On Saturday I hoped onto a train to London about lunchtime and hot footed it down to Covent Garden for a photographic walk around the capital with Maplin. We started in Covent Garden and ended in China Town taking photos, learning photography tips from the lovely Kaye Fordtography and took a different look at London.
I’ve spent quite a lot of time in this area over the years but this time walking around I noticed things that I’ve never seen before. The crest above the walkway on the Royal Opera House, the roof top Garden terrace on the main court yard, the multicoloured macaroons in Laderee, the brightly coloured buildings around Neal’s Yard, and most of all, people having fun and going about their day happily exploring London just like me.
I loved the candid moments, although I’ve found I can be quite rubbish at capturing them and making them look good even after our masterclass. This is something I really need to work on more. After finishing our walk around London we made our way to B- Bakery. It’s a beautiful bakery that does a spectacular Afternoon Tea with savoury and sweet treats galore with a few flat lays thrown in for good measure.
The afternoon was thoroughly enjoyable, and it reaffirmed my love for photography – I have to get out and take more pictures without feeling like I’m intruding.
Do you love photography, been to London recently or have you been to B- Bakery and loved it? Let me know in the comments below.
