It was a sunny enough weekend (at least the rain only came in spurts), so we managed a little stroll over to Borough Market on Saturday.

I never tire of the hustle and bustle of London’s many markets, the shout of vendors, the smell of fresh tomatoes, then a sharp hint of cheese followed by the slow roasted flavours of duck released under the canopies.
We picked up two cartons of fresh strawberries for a pound, ate some later on with vanilla custard poured on top.

Fresh food. An atmosphere that is heavy with life just happening all around you.

Gibbon’s Rent was a bit of a derelict place judging by the before and after photos. Before, strewn with empty beer cans and the remains of discarded cigarettes. After, a neat and organised pathway with lined with potted shrubs and plants. Amazing what a bit of nature can do to a neglected area. Stop by and have a look if you’re in the area (especially if you’ve seen it before). It’s a shortcut from Magdalen Street to Bermondsey.
I’ll show you some photos of our wander around Tower Bridge soon!
What are you up to this week? Anything exciting happening I should know about?
By the way, only 2 more likes on Facebook until 600, which means another photography print launch soon! Pass it on 🙂
