Portobello Road

Earlier this month, I had a few hours to spare between Monday morning meetings in Shoreditch and class at LSE. I was in London and with my camera, and it was an unseasonably warm day - naturally, I wanted to be out and about and not simply reading in a cafe somewhere. Not today. I [...]
