My New Endeavour Gets In The Way Of Productivity

 

It has now been a while since I left the city for either bushcraft or a photography trip. This is because I have decided to put my head down and do some more hours at my day job so that I could buy a motorcycle.

Seeing as I will be staying in England for quite some time and travelling around the UK is quite pricey. I figured that it would be a good short-term as well as long-term investment to get myself a motorcycle license. Even having a 125cc bike, for now, will enable me to travel cheaper, easier and more spontaneously. Generally, it will be a time and money saver, after the initial investment. More importantly – a helper to maintain my creativity, productivity and thirst for exploration.

 

Bike

I will be taking my CBT test later on this week which will be followed by a full licence on the later date. I already have a Honda CBF125 waiting for me to purchase it – if all goes well, by the end of this month. It’s a quality bike that is relatively cheap to maintain. It has a selection of saddle bags for all my gear and insurance is cheaper than I expected for the first time rider of my age. I can not wait to have it parked in my garden.

 

Photography

Of course, my decision has had an effect on my photography and productivity. I work a fair bit more than I was three weeks ago. So, it is often that I feel too tired or unmotivated to get out and photograph. But knowing that it is all for a greater cause helps me to stay with my head levelled. I’m working towards a personal target that I know will be a great benefit. This helps me to stay focused and keep my head down. Even though, every day, I want to leave from here.

 

So, as I haven’t left London much during the past month. I have been keeping up my productivity by assigning myself to a variety of personal projects that I can do in the city. Also, whenever I had the energy, I have been going out and making up some obscure personal tasks. Such as, photographing captive zoo animals whilst trying to make them look wild. This time, I decided to photograph some cityscapes around London. I don’t usually do cityscapes. And every corner of London has been photographed a billion times over. I still thought that it would be nice to have a few of those images with my name on it.

 

 

Here are a few of Londons cityscapes and famous landmarks.

 

The Millenium Bridge from two different perspectives. I was not sure which one I would like more.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is a statue known as ‘Bullet From A Shooting Star’. It had been placed near the┬áNorth Greenwich Arena. I had no clue that I would have to climb over two tall fences to get to it… Right in front of the cameras.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am not sure which one I like more.

From there I would just walk along the River Thames and capture any interesting compositions I come across.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I will definitely do this more often in the future. Cityscapes have never been one of my interests but sometimes it can be fun to photograph.
