A WHISTLE-STOP VISIT TO LONDON

22 April 2016 Oakley Street, Chelsea


Yesterday I went to London to work on a collaboration with my friend Irene as part of a uni project. We've wanted to collaborate for some time, so I'm excited to see what the final result is! (Some of the things I saw her filming were beaut). Honestly, the way life looks through a 50mm lense is so pleasing to the eye. Ask me to choose one lense to have on any camera and that's what it would be, every single time. We also met up with my other friend Mikela and ohhhh, what a great day. Honestly, I needed it!

We went to a range of places, and also managed to bump into Bob Geldof on the way back from Oakley Street where THE pink door is located (although we didn't realise it was at the opposite end of the road, until we were looking at every other door, realising that they were in fact, not pink). I had to get a picture in front of it because if I didn't...was I really there? Well yes, obviously I was. But I'm trying to actually get in front of the camera a little more? Nothing extravagant, but trying to stop being down on myself about my short stubby legs, and Michelin man torso. They are mine, and nobody can rock them quite like me! Anyway, enough talking about things that aren't really related to the pictures, and onto the pictures themselves!




Guys. GUYS. LOOK WHERE I WENT. Mikela suggested me and Irene pop along to King's Cross because I obviously wear glasses and have a scar. So...we did. Thankfully I had my round frames in my bag so they had to come out! Every single time I've been through King's Cross, I thought it cost to have your picture there! Turns out it only does if you want to buy the professional picture (basically I'm a cheapskate and if I can get something for as little as possible/free, then it's a winner in my books). Totally writing this post from Hogwarts now. EDIT: I only went to the wall, and in the shop at King's Cross...not the Harry Potter Studio Tour - one day....one day!

HASHTAG RAVENCLAW AKA MY HOME. Really need to pop back up to London when I have the money and time, because I need that Ravenclaw scarf in my life. Although it will be hard to want to buy all the Ravenclaw stuff from the shop.


It was such a great day with both ladies, filled with catch-ups, laughs and just a continuous chinwag. Days like this just make me glad to have the friends I do, and that you don't necessarily need to see them all the time (but to try see them more often). Having cameras watching my every move was a very strange feeling - especially when people were looking at me, wondering why I, of all people was being filmed! (No doubt I will do another post soon when I've basically made Irene give me any of the pictures she got - I need to buy myself a DSLR again just so I can have a nifty fifty back in my life).

  10. I LOVE that photo of you at Platform 9 3/4, especially because you got the scarf to whirl up in the air like that. It looks like you are really swishing right on through.

    50mm lenses are sweet. I repurchased one for my DSLR and it takes the most beautiful photographs!
