London - a refreshing change

Photography for me is not just a job. It’s a passion, and one that I can’t seem to switch off. I’m constantly thinking about my surroundings and the light . Different angles, composition and stories to tell. And I’m glad that I brought my camera with me last weekend.

My sister is currently working on one of the tallest buildings in London - second tallest only to the Shard. 278m high, with a 360 degree view, 62 floors, and a lift that travels 8 metres per second.

We were excited to see where she worked and had the privilege to visit at the weekend. I loved the juxtaposition of old and new buildings, and the dizzying heights of the surrounding sky scrapers. The girls got to see the sights of London in miniature - they ‘signed’ some floor tiles, my sister photobombed her own photo, and when the early evening light came in, they literally had to usher me out!

It was one of those things where there is so much to see that you can’t quite take it all in. That is the beauty of photography, it allows you can soak in and appreciate what you’ve just experienced.
