Been a bit since I’ve been here. My blog has kinda become the red-headed stepchild of my life. I am torn between devoting more time to it or simply cutting back to a few posts a year. But I thought I would rear my head here today and share my giddiness about my latest trip.

It’s coming on two weeks now since returning from my London visit and I’m still on a high about it. My first solo trip overseas since I was a teen (many years ago!). And it was great. I realized I am just as intrigued with London as I was the first time. As I walked down the street from my hotel, the Fall leaves crunching under my feet, I felt an easy excitement of being where I belonged. This is similar to how I feel about NYC. London is such a mecca of cultures, style and beauty. It is definitely a world unto itself.

Big Ben-3Thames

My sole goal was to immerse myself in the surroundings and to photograph whatever I gravitated towards. True to my nature, I planned out an itinerary for each day, but only listed areas, not specific places. This allowed me the freedom to venture out and simply explore those areas.

ShoreditchBrick Lane

London is such a vibrant city, full of life. The city just oozes a cool energy and vibe, it’s hard not to feel there is a bit more swagger in your step by simply being there. This time around, I got to delve more into Camden Town and Shoreditch. Both places are teeming with street art and vintage fashions. Some of my fave things.

Leeke

Leeke Street Tunnel was on the top of my list to check out. I’d seen lots of photos of the tunnel on the web, but my first sighting of the place still sent my heart a flutter. I love to see graffiti splattered walls! And I don’t mean crude tagging and profanity laced images, I mean art….with spray paint. The colors always fill me with joy and Leeke Street did not disappoint. In fact, the only thing that did disappoint me was that the tunnel wasn’t long enough!

Beatles

I also did a day trip to Liverpool. This day wasn’t really about photography, it was more about discovering the place where my beloved Beatles came from. I saw the places they grew up, the infamous Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields and got to hear some music in The Cavern Club, where the magic began. Just being there brought tears to my eyes.

Highgate

A visit to Highgate Cemetery, which I wanted to see on the last trip, became a reality this time around. A place of such eerie beauty. Old tombstones, many leaning and askew and covered in ivy, created a darkly romantic scene. I could think of no better way to usher in the month of October.

So much to see and photograph in London, it was almost overwhelming, just being in the middle of it all. Sometimes, I had to put the camera away and let myself absorb it with all my senses. Five days was hardly enough to take everything in. Which most likely means, another trip will be planned soon!…
