The last of my weekend-trips this year (as far as planned), we headed up to London for a couple of days to visit friends of ours who live there. I was the photographer at Katrin’s and Mo’s wedding in Italy last year and now they’re expecting their first baby!
You can see the rest of their photo session here on my photography blog.
They live in a very cute area on the outskirts of London and we took some lovely trips to the surrounding areas.
We loved Waddesdon Manor house and the park and exhibitions.
Can you tell I like taking photos of flowers? I just love the quaint little market towns, the victorian houses and little gardens and of course the even older crooked little brick and wood houses in England.
We spent just one day in central London. I really wanted to visit Linley Sambourne house, because I’d read a book about the place some ten years ago and loved it. Not our most successful idea…after wandering around Kensington for an hour in the rain we eventually found the house. It was closed that day.
We then went on to visit the Victoria and Albert museum and the Science museum. Well, parts of it anyway. They are way too big to visit them both in an afternoon. The museums alone would be well worth another visit someday, so magnificent and beautiful.
I have a couple of days off from work and as the weather forecast very unobligingly predicts rain for the whole of next week, I’ll be spending them indoors, doing some much needed resting, reading, sewing, decluttering and working on my business. I have a few photoshoots lined up and also I haven’t yet given up the idea of opening a little online print shop before the year is over!
