B028 – WE TOOK THE OLD STEED FOR A SPIN

So yesterday Anders and myself went out with the BMX to be the 15 year olds we used to be. after a good old session at the local skatepark we naturally ended up at the pub for a drink, which soon turned into 3, which of course turns into 5 (the last two weren’t with anders, he went to watch the boxing).

Any way check out the snaps.

B027 – THE NEW LENS

So yesterday I got a new lens, 24-105, now for a lot of people that doesn’t mean anything and for more people thats an OK lens. but up to this point I’ve been using a 50mm 1.8 (the cheap of all cheap lenses). So im pretty excited to now have some zoom, can start having abit more fun with my camera and hopefully improve my pictures. Any way heres a few snaps that Ive taken last night and then some from this morning.

Better snaps to come.

B026 – I HAVE NO IDEA ABOUT WINE

So last night I ended up in some wine bar, trying to guess the region, grape and something else todo with the wine and if you guess it right you get it for free. so I had a pop, I tasted a bit and said it was Californian from the north shore and a mean grape. the wine turned out to be from italy and “mean grape” isn’t actually a thing.

Heres a few snaps of the evening.

B025 – IVANKA

Today I thought, I would take pictures of my walk to work. Basically I couldn’t think of anything to photograph so just focused on my walk, I was looking at stickers on the walls and basically trying to take a photo of anything I thought might look kind of interesting.

B024 – Black and white

So this is my last week at work before I move on (goodbye barcroft). On my way home from work last night, In a bit of a rush I just took a few photos that i thought looked good. I like  black and white photos at the moment, so I think there will be quite a lot of black and white photos in London to come.

B022 – ITS A MONKEY THING

So yesterday, I was in camden being an absolute tourist which is something im not proud of but it does have its perks. After walking around for hours We (amy and me) ended up at London Zoo possibly the most expensive entry fee this side of ibiza, £30 per person. So I canned off all the other photos I took to show you three pictures of the monkey’s.
