When I started to sort out a few photos for one 'London' post from my recent travels, there were just too many. I love London. It's one of those things I had never expected to happen, as love sometimes is..but I loved London when I first heard a bunch of punks whining about their boyfriends on the train from Heathrow..this is ten years ago..and I loved their get ups from the doc martens to the green bottle brush hair. In all my trips (many in 2011 when I was living in Oxford) London has evolved and remains a city I love to explore.
This time, playing tourist in high summer with all the crowds was an eye opener and even though I loved the energy and the holiday atmosphere I prefer the grey drizzly London I was used to that isn't quite so frantic. I'll show you crowds in my next post but I wan't to start off with the Maltby markets. They are not far from the better known and bigger Borough Market which goes the week through. Malty Market is a Saturday morning neighbourhood market to grab some gourmet food, some bric a brac for the home or just eat something exotic.
Or in my case, snap some photos..
Hipsters love these markets, just like they do in Sydney..
I'll be linking to Weekend Reflections. In the meantime have a good week,
