I’ve been ill this week so unfortunately I haven’t been able to take any new shots. Instead, I’m finally getting round to putting up these from last weekend when I was on the South Bank. From these, you wouldn’t even have an inkling that it’s November. You might from my lack of voice, though.

Real Food Market


(Can you tell I really, really miss bread?)

The Real Food Market is another example of making fresh, local produce accessible in the city. We’ve already taken a look at Chiswick Farmer’s Market, but the Real Food Market is right at the heart of London, on the South Bank. Located just behind the Royal Festival Hall, there is a wide range of products on sale to suit most tastes. We tried brownies and churros, but the savoury offerings looked (and smelled) amazing too. Check it out on the first weekend of every month.



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.
