Panoramas of the London Skyline – Photos from the Skylounge at Doubletree Hilton

Posted on March 4th, by Peter Parkorr in Britain, London, Picture Perfect. 4 comments

Today I’m sharing photographs of London from the Skylounge at DoubleTree Hilton, near London’s Tower Bridge. I popped back the morning after a Traverse event last year to reclaim my forgotten jacket (which now resides in Edinburgh after being forgotten there too) and got some great panoramas of London from the rooftop bar.
If there’s one thing I can say about London, it’s that it looks pretty in the sunshine.…


Fish-eyed Views of London from a West End apartment

Posted on January 23rd, by Peter Parkorr in Britain, London, Roaming Resources. No Comments

Last November I popped down to London from the North, to attend WTM 2013 at the ExCeL.

I teamed up with a few friends and bloggers to share a City Marque apartment in central London and managed to capture a few London landscape photos with my new fish-eye lens.

I met lots of friendly faces on my visit to Bologna for Blogville last summer. It’s one of the highlights of travel. To learn about other cultures, hear what people have to say, and to connect over shared interests – often the travel itself. (And food – let’s not forget the food.) During an action-packed week in Emilia Romagna, I managed to snap a few photo’s of the folks I met and spent time with, including Italian people and fellow bloggers.…

Tis the season to be merry, and I decided to wish you Happy Christmas in travel photos from places I visited in the last 12 months!
