I’m always a fan of an impromptu photowalk so when Richard Harris invited me to hang with his friends Jess, Jonathon, Ed, Zsuzsa and Koray I jumped at the opportunity. It was literally my first day out with the new Canon 7D so I was still getting adjusted to the multitude of functions it offered. To make the process easier I tend to photograph still objects such as buildings until I find the perfect angle and then play around with shutter speeds to get the perfect snap first time.

We strolled around the backstreets of Oxford Street and then onto the bohemian paradise of Fitzrovia. I’m still completely enchanted with the way neighbourhoods and areas of the city flow into each other, as one architectural style slowly takes over and dominates the view. At first we found ourselves surrounded by Victorian architecture (referring to the reign of Queen Victoria) and as we moved closer to Russell Square classic Brutalist structures such as the Institute of Education took over.

Zsuzsa was kind enough to snap this pic of me outside the police station in Fitzrovia with a funky little wall mosaic. Still loving my Bailey Nelson specs which is surprising as I have never found a pair I stuck with for more than a few months. Sometimes you just gotta find a style that suits you rather than just following the latest trends 🙂
