The last dregs of summer

Recently, my body has been going to great lengths to tell me I’m burning out. I decided to use my day off yesterday to go out with my camera, and I feel much better for it. I walk when I need to think and process and de-stress, and yesterday that was just what I needed. I walked from Camden to the South Bank via Holborn and Waterloo Bridge, then home again via Blackfriars Bridge and Chancery Lane. It was such a beautiful day yesterday and I challenged myself to use only my 50mm prime lens, because I never use it. I think I did alright and it’s always good to nudge myself out of my comfort zone every now and then.



Zebras and baboons and birds, oh my!

Here are a few more shots from safari. Those baby elephants were absolutely gorgeous to see. They were so cute and playful. We stopped for a good few minutes to watch and coo.

More photos to come, including some of Mombasa, forest villages near Mtwapa and a Maasai village near Amboseli!



Larks in the park

Photos from messing around in Regent’s Park on bank holiday Monday. After a lunch of Indonesian cuisine and gelato from Scoop, Bethany and I met up with a few of my friends in Camden and we went and had some drinks in the park. Look how earthy and tree-loving they are.

I’m off to Kenya tomorrow night. I hope that when I get back, life takes on a slower pace. I miss having time to spend doing nothing – this week has been quite crazy in a number of ways and looking back at these photos is making me pine for the time when I had more opportunities to be silly in parks and other places. Won’t complain – Kenya awaits.
