One of the main reasons I set up this blog was so I had a home for all of my photos. I love taking photos and capturing the things I’ve seen.
I like photos that show life as much as they show a city. I’ve been to Paris a few times and have photos of all the landmarks. Walking to find ridiculously cool concept store Merci I found an antiques market. I really like this photo because of the colour and simplicity.
I’m also obsessed with travelling. I’m a chain travel planner; the second I’m back from one I’m planning the next.
I spent a long weekend in Nice and loved spending time along the beach in the Riviera sunshine. I thought these deckchairs and parasols looked like a retro Orangina advert. I love how timeless it is; I could easily believe they’ve had exactly the same design on the beach since the 1950s.
I love churches so much and take a lot of photos of them, as anyone who follows my Instagram will know. The Duomo in Milan is one of the most amazing I’ve ever seen. It’s not like any other cathedral but is so huge and impressive. I’ve never seen so much detail on the exterior of a building before.
Last year I went to Thailand as a 30th birthday treat to myself. Despite not being much of a beach person I spent a week between the islands and took this photo on Koh Phangan. It looks so peaceful and deserted from this angle, but there was actually a hotel directly behind me!
Getting this photo was literally an epic adventure. Four days on the Salkantay Trek in Peru, battling with altitude sickness, and getting up at 3am to be on site at 6am, but it was worth it. It had rained on and off all week, but we had the most perfect morning. Macchu Picchu is otherworldly.
I took this at the sik sik yuen wong tai sin temple in Hong Kong. The island had the most unbelievable tower blocks – all accommodation and 50 stores high. That’s the same height as the buidings in Canary Wharf. I loved the contrast between the tradition and also the modern ways of life. And how everyone and everything lives together cheek by jowl.
Like with my Paris picture, I think there’s only so many photos of the Empire State Building that can be taken when you’re in New York. There’s so much more to see, and the High Line is one of the best new attractions. It had been poring it down earlier in the day but this resulted in the most amazing sunset and streets that reflected the rays. The sun was setting over the Hudson River and resulted in the most stunning sunset. I adore the colours in this picture so much.
I’ve been to Singapore a few times but it was only on my third visit I finally found the famous merlion. Part mermaid, part lion, all fountain. I love taking photos of moving water. They don’t always turn out well but I think this one is pretty good. The city state doesn’t have the most landmarks, but the merlion is it’s symbol. And the banks behind are basically it’s main industry.
