Ah, holidays. I’ve been on a fairly long break and finally understand those previously-thought-of-as-weird people who say they’re glad to be home. I used to wonder why they bothered going away. But now I live in paradise and - whilst there’s still fun to be had exploring the world - I really do feel happy to be back. Hearing about other people’s holidays can be a bore; looking at pictures is usually the least distressing way to survive the ordeal.

I’ve been trying to learn how to use a DSLR camera without touching the automatic settings and have ended up with some shots that I love. As usual with this stuff, I haven't cropped, filtered or done anything shady with them.

Here’s London, part 1, by me.

The next installment will be Hong Kong or Whitby. Maybe even London, part 2 (so good I went there twice).
