graffiti off the beaten path of brick lane. this eclectic area was by far my favorite experience of the trip. basement antique/thrift stores, vintage clothing, craft vendor stalls. a little bit of my home abroad.
lovely house in notting hill. within the city limits, there is very little personal green space. the small garden vignettes you pass by are so amazingly beautiful, and make you realize that you don't need a lot to have beauty. as americans, we are constantly being drilled with the notion that bigger is better. when you travel abroad, you realize how completely misled this thinking is.
glass goblets that i fell in love with.
a bit strange taking photos of someones knickers, i know, but this was such a completely european moment, we couldn't pass it by.
gorgeous chandeliers at portobello market. and yes, it was very difficult for me not to pack every one of these up and buy a return flight home for them!
british royal academy.
macaroons at a fancy corner bakery by the royal academy.
pocket watches in notting hill.
installation artwork outside the waterloo station (i think). made of paper shipping cartons.
jessica and i on the millenium bridge on our last day.
(thanks to the nice guy taking our photo, much appreciated!)
