.: Around London and Natas :.

I love walking around London and taking some photos, each corner is so different from each other and then there’s always those amazing food spots!

I also wanted to see the balloons in Convent Garden. Should have stayed for nightfall to see them with all the light around, but oh well

And then all the street food, so colourful!

But what I really wanted was my chance to try I Love Nata, and my oh my, I wasn’t prepared for all that awesomeness! It’s certainly the best Natas in London and quite better than many places in Portugal itself. The place itself is quite small and simple, but it’s for the Natas that really counts. To my surprise they also had Delta machines in there, so the coffee was really good. I left with a big smile on my face, so good! Hard to resist to have only 1

On our way back to the train, we were presented with an amazing music around us and we found this gentlemen playing in the street. There’s not many cities in the world with so many amazing street musicians as London

And here’s another lovely lady, you can find more about her on facebook

What’s your favourite place to walk around in London? Have you found any amazing street artists?

Enjoy your sunny weekend 🙂

.: Exploring Osterley Park :.

As we were feeling quite lazy after our journey to Birmingham yesterday, we’ve decided to stay local. So just before lunch we went to Osterley Park which is just 10m away from home (yes, we’re trying to make the most of our National Trust membership). It was also a good occasion to practice landscape photos with my new A6000.

This place is really beautiful and really easy to forget you are still in London! Perfect for families, a picnic or just a walk like we did

The house looks really nice as well, maybe next time we’ll go in

This is one of my favourite, love the light

So overall quite please with the photos. Still trying to get used to the camera and to the fact that any little adjustment in the settings is a lot more noticed in the Sony sensor. Also, because I’m used to my canon and image stabilization need to stop and focus and can’t simply stop quickly, press the shutter and off I go. But quite adapted already to the portability 😀

It’s Sunday afternoon, you fancy a walk in a Park, where would you go? What do you recommend?

Cheers 🙂

.: A6000 experiments :.

Yap, I surrender to technology. I surrender to lighter cameras that can fit into my small bag and being carried everywhere I go. So I’ve just bought myself the A6000 as well (which is the camera he has). I thought about possibly going to a full frame like the sony’s A7 series, but then again for the type of photography that I do it’s not really worth it and that would be a bit bulkier anyway, so decided for portability instead. It’s so light on my hands! When I was carrying my Canon 60D with the lens it was more than 1.5kg around my neck. That’s not very handy in London, so here’s why I felt that I needed a lighter one.

So after the meat feast @ Pitt Cue Co, we went for a walk and I’ve managed to take some photos. Still trying to get used to the camera

Next morning we went for a walk in Chiswick

And being in Chiswick couldn’t really resist a stop at Franco Manca! (My favourite pizzas in town)
