update: London holiday

I suppose it's time for a little update since it's almost a month since I blogged here at VOX! Time flies and all that jazz my dears. ;) The past month has been quite an evenful one; this far I have managed to celebrate my birthday in a prison cell (converted into a bar!), catch and recover from the mother of all flu viruses, have a week off work for the first part of my summer holidays and shoot another wedding. Busy times my friends, busy times. This past week I had, like I said, a lovely week off from work. And sometimes it is just lovely to be a tourist in your own town. Let alone when your home town is London. Here is my past week in photos:

I managed to spend a lot of time in various cafes. Birds were optional.

I've had some superbly naughty treats like this cupcake at one of London's best bakeries.

And I've managed to convert more people to the spell (and fabulous Japanese food) of Wagamama's.

There's been some shopping involved and a lot of London's second hand shops visited…

… including some gorgeous finds with brilliant prices!

I've also gone around the London Eye for the fourth time (I think, or the fifth. I'm starting to lose count!) – it never fails to impress me. London is so beautiful from high above as it is at street level.

I love London so much. The best view really is from this amazing contraption by the Thames. Trust me!

Really. Wouldn't you agree? :)

But now it's back to work, and back to normality, at least for a while. I've learned that professional wedding photographers call this time of the year the "silly season" and I am quickly starting to understand why! I am really enjoying it though as it's such an amazing thing for a silly romantic like me to be able to go to a wedding so often at the moment – let alone take photos of people! With a permission! It's all win-win-win situation for me! :D Although as a result of such a silly season I can give no guarantees of any regularity on updates for now, but trust me, when I can I will! At least in another month's time I have couple weeks off for the second part of this year's summer holidays. I'm heading Finland-Estonia way again this year and most certainly will have my camera(s) with me. :)

    Thanks! :) I eat at Wagamama's far too often, and have a tendency of taking anyone who is in London for the first time there immediately. Although it is the best quality/value/service/location placed chain in London. ;)
