I cannot believe that it is finally happening! All of my friends have either started school or their own study abroad travels, except me. I've been patiently waiting all summer for the one day I have memorized, September 20th, to what will be the start of an amazing Senior Fall term.
I was trying to figure out how to form this post, because I'm a photo and creative blog correspondent but I'm not yet in London to take photos or draw! So instead, this is a post that sort of explains my background, from photo classes to where I've been this summer to small doodles.
I'm very interested in architectural photos, along with portrait photography. Below are some of my favorite photos I've taken in my film photography classes.
I'm excited to explore the streets of London and its architectural designs! There are definitly some unique buildings and spaces to discover.
This is not my first Fall abroad. Last year I travelled to Morocco! It was an amazing experience, and hard to sum up, but two pictures really stood out to me that I feel inspire my future travels and photos.
I went on a trip to the Sahara and captured two really cool moments with the camels, dunes, and sky. I'm looking forward to my weekend trips around the U.K. and Europe! While I bet they will be less sandy, the trips should be exqually as fun.
This summer I was working in D.C. The District of Columbia is a fascinating city, and also a metropolitan hub like London. While they are both capitals and share similarities because of it, they both have their own spirit. I attempted to capture the feel of D.C. and compared to what I expect to see in London or what questions I had about the British city.
Living around D.C. means I get to see these famous and historical monuments everyday. I absolutely love it. I'm very excited to see London's famous buildings like the Shard, Big Ben, and Buckingham Palace. It'll be fun to compare the White House to 10 Downing St.
I also doodled a bit of two famous icons of the U.K. I'm really excited to actually doodle the city while in the city, but in the mean time I thought these two would be appropriate.
I hope I can see the Queen's corgis!! One can dream...
I'm excited to continue documenting my journey in London and to share with you all. Thanks for reading and get ready for actual London photos!
