After my recent interview with Dan Howden, seeing all his travel inspired prints and hearing of his solo adventures I decided it was time to fall well and truly back in love with my own city and spend the whole weekend exploring. As well as making it to some of the exhibitions I'd had my eye on, I also took the time to visit some spots in my local areas of Leyton and Walthamstow. To top the week off, I had the absolute pleasure of working from The Shard on Friday - what a view of London, be still my beating heart. Here's a few of the snaps I took along the way including getting lost in Ann Veronica Janssens, the best hot chocolate from Deeney's, ribbons at VV Rouleaux and a neon lover's paradise at Gods Own Junkyard. Now get out there and see your city / town / village and appreciate every little bit of it. I'm off on more adventures tomorrow!
