“When I look down I miss all the good stuff, when I look up, I just trip over things”-
To be honest, I was originally looking for an inspirational quote about life and “looking up” to match the meaning behind this picture however I found this quote by Ani Difranco quite amusing and reminded me of me.
But please, don’t look down all the time, there’s so many great things in life to look up to.
I know, I’ve been away for a while, but boy have I been busy.
Thankfully I have still found time to take a few photo’s and along with my fondness for photographing market stalls, I now have a thing for photographing bikes too! London has some very cool looking bikes absolutely everywhere and I’m convinced people chain them to lamp posts just to show off the bikes’ coolness cause I rarely see people in London actually riding these pretty little things!
Anyways, more photo’s to come soon.
Walking along Oxford street, London, when in the distance I saw this young man and thought WOW he looks interesting I’d love a photo of him. I said this to my friend, and knowing I didn’t have the confidence to stop this guy and ask for a photo, he did it for me. Although in a rush my friend grabbed him, explained that we’re street photographers and he allowed me to take the shot. A very friendly young man. Not much conversation was exchanged but he shook our hands and made way. I learnt something that day- if you don’t ask you don’t get.
Another evening wandering the streets of London with a friend. For the life of me I simply can not remember where we was when I took this shot, all I know is that we got a lovely banana and chocolate waffle afterwards!

Ramillies St, London.
This is my homeboy Calvin. We met up just the other week after a long stalemate. You see, We got this love hate relationship going on. Turns out he’s still got a lot of love for me and we had a good time at the cinema.
Anyways, I summoned Calvin to a market in my hometown so I could take this shot. There is something about markets I absolutely adore. Not so much the stock on offer, but the busy hustling and bargaining between seller and buyer. Its’s also a great place to people watch!
