Mon: A place for photography.

That books chair.

Camden Market

This is what my room looks like most of the time. Books, papers and chairs everywhere. My to-read list is quite overwhelming and I always end up reading whatever my mood dictates anyway.

London Bricks.

0109 0151 0165 0498 0500 0504 0506 0577

Something I noticed almost as soon as I landed in London was the bricks. What a weird thing to notice! But I really think they are worth mentioning. From my memory there were red, white-ish, yellow and brown bricks. The red ones, I concluded, are used in elegant buildings and are carved. I’d never seen carved red bricks to create and ornate front. The brown and yellow bricks, I saw, were used in big buildings and in some cases the entrances contrasted by being made of limestone or white plaster to create a classical entrance. I really wish I could study the composition of these types of bricks. Here in Mexico we have red bricks, but their pores are wide and I don’t think they could be carved without breaking. I imagine it’s got to do with the soil.

Graffiti.

0101 0102

The world of graffiti is one that fascinates me. Banksy is my idol. But also, there are just the regular graffitis that in the right context (like the picture above) create an urban world of their own. Like an utopia of just being. I read an article that this place was going to be torn down and then these guys that skate and graffiti there got together and got to keep it as is. I thought it was such a great achievement. An example of urban freedom. I hope it really does stay like this.

My favorite thing about London…

Big Ben

Millenium Bridge

When I got back from my trip to London everyone kept asking me what my favorite thing had been. And I would just stare blankly back and lamely say “everything”. I got some pretty meaningful “what is wrong with you” stares back.

But the thing is, my favorite thing about London was all of it. From the big museum and must-visits, to the coffee and people. I tried to see and experience as much as I could and ended up with around 2,000 pictures. How could I chose just one thing?

Reading in a Park (London edition)

London

I took this picture on September 9th at the top of Hamsptead Park, and I cannot believe that was 3 months ago!! Anyway, it was a beautiful day and I really wanted to capture the colors in the clouds. I only realized a few moments later that there was a woman reading. So basically, this picture is a mistake that I like very much.

In other news, I am terrible at blogging. I had too many things to do all the time this year and I honestly forgot to keep posting. And it just sounds awful now that I’m admitting it. But everything else turned out fine and now that I’m taking a bit of a break I will finally share some of the pictures I’ve taken in the las few months.
