2015 a year in Photos – Part 1 of 3

It’s been a busy year again of taking photographs across the South of England. This was the first year for a very long-time that I stayed in the UK for holidays visiting the wonderful seaside town of Bournemouth. 

Over 19,000 photographs taken, 3 exhibitions / galleries, 1 shop selling my prints and I started to dable in stock photography.

To make it shorter I have split it into 3 parts corresponding to the months of the year. This first part being from January to April 2015. Feel free to leave comments on which photograph you think is the best.

The year as a whole started off on the northbank of the Thames trying to get shots of the fireworks on new years eve and will finish at the same place though this time in a ticketed area near Blackfriars.

Below are the various months with the photos taken and the places visited. 

January
The month began on new years eve around tower bridge trying to get shots of the fireworks. The photograph below is where the Shard is counting down to 2015.
