Tower Bridge and the Thames

I usually cross over London Bridge on my daily commute into East London. On this morning the Thames was particularly tranquil with good reflections of Tower Bridge and HMS Belfast in the distance. The weather has produced a soft mist which helps add depth to the scene.

I didn’t have my Fuji X-T3 with me so captured the shot below on my trusty iPhone XS. This goes to show the quality of photographs achievable with todays smart phones

Tower Bridge Re-Visited

I took the X-T3 and 16-55mm lens on the very next day. The scene is nice but not as strong as the tranquil calm of the day before. There is an argument for carrying a ‘proper’ camera as often as possible, but the iPhone can just about save the day when those rare opportunities arise
