As it was sunny and warm I decided to collect flora for my xmas card this year. With that in mind I went to Waterlow Park up Highgate Hill in north London, to photograph the autumn leaves, colours and shapes in the gardens and the kitchen garden. While I was there I met a grandad with his granddaughter and we threw bread to the gulls and photographed them in the air – great fun!
And the next day, Subs and I got the bus to Jack Straw’s Castle and walked down the hilly paths on Hampstead Heath – it was a glorious day with blue sky and warm sun. We went to the Polish cafe after and had hot bean soup and coffee and apple cake.
