saturday afternoons, london

January 24, 2011











. . . . . . . . . . . . .

sometimes you have to do it on a whim. load up the holga with 12 shots of film, grab your coat and a hat, and get out there for a late afternoon walk. not think too much about it, just shoot some photos and have some fun. because otherwise, you might’ve missed the part where the sun came out from behind the thick grey clouds that cover london in january. and you wouldn’t have enjoyed that little bit of light before the sun set at 4:15pm.

winter can be tough, the days don’t seem much longer. but it’s good to get out there and walk around.

    Winter is tough, especially January. Glad you got some sun though, think it must have missed my part of the city!

    Hi Brian – I’ll echo others – Coffee and croissants? Sold out of a window? Where!? Pretty please? Shots are lovely as always. I love the London you see.

    may I give it a little guess, since I thought I recognised those croissants?!
    the eastern end of Columbia Rd?

    Something about the one with the wall and shrub is very intriguing, I like it!

    lovely shots, fills me with wanderlust…but sunset at 4.15? wow, in Australia the sun never set till after 5.
