How to make new friends via Meetup

I just had a terrific photography experience at the weekend. After my friend Ruth said to me last year she went to a ‘Meetup’ photo gathering I thought I ought to look into it. Meetup in this cool platform that gathers all sorts of events (some free, some with a contribution) where you can choose to meet people who share a hobby similar to yours. I looked again into it in order to give you more details about MeetUp and I realised that MeetUp operates in 180 countries which really amazed me – read more about it onWikipedia here.

One of the things I have found when you live in a big cities such as London, Paris…is that life can become quite impersonal. Continue reading

Diwali, festival of lights/Diwali, le festival indien des lumières

🇬🇧 Being a photography student, I’m always on the look out for fun, unique, colourful events in London to visit.

🇫🇷 Depuis que je suis devenue une étudiante en photographie je suis, peut être encore plus qu’avant, à la recherche d’événements colorés, sympas ou uniques qui feraient de bons sujets pour ma pratique de la photo sur Londres.

A glorious late summer day at Hughenden Manor/Une superbe journée de fin d’été au Manoir de Hughenden

🇬🇧 We were in the UK for the last bank holiday of the summer and just decided to really make the most of it. Living in a 2 bedroom flat as a family of 5 has got at least one good thing: it encourages us to be out and explore as often as we can. We decided to head out for the day and have a pic-nic at the beautiful Hughenden Manor.

🇫🇷 Nous étions en Angleterre pour le dernier weekend de 3 jours du mois d’Aout et avec la météo qui nous était annoncé il nous fallait en profiter. Bien évidemment habiter a 5 dans un appartement est un élément supplémentaire  qui nous motive pour bouger et partir faire des petites excursions en famille!

A fantastic day enjoying London Open House

Last weekend was the London Open House 2016 edition. This is a super exciting event in the capital where you get a chance to access buildings that are not generally opened to the public. The list of venues is incredible and somehow sometimes a bit overwhelming but worth spending a bit of time reviewing it.

Beautiful Brittany weather and that thirst/Un temps breton canon et cette soif!

🇬🇧 We have been so spoilt in Brittany over the last few weeks, the weather has been amazing. Those of you who know this part of the world know that even in summer sunshine is not always guaranteed several weeks in a row (and not even several days in a row;) but we have loved every minute of it.

🇫🇷 Nous avons été vraiment gâté ces dernières semaines en Bretagne avec une météo vraiment canon. Pour ceux qui connaissent bien la Bretagne, vous saurez que même en plein été la Bretagne est une région pleine de surprises et il n’est pas toujours facile de garantir plusieurs jours d’affilés de soleil éclatant encore moins sur plusieurs semaines. Toujours est-il que nous avons pleinement profité!

50 shades of pink/Variations en rose

🇬🇧 It’s that time of the year when this little pocket in the heart of Richmond Park in London – the Isabella Plantation – becomes a very very special place. A sight that I have seen nowhere else. Basically the place becomes a flowers paradise where all shades of pink can be spotted! It’s simply stunning.

🇫🇷 C’est l’époque de l’année ou cette petite enclave dans le coeur du parc de Richmond – la ‘The Isabella Plantation’ – située en proche banlieue londonienne (sud-ouest de la capitale) se transforme en un lieu enchanteur ou se mêlent mille et une variations de rose. Les azalées sont en fleur et ce lieu devient totalement magique, c’est vraiment grandiose!
