harbour, and Kowloon.

The time difference between the first and the second photographs was around 30 minutes to an hour, with the clouds dispersing in the second shot, lessening the amber hue reflected back down onto the city.
