Prior to the official start of the project, I wanted to connect to the project fully and whole heartedly so I went into Central London with my camera and partner (who had never had the opportunity to see London as a tourist).
This was just a fun part of the project that had no purpose or reason. It was creative, spontaneous and adventurous. However, it was an educational trip for me with a learning outcome that would hopefully help me throughout my project.
Our journey started at Piccadilly Circus where we walked and made any pit stops at as many monumental and historic places I could think of.. In between that we also stopped off for some lunch and snacks. The purpose of this walk was for me to tell a story. The title of the story we agreed would be called ‘A tourists guide to London’ and my objective was to walk her through the streets of London talking about the places we were visiting and even went as far as having to tell a story about the food, snacks and deserts that we were eating.
This was also a perfect opportunity for me to work on my photography techniques.
