Very lovely photo of the Cenotaph Fai, just before it became filled with wreathes. I love the movement of the London bus on this one!! I can never "do" these sorts of shots :))

Cheers, Amelia

Great shot Fai! I love moving subjects like a bus or train on a photo! It's so much alive!

Best wishes from Ria

Thanks a lot John, Sekica, Pivatana and Ria for your comments!

Amelia, thanks, this was taken around 13 hours before the ceremony, difficult to imagine I was there when I was watching it in Sunday morning. It's really easy to do, just find something steady to rest the camera on and set it to shutter priority (Tv) and shoot to your heart's content :) You can use a flash for more dramatic effects.

Best wishes, Fai
