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 had seen beautiful pictures of the Notting Hill area of London and heard equally beautiful things, but had never been myself. Twenty minutes on the tube later, that changed. Though I am admittedly still learning to use my camera (ie not yet very good, especially in challenging lighting situations like cloudy London), I had fun wandering aimlessly, no destination. This street was the perfect place to do exactly that. This is definitely my new favorite part of the city.
