Photos by Justin Sainsbury - A 'Right Royal Do'

We're told a million people lined the Royal wedding route yesterday. Here's my take on just a small handful of visitors enjoying the day. I was happy to work along the fringes, letting chance happenings, encounters and a little bit of instinct guide me around. Visiting a small hidden banked copse along the edge of the Mall, two pubs and the Ambassadors' chauffeur car park seemed worth-while trade-offs to the spot I'd established outside the Abbey earlier in the day.

This makes me squirm.

I like the way the crown thingy happens to hover over the kid's head and I like the guy's outfit, if not his old bike.

I like this one and the next

Like I said for the first photo

There's a lot going on here

Oh dear!

And finally...

These are just some of what I captured.

Photos by Paul Treacy - Youthful exuberance in Trafalgar Square

Youngsters getting frisky in Trafalgar Square on a warm spring day. I remember how that feels.

I post these as a celebration of young love and frivolity.

This is my favourite of my recent meanderings. I find it quite poignant.

I'm about to head out to London Bridge and surrounds again today for a few hours. The sun's shining brightly and it's lovely and warm. I expect there'll be a lot of people about. The usual mix of Londoners and tourists. I may have some fun looking at these two very different groups and how they interact with the city itself. Tourists tend to meander the streets aimlessly and at a gentle pace which annoys the locals who pace sternly about the place at a rapid rate and with purpose, unless it's lunchtime when they too can become tourist like as they slow down for a while. And on days like today they can become quite flirtatious amongst themselves. All very amusing.

But I'm always on the lookout for a shot like the one above. An isolated individual outside of the herd for whatever reason.

Embedding Tutorial

Richard and Justin

We're using HTML code, not the standard "Compose" or "Rich Text" option.

When you expand your image in your PS archive or gallery, you will have the option to "get link". Click it then go down to expand and you'll have small, medium or large options, click large and copy the code. I'd suggest not clicking the box "Disable "Buy" button on priced images."

Here are the instructions. If I were to simply type them they would not be visible and that's why I've created a graphic file. (Sorry about the spelling mistake. Can't be arsed doing it again.)



Tired of working in isolation and craving community, the three of us have come together in a joint venture to collectively grow and develop our skills. We are in the earliest stages and are excited at the prospect of collaboration through editing, mentoring and group projects. We are using the Virtual Agency facility at PhotoShelter which acts as a portal to show our work and so any sales generated go directly to the photographer concerned. Though this is not a commercial venture, we do hope to sell prints through our individual archives and we will soon have a bookshop where each of our books will be available to purchase. The main focus of this endeavour is to filter only the best of our work to the surface and thereby maintain a consistently high standard of contemporary street photography. Other disciplines in which we all work will be left to our individual archives.

Thank you for your interest. We hope that you will continue to visit us as we develop our project.
