Get Away from the City and Discover Southampton

1

I love this park and fell in love here too. It has everything I want from a park, and its right at my doorstep. It seems a million miles away from the city.

If you are ever in Southampton, take an hour out with your camera bag and go for a walk around the common.

There is a really old and spooky graveyard, full of history

It’s beautiful and full of wildlife, I must have a dozen rolls from here waiting to be sent to the lab.

A great play park (in the summer) and loads of fun in the rain.

There is also a lovely pub if you need to get your energy back

Oh and did I mention the lake? with beautiful swans.

If it gets too much for you, just relax under the sun.

    How (Not) to Make It in New York

    Everything I had fit into eight boxes and two suitcases. That’s all I had collected in my 22 years on earth, eight boxes and two suitcases. My friends and I moved to Brooklyn in the dead of winter, just after a huge snowstorm. I came from California and had no real experience living in snow. All of it was magical to me.

    LomoLocations: Beijing, China

    Beijing is a ready-made template for panoramic shots. Tourist baits like The Great Wall, Forbidden City and Summer Palace stretch for miles. Those who walk from end to end will have more to say. For instance, that the ground goes on to infinity. Or that they have never been so tired and amazed all at once.
