London on an Orange Brompton

A few days ago I took my Brompton out with me for a little errand. I took lots of photos my my Brompton (you wouldn't expect anything less) but for once I am going to spare you from those. Below are a few of the photos I took of the touristy bits. 

Over a few years now my big camera has come out less and less on pretty much all my adventures. I have used a trusty iPhone 11 since it came out for lots of reasons. 

The first was that the video is very good. I can get 4K video at 60 frames a second, that is stabilized and looks clean and sharp. What's more, it can operate in low light. 

It is a similar story for stills. Excellent in low light and the wide angle is just nice to have for expansive landscapes or just to get more in the frame. 

A Brompton really is an excellent way to get around London and see the sights. The amount of ground you can cover is huge even at a relatively sedate pace. There is certainly more competition out there. Electric bicycles are definitely a thing now and there are more than a few that trump what is currently on offer from Brompton. I wonder what they have in development for the future? 

The one feature of London near the Thames is the amount of new development that has and continues to take place. New buildings are up all the time. Some, that once commanded incredible views, have been superseded by newer builds that are taller and now offer a much better view. Some of you out there in New York, Tokyo and Malaysia have told me that it is much the same story.  

The jury is still out for me on whether or not I like or dislike, The Shard? I still cannot make up my mind but I do always see to take a photo if it. 

Until next time, stay safe out there people.
