Tian Tan Buddha overlooks Po Lin Monastery on Lan Tau Island, Hong Kong, China and if your out that way I recommend you make the effort to visit this place, it’s inspiring.
A cable car journey of about half an hour takes you to the outskirts of the monastery then it’s 268 steps to reach the Buddah which is bronze, 280 tons and 112ft tall. It truly is a beautiful place.
This image has been sitting on my hard drive for a while, although I did print off a large colour canvas print from another angle which currently hangs on my wall, I’ve decided this chap is worthy of a black & white version, so here you go.

The Gherkin, +Julia Anna Gospodarou & +Ian Good kindly organized a London photowalk, it was great to meet you guys that attended and my feet ached at the end of the day so we must have done a few miles.Anyway this is one of the shots I came away with and truth be told this is probably the first time I've attempted architectural photography and will probably try it again! #Gherkin

Taken this weekend in West Sussex, at a lavender farm just prior to its harvest. I'll post the colour version after this, it seems a shame not to share the intense purples.
Unfortunately the one thing I cant share with you is the smell and the bees.

LONDON Photowalk 2015 - Sunday Feb 15th - FREE event
http://blog.juliaannagospodarou.com/london-photowalk-2015/ I'm at the moment in lovely London for a photography trip and to film a series of lectures on B&W Fine Art photography for a well-known UK photography school and, as I was telling you, I thought to put up a small photowalk on Sunday February 15th to get to meet everyone. I will be leading it together with my friend and London based photographer +Ian Good  and we would be so happy to meet you all and shoot with you. 
It will be a FREE event, no fee or registration needed, everyone is invited to join us, We will move around the City of London and I will share with you tips on B&W, long exposure and architectural/urban photography. 
Meet us at 11am in front of London City Hall building by Norman Foster - on the Riverside, close to the Tower Bridge. We will be shooting til late afternoon or till we get bored : ) No specific equipment is needed, you can shoot with a high-end camera as well as with your phone. If you can though, have your long exposure equipment with you, as we will try to shoot some long exposures if the weather is fit for this. Let's shoot the city together!!!

Yes mate, think I'm going on this one, I've followed Julia's work for a long time, and it'll be the first time I've shot architectural - should be fun :)
