At first I was hesitating to go up on the roof to get the laundry down (yes in the Mediterranean we hang our clothes up on the roof :) ) but boy am I glad I did? It was a perfect winter sunset and I was lucky to have my iPhone on me.

It feels so good to be able to post on this blog again and continue where I had left off! My life had taken such a weird turn that I simply had to put aside all the things I love doing to be able to be with the person I love the most. He has been diagnosed with cancer and his health deteriorated fast. Juggling between taking care of him and still having my full time day job it was difficult at the end of the day to do all the extra things.
Now it seems that life is looking a big better. He is doing better, therefore I can once again focus on the things I love.
This photo was taken on our first drive together after almost 15 months of being stuck at home as he was not able to move. It was good, it was fantastic and it was even better that I could get my Hipstamatic back out again!
Happy New Year Everyone!!

I finally got around to sorting and editing my London photos that were taken in my latest trip. This photo was one of those photos that you just take while you are walking. No thoughts, just point and snap and then you realize it actually looks good and has potential. Sometimes unplanned photos turn out to be better than the ones you spend hours upon hours thinking about!
This photo was taken from the Millennium Bridge while we were on our way to the Tate Modern. While it was freezing, the day was beautiful! Very blue skies and not a single cloud in sight. Very rare for London but we got lucky.
I am a person that simply love skylines (still believe no skyline can beat the NYC skyline) but when you are in a city like London (or Paris) it's actually good that they prohibit such tall buildings. I think if London had a skyline similar to NYC it would kill it's authenticity.
This photo was taken using a Canon 40D with my usual 60mm macro lens. It was edited and converted to black and white using Photoshop CS4.

First of all I would like apologize for the delay in posting something new. I am afraid I don't have any particular excuse this time except that I was away for a few days. London was the destination.
I remember the first time I set foot in the city of London, I didn't quite like it and I could not see why people go crazy about it. Five visits later and I can't get enough of it. The same thing happened with New York City. The first visit I just wanted to get on a plane and come back to Malta. Now I can't get enough of both.
I honestly believe that this last visit was the best London visit so far. We stayed in the heart of Mayfair and while I did enjoy shopping, the best thing was roaming and discovering new streets by walk. We saw things that were off the beaten path and ate at restaurants that I am sure we wouldn't have found if we stayed at our usual touristic area.
Anyway enough praising (even though it's not even close to enough for me). This grand glass chandelier, which I have seen for the very first time in my life (thanks to my special partner) can be found at the entrance of the Victoria and Albert museum. I was so shocked (in a good way) when I saw it that I almost cried and I couldn't move. I have never seen anything like it in my whole life and it will stay imprinted in my mind for a very long time, if not forever.
There is something that makes color seem special in London. Maybe because of the weather? Maybe because it's dark almost all the time. So as soon as you see something as magnificent as this chandelier, your brain will instantly take a mental picture and will store it forever.
