Friday figments and photos: London life lately

I adore phography, but at the moment it isn’t loving me. Having travelled and blogged for a couple of years now with just my phone – I blame Orlando airport’s comfortable tables, so comfortable you leave your belongings there as if it was your own home – over Christmas I finally got a new camera. Bought after a lot of procrastinating (even I’m not sure why) I put some of the money from the sponsored posts lately straight back into my favourite hobby.

It’s not a DSLR as I can’t face lugging one around, but a wee compact that slips easily into a small bag and takes pretty stonking pictures in lowlight (perfect for moodily lit restaurant interiors). The only trouble is that I’m in that awful middle ground with it – I know what I want, just not how to do it

And then I slip guiltily back onto the old habit of using my phone. It can just be SO handy (especially when at exhibitions historical cookbooks over the ages – eat your heart out Blumental, you’re such a medieval copycat! Hey, it says in my blog bio I’m a dork – don’t say you weren’t warned ;-))

It has opened my eyes again to the wonder of London cityscapes though…
