On Being Boring

I moved from London to Brussels with my husband nearly 10 years ago. When I told people we were moving, the news was greeted with bemusement: why did we want to move to a city that was possibly the most boring place on earth? Ten years later and I can honestly say that I've had more fun here than I ever did living in London. It might not be the most exciting city in the world but it is a fantastic place to live. It is full of hidden treasures that you probably never get to see as a tourist: wonderful shops, amazing food, great museums and galleries, beautiful architecture, a forest (yes, a whole forest), and so much more... And if that doesn't convince you, well, get on a train and you could be in Paris, Amsterdam, Cologne or, yes, London in no more than a couple of hours... Which other city can you say that about?

This is why I love photography

I know I’m boring everyone to death with my incessant posting right now, but I just have to post one more thing. This:

This is why I love my camera. Why I love photography. These aren’t technically or artistically “good” pictures but they are two of my favorite pictures ever. My pops reading a story my grandma wrote to my little girl (and Amélie climbing on the arm of the armchair without being told off. Now that’s real love for you! I wouldn’t have been allowed to do that!).
