Night time ramblings

I love a good (and safe/well-lit) night time walk. I try to go on one at least once a week, but unfortunately it doesn’t always work out that I have a few hours to spare. I had to introduce myself and say one of my favourite things to do last week and I said, “I’m Annabel and I like walking.” 100% truth.



Long walks

Melie came with me on one of my long walks last week. We walked from Islington to Waterloo and it was a beautiful day. Usually I go off trekking the city on my own but it was great to bounce off someone along the way.

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.



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.



We two should be like a couple of hot tomatoes

I decided to give this blog a break from the barrage of Kenya photos and share instead some shots from my epic walk home the other day to Camden from London Bridge. It was such a nice evening and the prospect of sitting on a hot and sweaty bus or tube did not appeal. I stumbled across lots of sequins scattered across the cobbles and a beautiful sunset. Not a bad way to end an evening. It’s funny how your mood can change the way you look at things or, in this case, photograph things. I was in such a good mood when I took these and as a result they turned out quite…optimistic and romantic. I should try when I’m in a bad mood and observe the difference.
