Chiltern Street

london

Today I went for a walk around Chiltern Street in Marylebone. I think it’s quite a famous spot with it’s beautiful red brick town houses.

I also spotted a couple of nice cars.

I normally take candid street photos, but I’ve been wanting to work on my confidence to ask people if I can take their photo. I saw some friendly looking people outside of ‘Trunk’ store, it was a lovely scene, so I asked if I could photograph them. They kindly agreed.













autumn is here

Poetry

Autumn is one of my favourite seasons of the year. After the (sometimes) hot summer days I enjoy a return to crisp fresh air.

The parks can be particularly beautiful. Many of the trees turn from green to yellow and brown; and countless other shades.

It’s a beautiful time to go for a walk with a friend.

If you visit the park at the right time when the sun is lower in the sky, not only will you see all the shades of colour, but also the beautiful contrast created from the shadows created by the shapes of the leaves.

Unfortunately londons regularly gloomy sky can make things look a little flat. And poor deck chairs are at their loneliest, not yet inside for the winter, but no one wants to be with them.

Even the smallish squares around the city can be spectacularly beautiful.

Might be getting chilly, but nothing will stop londoners trying to be romantic.

Make sure to get some autumn walks in before going into winter hibernation!
