Interrupting the heavy work load today to insist on the beauty of the world. I never expected it, and I came to London really late, but it has become one of my favourite places on Earth. I was in my late twenties when I visited it the first time; and it really didn’t hit me until I realised that the best thing out of Dublin were the cheap and fast flights to London. After I organised a study trip to London for myself and a group of fellow students from my photography class in 2011, I resolved to visit London every year. Two Hobbit premieres and the Crucible run were much appreciated reasons for short breaks, and with a new job which requires regular work trips to London, frequent visits started in the summer of 2015. Over time, I became familiar with the city, yet I never stop taking photographs of it. It is beautiful, exciting and exhilarating. It never bores me, and I love the multicultural atmosphere of this nonetheless quintessentially English metropolis. It is a true “world city”.
Yesterday’s London attack may leave me speechless, but I will say it with pictures: I love London and #IRefuseToBeAfraid.
I can’t wait to schedule my next trip for late April. #IRefuseToBeAfraid.
