    southbank as inspiration

    May 29, 2012

    This post was inspired by 2 charming male bloggers. James balston, interior photographer extraordinaire, who shot my flat for heart home magazine and the lovely gerard mcguickin (affectionately named mr. grey) of walnut grey design, a design writer and interior stylists who i’m scheduled to meet, for the first time, later on next month. Both champion the aesthetics and have rather stylish blogs.

    I was at the southbank centre last week and forgot what mish mash of concrete buildings, restaurants and public spaces all fight for attention. It’s a visual mayem. On closer inspection, i was amazed at all the changes that had taken place and it really looked very colourful, vibrant and rather funky. Visual mayem can be good, right?

    The sun was slowly setting as i walked around, camera in hand. My first thought was to capture some of the buildings but sure enough i went for colour, patterns and interesting temporary objects and pop-up huts instead. No surprise there!

    If you’re after beautifully shot buildings and interiors i urge you to take a look at both james and gerard’s blogs. You won’t be disappointed. These guys do it with style and panache.

    If you’re after tina style photography, stay right here. I hope you find something of interest and i can inspire you in my own little way. How’s your week going?

    I see you back here on friday, just before the long bank holiday where i’ll hopefully get a chance to go to some of the diamond jubilee festivities in order to share it with you here on my blog. Have a good rest of the week people.
