Everyone’s got their happy place. This is mine.
This was my favourite hangout spot to write, work and relax. Bonjour Brioche in Belsize Park. It’s small, cosy, quiet (not as hectic as Ginger & White next door) and they have incredible food. Like really incredible.
This woman right here is one you should know. She is inspiring, funny, honest and simply amazing. Callie everyone.
I made it a habit to take a picture of everyone I met up with, but sadly I forgot a few people (You can see all of them in my London Vlogs though) – Samy wasn’t one of them. Although he was camera shy, he got his picture.
My London family. Tom and Ashley.
One of my favorite places in the whole world: The National Portrait Gallery. I love to spent hours in there. Getting lost in the different rooms. Watching people. Especially the ones who draw and paint in there. Such a beautiful sight.
The beautiful and sweet Sarah. One of those special people.
Kristine crashing my photo. The Orangery in Kensington Gardens is beautiful though.
One of the most amazing and unexpected things to happen to me during my month in England was the friendship with Kristine & Mia. They are like the sisters I didn’t know I needed.
When you’re at a photoshoot and need to use up the last shot on your Contax. The whole shoot with Anna & Mark will be on the blog soon.
Reunited with Laura & Julian after 10 years. And then I went on a 24 hour trip to Cornwall. Why not. It was glorious.
When your clients take selfies with your phone. That was one beautiful day.
Gail’s bakery in Hampstead. Very crowded, but pretty. And yummy.
This sweet soul. I cannot wait to see her again soon! Kat is the best. x
Another favourite that I visited regularly: Emphorium Bakery in Hampstead. They have the BEST Blueberry Cheesecake I have EVER had in my life. And I have had loads of cheesecake, believe me. Loads.
Plus they have Wifi. And very instagrammable tables. But no plug sockets, so you can only work there until your device dies. What’s up with that?
This wall in Shoreditch is now painted over. Very glad I got a picture.
The Wet Fish Café in West Hampstead. If you sit by the window there at lunch, the sun shines on your face.
I saw this artist standing around Hampstead a few times. Painting streets and people. It was lovely to chat to him. And I completely forgot to ask for his name.
Oh Artichoke. I miss you.
My beautiful Tash. I miss you too.
All images shot on Contax 645 and Nikon F80 using Kodak Portra 400H, Kodak Superia 200 and Ilford HP5. And probably some Fuji 400H too. Thank you Carmencita Film Lab for the scans!
