Good morning, all!
Oh, how fun running a blog is. I’ve never been this excited about something before. Maybe it’s because I’m in control. Perhaps, I’m a control freak? I just adore sharing my photographs, with people who genuinely care. I’m an avid lover of photography, and wish for nothing but to prove myself, that I am Here, that I am a Photographer.
As you know, I adore London. And felt the need to reflect on it again. Don’t worry, I plan on posting more recent photographs, but let me just reminisce for now. I’ve been reflecting a lot recently.
I took this as I was leaving the Tower of London. My camera was by my side at all times whilst visiting this vast city. What an extraordinary place. People flocking from all angles, desperate to learn something new, something they didn’t read in History Books. Seeing an actor dressed up as Henry VIII, casually conversing with children was quite a shock to the system; I quickly ran away.
The cobble stones beneath my feet, were walked upon by many historical figures, hundreds of years ago, and that is quite an extraordinary thought. It was an immense opportunity to explore the Tower Of London. Tower of London is crawling with history, history that I was so lucky to discover. Thankfully, with little money I had, I purchased post cards that I still own to this day, more so as a keep sake, a reminder. Tower of London is second on my list of tourist destinations I undeniably relished. All of the staff were wonderful; they were never not smiling.
There’s something about London, that feels homely. Don’t get me wrong, I struggled with the crowded streets and packed tube carts, (and the plane ride, but that’s a whole other story) but I enjoyed the atmosphere. Perhaps it was the sheer idea of ACTUALLY being in London, that thrilled me. It was my very first venture out of Ireland, and it surely won’t be my last.
I shall never forget my visit to dear old London, a place I would gladly spend the rest of my days. Perhaps in the suburbs, away from all the hustle and bustle, with my 125 cats. Ah, Home sweet home.
If you ever do get the chance, please visit London. I promise, it is absolutely, undoubtedly, and completely worth it.
‘There’s nowhere else like London. Nothing at all, anywhere.’
