A while back me and some flatmates went for a walk, and in the middle of this beautiful rapeseed field we found an abandoned sofa. My camera was at hand so what to do seemed obvious. Made a good profile picture anyway, we think the image above would make a great promotional shot for a sitcom.
Me and my flat got our heads together a thought up a great Christmas shopping list. The next step was to buy the food, the following step was the cooking. Well I was busy studying during the shopping part but of course I was present for the eating and taking photographs. It was an absolutely brilliant meal, good enough to give Christmas dinner back home a run for it’s money.
I was really impressed we managed to feed 11 people. Now I’m home for the Christmas holiday but it has to be said I am missing all of them. On a brighter note it’s great to see everyone from back home and that they are all healthy and well. Of course it has to be said I’m thrilled to be back in London. Enjoy the photos below!
Meeting people from abroad via the internet was always a bit weird for me. You can never be certain they are who they say they are. Look at the film catfish for goodness sake. Yet I’m not against it at all. I have met some great people from abroad. One being Khánh a photography enthusiast from Vietnam. The Internet can connect us to people with similar interests and personalities we would never be able to meet in every day life. As long as you are careful you can find some really brilliant people. Khánh sent me a touching letter, friendship bracelet and a postcard from Vietnam, it sort of made my week. Now I understand why people used to value letters so much more than we value emails for example. There will only ever be one copy of a letter, yet an email can be reproduced countless times. I find people’s handwriting is also much more personal. So once again thank you Khánh and one day perhaps our paths will cross in real life.
