Looking up – part 1

After two years of working in a London art gallery, I moved to a regional one, which has drastically reduced my commute. There is only one downside, and that is missing the beautiful architecture of the city. It sounds cheesy to say, but I never tired of walking around aimlessly, admiring the mish-mashed history of the capital’s architecture. I started collecting photos of my wanderings some time ago, meaning to post this as a reminder not to walk like a commuter – head down, full speed, zero awareness of others or surroundings. Whether admiring the same skyline everyday or discovering hidden treasures, there are many perks to looking up.
