Houses of Parliament Photos
The Houses of Parliament lie on the north bank of the River Thames in the heart of the London borough of the City of Westminster and are the meeting place of the two houses of the Parliament of the United Kingdom - the House of Lords and the House of Commons. UK residents and overseas visitors can come and watch Parliament at work for free. Members of the public can attend debates on current issues or proposed new laws from the public galleries when the Houses are sitting.
With about 1100 rooms, 4.8 km of passageways and a fascinating mixture of both ancient and modern buildings offer Houses of Parliament many opportunities for architectural photography.
People usually start shooting large background Houses of Parliament pictures and then experiment with framing, lighting, and focus. Over time, it is worth revisiting the same sites to get closer images and take Houses of Parliament images with special details. Interesting effects are created by reframing the same building when the picture is taken at a different angle or time of day.
Houses of Parliament pictures on this website were taken in the late morning outside the palace and in the park when the sky was cloudy. We will revisit this gorgeous London attraction and shoot more Houses of Parliament photos under various lighting situations and at night time as the time of day can have an remarkable effect on a picture.
