A Morning in Brixton…

I’ve been hearing a lot about Brixton recently. It’s not somewhere I’d have gone out of my way to visit in the past so yesterday I spent the morning there to see what it’s all about. First up Coffee! Another snoop on Google maps threw up a really cute place I’d never been to. Kent House Coffee and Flowers. Officially in Beckenham it actually looked … Continue reading A Morning in Brixton…

In Hanoi and Happy

It’s been 10 years since I was in Vietnam; I thought it would have changed & that all I loved before would have been replaced by banana pancakes and caramel lattes, but I’ve been really pleasantly surprised. Don’t get me wrong there’s always time for a caramel latte but thankfully there’s also plenty more to be had. The people are wonderful and this country which … Continue reading In Hanoi and Happy

Home should be where the heart is.

Surely poverty doesn’t exist in Ibiza? Can there be that many homeless people? This is the standard reaction when there is any mention of this subject. But the reality is very different and made all the more harder to do anything about because there is so little awareness of the fact that yes there is plenty of poverty and plenty of homeless people too. With this … Continue reading Home should be where the heart is.

What’s in a Library?

Libraries will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no libraries. –Anne Herbert I hear it’s World Book Day today so this is my nod to all things literary…. It’s easy to forget them isn’t it – libraries could easily be forgiven for holding their hands up and going home without a backwards glance such is … Continue reading What’s in a Library?

Meet the Market (before it closes)

The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old but on building the new. Nice words, but do they always apply?  I’ve been in the Elephant and Castle, an area of London which is a mere 15 minutes away from such lovely things as the London Eye and the Houses of Parliament. Lovely however probably isn’t a word … Continue reading Meet the Market (before it closes)

Sorry About Your Wall

Whatever your opinions about graffiti there’s no doubting that there’s some really good work going on. Personally I like it, the drabbest of spaces are transformed by these often amazing pieces. Galleries can be so boring and stuffy, this keeps great art free and outdoors for all to enjoy.  I’ll be updating this page as much as I can over on my galleries – take a look  https://annewalkerphotography.wordpress.com/portfolio/sorry-about-your-wall/Continue reading Sorry About Your Wall

Where there’s a Will there’s a way

It’s nice to just wander sometimes and yesterday those random wanderings took me so far as a rather nice piece of art work in Shoreditch. Turns out the man doing all the work here is Will Barras http://willbarras.tumblr.com/  He kindly took a few moments to speak to me and of course have a little pose. I really liked his work, there’s a lot of movement in … Continue reading Where there’s a Will there’s a way

Motivate me please!

I’d love to jump out of bed feeling ready to battle the day but that’s not always the case… This is probably something everyone suffers with from time to time. There are days which seem so easy to glide through, ideas are coming from every direction and I’m feeling good. Then there’s days like today… I haven’t achieved anything of note, I can’t think of … Continue reading Motivate me please!

Walking Amongst The Dead

“To the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure.” Divided into two parts, named the East and West cemetery there are approximately 170,000 people buried in around 53,000 graves at Highgate Cemetery; that’s a lot of dead people and you might wonder why anyone would want to spend their time mooching around with a camera amidst such surroundings. Quite the opposite of being morbid … Continue reading Walking Amongst The Dead
