La Défense is a business area in western Paris, It’s full of interesting architecture that is perfect for photography. It gets very busy in the lunch hour (between noon and 2pm) so it’s best to avoid these times if you don’t want people in your shots.
This is one of the exhibitions at the Jewish Museum in Berlin. There are 10,000 faces made from steel, and they are dedicates to all the victims of violence and war. Amazingly you’re allowed to walk into the exhibit, although people rarely do.
The beach of Dungeness is littered with abandoned fishing boats that have rotten over the years, leaving some interesting relics which cry out to be photographed. Dungeness is classified as Britain’s only desert by the Met Office, so you know it’s going to be some interesting terrain! The beach is a combination of shingle and pebbles, so you’ll need some decent footwear. The area is quite exposed, so it pays to take some warm clothes, just in case.
Once you’ve gone into the galleries you’re not allowed to take pictures. However, they don’t mind you taking any from the ticket hall on the ground floor. Luckily the ticket office is in the perfect spot to get a shot of the entire building!
This is a very popular stop to shoot Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. The best time is during the golden hour, but you may need to get there early to get a good spot. Tripods are allowed, but be careful as there’s a pavement that runs along the Thames, and it does get busy, so you’ll need to watch your gear.
The bridge over Poplar station looks great at any time of the day, but it’s truly at its best when the sun is shining or just as it’s going down at the end of the day, as it brings out the reflections in the curved glass surrounding the bridge.
