london photoshoot: red and green

i am a colour snob and love identifying places of colour and vibrancy around london. when i spotted this gorgeous red crated wall by southbank, i was sure to flash out my camera!

pictures taken courtesy of kelly ;)

we walked down the bank of river and found this amazing wall of green moss. there was something about it which created a really dramatic background, almost as if the moss were seeping and crawling up the old brick wall.

see more of our photoshoot here and here!

it's the most beautiful time of the year...

gahhhhh....the sweet smelling spices

the sight of families lugging enormous christmas trees home

the festivities of christmas songs and jingles ringing in my ear

and of course the christmas lights twinkling in every direction

christmas is a bit different in my household this year with all the house renovations and my race to complete all my coursework and essays before the term ends and deadlines come to greet me. christmas seemed much easier and happier when i was younger - so carefree and no sense of plan needed for the coming year. it is definitely a learning curve to appreciate time and even stress - when time goes you can't get it back!

savour these moments and senses, especially the festivities of the month despite any last minute work before christmas. the countdown is ON!

london photoshoot: river bank.

continuing on with the photoshoot around london with kelly.... if you missed part 1, visit here!

this set of pictures were taken by southbank along the river thames. as much as it was a ince chilly, we braved the cold and i couldn't be more pleased with how the pictures turned out!

this was such an enjoyable location to shoot at with its industrial elements and mossy greens. not having shot anywhere like this before, we had such a blast experimenting with different angles and compositions.

it happened that i bought along my dad's old film camera that day so we snapped a few with it - can't wait till i drop it off to get it developed!


these images were taken below a bridge hence we made full use of the beautifully rusty beams and planks of wood, not to mention no one really stops under a bridge by southbank, so we bagged this area for a while and came out with these amazing shots!

and to top it all off, a beautiful spot with the river in the background (hi mr seagull!)

how i spent my black friday.

who would've thought inset day (teacher training day, simply meaning no school!) would fall rigggght onto black friday?! i really do commend whoever set my inset days this year. instead of shopping first thing in the morning, i decided to tag along with my fellow law-student-wannabe, suzy, to........

....the royal courts of justice!! and who else would've thought i would be so productive on a day free from education?! they say the people you hang around with really does influence you, and they may well be right on this one.

after having our bag checks and going through security, we were free (well not quite) to roam around the court and listen to any cases listed. we both went 'wow' at the thought we just entered the royal courts without even had any legal training or our presence being necessary at this place. 
nevertheless, we thought it would do us good to get some experience before studying law and so went to hear a case about commercial law.

it was quick however for us to turn around and remember that we were so close to the black friday sales so after an hour or so headed out to covent garden. the christmas spirit was ripe and blooming. check out the lego santa claus and reindeer!

we decided to lunch at slug and lettuce and went for the brave ultimate platter between just the two of us. wowzas, we must've been hungry for we cleared that in seconds! we paraded to oxford street to grab some offers only to find everywhere was absolutely packed full of people! unfortunately suzy had a driving lesson too so we headed back.

luckily for me though, black friday didn't quite end here! my friends happened to be at my local shopping centre so i went to go meet them where it was much much more chilled and less packed. glad to have picked up some bargains in the end ;)

also, the obligatory christmas lights and tree photo. ^
