AND SHE SLIPS INTO SOMETHING ELEGANT























































Finally, London in those elegant monochromes

against grey skies.

The quiet back streets of white and cream buildings

with their black iron railings

that cause a few extra sighs when walking past. 


Thank you for patiently walking the streets with me!

    1. Voi, toivottavasti näet Nalle!
      On kyllä niin valtava kaupunki,
      että kokemus voi olla ihan toisenlainen
      riippuen missä päin liikkuu.

  3. I adore your photos. I am just learning. How do you process your photos to get that white dreamy look. Is it a filter? Would you kindly explain to me.
    I'm 66 years old and need to learn the newer stuff. Please and thank you.

    1. Thanks so much dear Love and xxxx!
      Well, I have a basic DSLR + all these were taken with my favourite,
      very cost-efficient 50 mm lens.
      For detail, I usually go for a large aperture,
      which leaves the background blurred and soft.
      I shoot everything in RAW format,
      which requires basic editing afterwards,
      so I usually adjust basic things,
      such as saturation, exposure, brightness and contrast afterwards.
      Sometimes I add a little gaussian blur to create some extra blurriness
      and softness.
      I hope you find this helpful and so exciting that you're learning new stuff!
      It's incredible how much one can learn and how quickly,
      when there's motivation there and there's been the opportunity
      to get to know what one likes and tweak one's style over the years.
      Wishing you loads of fun and love as you carry on with your journey, x

    1. Ahh, yes, quite a stash there!
      The photo was of a window of a little antiques shop
      along Westbourne Grove,
      I'm sure some of it will still be around
      for the next time you're in town :)

  6. Aivan mielettömän kauniita kuvia! Tällaisen Lontoon minäkin haluaisin joskus nähdä... aivan ihania nuo valkoiset rakennukset ja kujan päälle kaartuvat puut...

    1. Kiitos Marja!
      Onneksi Lontoo on niin paljon muutakin kuin niitä vilkkaimpia katuja,
      turistirysiä ja väenpaljoutta.
      Nuo valkoiset lontoolaiskodit on kyllä unelmia...
      masennus vaan iskee, jos sattuu kurkkaamaan välitystoimiston ikkunasta hintoja.
      Mutta onneksi sinne pääsee aina käymään!

It makes me happy
when you leave a trace

- whether it's a single word
or you scribble all over.
