A picture from my last days in Germany, before coming back to London. The lines of this old staircase were really appealing to me. I went for b&w because I think it added to the mood of the scene, bringing more emphasis to the shapes and getting rid of color distractions.
Picture taken in Singapore Zoo’s Night Safari. Even shooting at high ISO (3200), the 80mm focal length and 5.6 aperture forced a long exposure (1.5 seconds), which resulted in the motion blur due to the train (and birds!) movement. Even if the picture looks funny and a bit surrealistic, there is barely no post-processing here (apart from some cropping and the necessary noise reduction in order to fix the high ISO artifacts).
Hope you enjoy it!

Once all the sunlight was gone and I had taken the compulsory twilight-at-the-Thames shots and played a bit with light trails, I felt like I deserved a beer, and so headed to Covent Garden piazza to meet a friend there.
