Bond in Motion

The London Film Museum is currently hosting an exhibition called Bond in Motion, which is apparently the largest collection of original James Bond vehicles. Obviously, I had to go and see this. I'm a huge James Bond fan and have always been a bit nerdy about cars. This exhibition will be running until March 2015, so those of you in or near London still have some time to check it out.

I was quite impressed with this display of vehicles. To see the actual size of some of them was surprising, some a lot smaller than you think (namely the little airplane) and some a lot larger.  There were also display screens above each car showing clips of the movie where the car was used, in case you've forgotten.

The highlight for me was seeing the submarine car, and the damaged Aston Martins.

The Antishop

What's there to say about The Antishop, except that they're just really cool. They're a small coffee shop and deli in Brick Lane that do amazing things and you as the customer can be a part of it.

They promote young design by decorating the coffee shop with student design pieces and change it up regularly, hence the coffee shop decor changes regularly. Everything is handmade, from the sandwiches to the chairs you sit on.

They're also all about charity. Everyday they have a different charity special which you can buy, whereby the profits go to Action Against Hunger. What's even better you can go in-store or online and also give whatever you'd like to a homeless person, whether that's a coffee or a piece of furniture.

It's all very wholesome over there and they do make a decent cappuccino.

Pieces of a lovely apartment

I've been neglecting this space. Quite unlike me, but I'm changing that, starting with a few shots that I took of a lovely apartment here in London while on a job with Emma. It actually has 5 floors and a basement and as you can probably tell, it's a rather ideal living space for London. The lady who lives there was kind enough to allow me to roam around and shoot in the short time that I had.

All I could think of was how much I would love to have a good lens for interiors. Maybe some day.
