Taken during my first attempt to do an all-nighter photog session. Needless to say I didn’t last the entire night! But the company was amazing, inspiring and aspirational. The people we were with were so very talented…and so very down-to-earth!

For those who fight to to preserve the peace, for those who give their lives so we can live ours, for those who stand against the wall so we have the freedom expand our horizons, we can never thank you enough.
I rarely take photos of myself. No wait. That’s a lie. I take selfies. But rarely post them. I have loads that I’ve taken, saved and never ever looked at again. In the same vein, I usually don’t like having my picture taken. I will take photos of other people but I will very rarely take a portrait shot of me seriously! I’m almost always pulling faces!
I do love this photo though. It was taken by my friend Anila. She’s quite clever ninja with the camera and I particularly love her portraits. She kept asking me to do star jumps (which incidentally are also known as jumping jacks!). I wasn’t going to because I’m such a klutz! I’m more likely to slip on landing and break something vital! So this was the closest Anila was going to get capturing me in a star jump pose!
I am (awkwardly) posing under Anish Kapoor’s At the Edge of the World II at the Everything at Once exhibition at the Store Studios at 180 Strand.
You’ve got to look at Anila’s amazing photos. She’s @sparkle71h on Instagram and her gorgeous portraits account is @akhussainphotography. I love her ballerina photos (you half expect the ballerinas to start pirouetting) and her portraits (I love how she captures the light in a person’s eye, it’s just magical!). She’s also generous with her camera knowledge. I know for sure that my light trail photos are much better after her tips! Give her Flickr page a visit!❤️
“Soon it got dusk, a grapy dusk, a purple dusk over tangerine groves and long melon fields; the sun the color of pressed grapes, slashed with burgandy red, the fields the color of love and Spanish mysteries.”

This photo was taken on Saturday. I still can’t get over how beautiful the sunset was!
This is one of my favourite streets in London. Mostly because it has so many museums and it leads straight to Hyde Park.
At the moment, it is the focus of of news reporting because of an incident. Apparently a car hit a number of pedestrians. If you want to keep updated on news, you can either google or follow this link to the BBC website.
As bad as it sounds, I’m just hoping this is just a serious road traffic accident instead of an act of terrorism.
Keep safe everyone. Stay alert.
UPDATE as at 19:00
The Met Police have advised that this was a road traffic accident. More details on the BBC website link I placed above.
But still…STAY ALERT. KEEP SAFE.
