There’s no place in the world that I’d rather be. Last year I was lucky to visit London a couple of times. The last visit in particular was a favourite, made even better by getting to see our friends. The visit to Androuet was the cherry on the cake. These first set of photos though were all taken a year ago. They have been sitting in my photo files for ages. I was waiting for the ideal time to post them, but I realised there’s no time like the present, so here they are.
They’re definitely not the best photos I have ever taken. However they are cherished memories and that was enough for me. I find that the more attached to a place or a person, the more difficult it is for me to take a picture. Does that ever happen to you? Have you ever felt overwhelmed when travelling? As in going to a place, when something hits you and you realise that that’s exactly where you want to be right at that particular moment? That’s exactly how I feel every single time in London. It’s such a great feeling, and yet so bittersweet because you know that one day you will be heading back. Am I making sense?
So when I’m visiting I rarely take any decent pictures. I’m never in the mood – I don’t know what it is. I know…I’m weird like that! This first trip was all about visiting museums once again. It was fantastic. I just love them – and the ones in London never disappoint. Ever. The Sutton Hoo exhibit was something else. I couldn’t stop staring at that mask.
These set of pictures were almost all taken exclusively at the British Museum. There were some beautiful exhibits, to which I didn’t do any justice in my shots, but they were too special to skip. The treasures in the vault were simply amazing.
