When we planned a short trip to Scotland earlier this year in May, we had absolutely no idea that in less than six months not only we’ll decide to move up North, but we will buy our first house in a place where we started our journey....
It was productive month for me, the one I will remember for a long time. That's because we had fantastic holiday and sailed on a tall ship for several days, discovered new city- Antwerp, which I immediately fell in love with, had few stunning photo shoots and I continued to be surprised by the beauty of London, this month I discovered few lovely places in town I've never known before.
June was rich with major events for me. Firstly, I celebrated my 10th anniversary living in London, then I visited the Seven Sisters Cliffs to my own embarrassment for the first time in a decade, and was mindblown by the picturesque beauty of this place. Also for the first time I've presented my photography work to the 200 people audience at Pecha Kucha night. And finally, I went to see the Tate Modern Extension by one of my favourite architects Herzog & De Meuron
Two bank holidays in May is a really good start for getting the holiday spirit.We've visited Scotland for the first time, had a photoshoot taken by the Baltic sea in Jurmala, Latvia. The last days of May we spent again up north - Whitby and Lake District have been added to the list of visitied places in UK.
Just before summer kicks in I want to pause for a second and and sink into the beautiful Spring we had this year in London. I personally feel the power of flowers, I get inspired by the slow awakening of the nature. I feel the similar awakening in my own creativity , the fact that days are getting longer boosts my productivity and desire to do more, to explore more.
I am a big coffee drinker. Every day two to three cups of coffee, and yes, I know it's a lot!So when something like Coffee Festival is happening in London- I am naturally get very interested. Especially, considering the fact, that I wanted to visit this festival for several years in a row now. And every year I managed to miss it. But not this time!
The shortest month of the year was pact with events- 3 birthdays, Chinese New Year, exhibitions, design show, coffee dates and walks. It was a month of celebrations- the friendships, the arts and the end of the winter!
The first month of the new year has gone. This year I'm planning to fully dedicate myself to all kinds of crafts, to document it all and share here. I began this year with re-arranging and re-structuring my website, organizing my thoughts and ideas (and oh, I have so many of them!)- all of this is getting quite overwhelming at times, so I'm trying to break it down, take small steps and take it easy, so I can fully enjoy the journey!
Mountains are beautiful. Even in rain. Cloudy and wet weather is the perfect excuse to open up a book you've intended to read for a while. Our plan for the day was to make a good cup of coffee, sit comfortably by the window, reading the book, listen to the rain drops and watch how clouds move across mountains. The clouds are like thick, white blanket would reveal just little fractions of the mountains, for you to see, but for a very short time, and then it wraps up and hides the magnificent rock again. Needless to say, we ticked every box in our to-do list that day
November was such a busy month for me, so I somehow almost missed it. However this set of images reminds me it was very good month indeed- finding last splash of colours before it all goes is monochrome setting for a while. The November is the month for me when I prefer to have a cup of coffee indoors, rather then "to-go". Take it slowly, sit down and watch passers-by. Evenings are longer, so paint and brushes were out, and used a lot!
