I fell in love with my now husband on the doorstep of my flat one Sunday afternoon in Notting Hill. My flat in Notting Hill We had spent the late summer day sunbathing in Hyde Park watching the ducks and talking about nothing in particular. He had an ease about him that fascinated me.  He […]

A crash course on street photography in Tokyo

February 20, 2015

Visiting friends in exotic places makes travel that much sweeter but visiting a photography friend in a city as wicked as Tokyo is a whole other level of sweetness that I can’t describe.  While in Tokyo a little over a year ago (yes, this post is embarrassingly late!), I had the chance to hang out […]

London under beautiful light

February 4, 2014

“Sir, if you wish to have a just notion of the magnitude of this city, you must not be satisfied with seeing its great streets and squares, but must survey the innumerable little lanes and courts. It is not in the showy evolutions of buildings, but in the multiplicity of human habitations which are crowded […]
