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…
A recent weekend to Palma Mallorca. The 7 things I loved most. Continue reading 7 great things about… Palma Mallorca
It’s been 10 years since I was in Vietnam; I thought it would have changed & that all I loved before would have been replaced by banana pancakes and caramel lattes, but I’ve been really pleasantly surprised.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
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.
Not tonight it would seem which is fine by me 🙂 This platform seemed very content in its abandoned solitude whilst the last train hurrying through paid it no attention whatsoever. Continue reading They say London’s busy…
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?
I live in Ibiza, Spain and sometimes in winter it can be, well shall we say a little quiet. This weekend however wasn’t one of those times. The cause of all this… A small uninhabited island called Es Vedra which can be found off of the south coast. This is on any other day nothing more than a photogenic landmark, it also had due to … Continue reading It’s no Goat
Cuenca, Spain It can also be found just around the corner which is always a bonus 🙂 Continue reading The Earth Has Music For Those That Listen

A year from now you may wish you had started today I’m intrigued by where things can take a person, a person who just allows things to happen and goes with it. Not always easy when we’ve all got agendas and lots to do, but that’s the beauty of stepping off the trail for a moment. In this case I’ve been considering the concept of … Continue reading Something Now
I’m a bit late with this thing but I’m still going to give a go… Blogging 101, a masterclass in this world and a way of improving my writing and site. So this is day 1 for me and today is officially saying hi to you all and welcome to this blog. Introductions are as follows, I’m Anne, I used to be from London, well … Continue reading Hello World…
Well it is where I am! But I wouldn’t have it any other way, London may be grey today but for me it’s the best place in the world to be at Xmas time. The last few days have been a commercial whirlwind with shops bursting at the seams and people trying to squeeze into the tiniest of spaces on creaking trains but today is … Continue reading Oh the weather outside is frightful…
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)
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
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
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!
“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
After a long long summer season in Ibiza I’m really happy to be in London for the next 2 weeks. The idea is to recharge and enjoy the change of scenery but the camera is never far from my fingertips… I know I’ll be off out in the next couple of days to document some of my random wanderings. In my other life I am … Continue reading My photography and time for me
