Borough Market

Yesterday we had to go to London and pick up the wedding rings we have had made and it's fair to say we've enjoyed our "excuses" for London recently.  After doing some other wedding errands we headed quite late in the day to Borough Market.

I love food markets, back home we visit farm shops and farmers markets quite a lot wishing we had the cash to do our "weekly shop" but just walking around them and looking at what all the passionate people have to offer is exciting enough for me.

This fish counter was great and this chap was practically giving the fish away.  The advice is to go to the market very early in the day to avoid crowds and get the food at its freshest but at 4pm you can get some great deals!

Oh to be a florist!

I got our Diana Mini film developed today which was packed full of our recent camping trip but yesterday had one more picture left and thought we would capture our mugs.  I love film photography as often in my case I forget what was taken at the beginning of the film so it's always an exciting surprise. Our SLR had a black and white film of our camping trip which will get developed soon so looking forward to blogging that!

Today I miss the Scottish Highlands.

This time last year we took a family holiday to bonny Scotland for some walking and relaxation in the great outdoors.

Glen Coe, "dark and foreboding" according to the guides and yes it was, very Lord of the Rings.  These two pictures were taken at a pit stop on the way up to Fort William.

We triumphed Ben Nevis!

Scotland was definitely on our wish list for wedding and honeymoon but we focused on Autumn time for the festivities which probably would have been a wash out...we will be back though!

South Bank festival

South Bank was buzzing at the weekend! There is a festival going on most weekends until the beginning of September and we managed to bump into the action surrounding a vintage festival fair.  Behind the Royal Festival Hall was a great food festival.  We walked around and enjoyed the smells and sat with a drink - the Mr had a large Polish beer and I had a really rather strong cider.  

London really is very nice when the sun shines.

London lunch

Mmm yummy lunch at Las Iguanas

First post

Here I am internet, Caroline Starrs.  I love taking photos, eating, gardening (though I'm not very good at it), going to the pub, going for walks, I would say I love the gym but I think its the feeling I've worked out and I've done my bit for my body that I love not the actual exercise, making things which has been honed out of crafting for our wedding in October, seeing new places, Spain, camping, shabby chic furniture, my family, my friends and last but not least my man.

I love chatting but I'm rubbish at writing so this space will mostly be filled as a photo diary rather than a place to air my thoughts.  You never know though I may grow some confidence!

(Me and my ebay SLR that I'm still figuring out)
