24th December 2022

We recently had a few inches of snow in London. Almost perfect timing for the Xmas period! 🙂 The snow in London didn’t last long, but it was enough to cover the city with a fluffy white blanket. Which is always a lovely scene to behold. Last year as well, we had one day of snow, and I documented it in a YouTube video. I was still living close to the city...

Street Photography in Istanbul | Photographing the world Episode 1 Youtube
21st September 2022

The new “Photographing The World” Series starts here, and we kick off with Street Photography in Istanbul! This video was long due, but I came back from Istanbul with 6+ hours of footage and almost 1Tb of photos… All over the place. I was to give you a full-length docu-vlog of about 20-25 minutes. But then I thought a small pill format would have been much more palatable (pun intended). So here...

Snow in London photowalk
3rd February 2021

First (and so far only) day of snow of 2021, so of course I had to go out for a Snow In London photowalk! I love the snow, maybe because it is always been so rare in every city I have lived in. In Florence, for example, people still talk about the snow of 1985… This rare! The river Arno also froze, and you could walk over it, so that’s why the...

London Fog Photography
20th November 2020

Today we’re looking at fog photography in London. In particular, a lot of cityscape and some street “fog photography”. We all have in our hearts the sight of beautiful landscapes in a thick fog or a delicate mist. But this has become rarer and rarer in the city. In London, for example, we now only have 2-3 days of fog a year. And so far, only 1 morning of fog in 2020:...

London lockdown photography | In Pictures
5th November 2020

London lockdown, again… England is entering its second national lockdown phase today as Coronavirus/Covid-19 cases have risen sharply. This gives me the opportunity to finally present my London lockdown photography project on YouTube. Back when I took the photos, I wasn’t producing content for my channel yet. So, unfortunately, I didn’t film my usual POV footage. But I did document the empty streets of London in these eerie images. I wasn’t too...

Richmond Park | Stag | The Limited 10
24th October 2020

Yesterday I went out with my friend Martyn for a photographic morning with Richmond Park deers. This park just outside of London is famous for its deers but also has a nice view over the city (albeit far away) that is perfect for sunrise in some periods. It’s not the only park with deers, there’s at least Bushy Park as well, but here seems to live the largest colony. Autumn is the...

hottest day in London
6th August 2020

OK, what do you do when is the hottest day in London (36C)? Well, obviously, you go out and enjoy the weather! And shoot a few pictures along the way! At least, that’s what I did.I like hot weather. Very much. It should go without saying because I’m half-Italian. But many people who grew up in hot weather conditions, actually don’t enjoy them much. Not me. The “normal” temperature in London during...

Coronavirus Covid London lockdown: Trafalgar Square
1st April 2020

Today, the London lockdown is still not as strict as in other cities around the world, but it is a lockdown nonetheless. The measures to fight coronavirus have imposed restrictions on travel, both internally and between countries. And therefore, many places now look like scenes from an apocalyptic Hollywood film. Particularly in those areas where flocks of tourists usually cram every empty corner, the view is very much on the eerie side....

Oxford street photo walk | panning
25th February 2020

Writing Oxford street might be a bit of a clickbait if you were looking for photos in London. But this is about street photography in Oxford, so… Anyway, here I am talking about another photowalk I attended.It’s always great to go out, meet and shoot with like-minded individuals. I also often meet up with new groups. I love to connect with as many people as possible, hear new stories and learn something...

London New Year fireworks
1st January 2020

Last night was the first time I went out to photograph London’s New Year fireworks. In previous years, either I was not even in London, or I decided to enjoy a better view and not wait in the cold from the comfort of my sofa. But not last night. I teamed with my friend Martyn to go out and scout for a place South of London. The main idea was to find...

Smithfield Christmas Auction
24th December 2019

Early this morning, like every year, the Smithfield Christmas auction takes place outside Hart’s Of Smithfield in London’s meat market. ⚠︎ Please read carefully before proceeding! The Christmas auction was a butcher shop sale. If you’re vegetarian/vegan or get offended or upset by the view of raw meat, I heartily recommend you go back to the home page and read a different article. I would never want to trouble you and trust...

Giant rainbow flag carried by parade participants at London Pride
7th July 2019

Like I try to do almost every year, I attended the London Pride again in 2019. It’s always a colourful parade and a full day of joy, fun, quirkiness, and love. And in these past 2 years, I also went with the clear intention to shoot some good portraits. For somebody as shy as me, the London Pride is always a great chance to do so, because people expect to be photographed....

warm sunset over West London
21st June 2019

I often get my best results when I follow my gut feelings rather than plan for something. This story is a good testament to that. Since I returned from beautiful Georgia (more on that in a future post), the weather in London has been pretty grim and depressing. It rained almost every day, and it was generally cold and grey most of the time. This day was no exception. And frankly, there...

panorama of London surrounded by fog
24th February 2019

We just had 3 days in a row of morning fog here in London. It was all over Instagram as people were excited and filled their stories and feeds with London fog photos (#londonfog). Of course, I published a couple of stories myself on my IG (@fabienb). But I haven’t posted on my feed because most shots I took were wide landscape shots, and these look tiny in the app. Instead, I’m...
