A weekend away

So yesterday I just got back from a long weekend in London, which was super relaxing and we had a lovely time, and caught up with lots of friends. The main reason for us going down was that lomography were doing a daytrip to Brighton on Saturday and we have always talked about going there. I will write about that in a separate entry. We went down on Friday night and stayed with Helen in South London, just past Croydon. When we arrived, she had already got us each a William and Cate commemorative Oyster Card, lol. All in all we had a lovely time and I think I shot about 5 rolls of film in the end. More importantly, I was very very strict with myself and did not use my digital camera at all while we were there. I am off to Asda to get my analogue pictures developed this evening so I can't wait to see how they will come out - fingers crossed. Below are a few pictures from my Twitter while I was away, all of which I did using Instagram. Apart from Brighton we went shopping, had dinner out (numerous times), drank in Camden Lock, saw some sights (Buckingham Palace), saw Cate Middleton in a car, hired Barclays bikes and rode around Soho and Trafalger. And on Tuesday before we left we had a very posh breakfast in a Michelin starred restaurant inside HMP High Down. I had seen The Clink on a TV show not so long ago and just thought it was such a great idea, I had to visit. I am dying to go back and sample their lunch menu now! Info about the Clink prison restaurant can be seen here. I highly recommend a visit if you happen to be in the area! The food was super, very cheap and the decor/service/experience were brilliant.

    I'm so jealous you took photos in London :) I lived there before I got any of my cameras and my heart breaks everytime I think of the missed opportunities! looking forward to seeing your photos!

  2. Don't get too excited!!! You'd best read my blog over on lomography - there was a development disaster!!!!
