Just before Christmas, me and Jordan took a trip to Portobello Road to try and find some festive clothes and records. I was after a navy Barbour jacket (Jordan inherited my last one - which I found in a charity shop for a mere 30 pounds) but unfortunately I couldn't justify spending £70+ on one when I know they can be found in charity shops relatively easily!
It was still lovely to go up to Notting Hill, I've only been once and not had a proper look, and it was really lovely! Annoyingly, we went a bit late in the day and a lot of my photos didn't come out, so a lot of the stalls I saw and markets we found didn't get snapped. I didn't realise that if you just walk a bit further up Portobello Road, it gets very posh and very pretty. I felt a bit silly for never having been before, considering I've lived in London for 19 years (and my love of the film Notting Hill).
I don't really do New Year's resolutions, I always forget about them and feel terrible when I remember about 3 months later, but I definitely want to take more photos this year. I've got three cameras which I'm absolutely in love with, and can't wait for the weather to perk up a bit so I can use them again! I write for a fab zine called PebbleZine, and the photography is so lovely, I'm hoping to contribute to that at some point or another as well.
