Video: One Day in London
Hello again everyone! Today I bring to you something a bit different. A video! I decided to film what I got up to when I went into London for the weekend just over a week ago.
The clips in the video are pretty much in chronological order. I was with the boyfriend for the day and whenever we go into Central the first stop is always food! Actually. Food is always the first stop no matter who I hang out with. We ended up eating at Dirty Burger because the Korean BBQ place we wanted to originally visit wasn't going to be open until 6pm and it was in the afternoon. Total schoolboy error for not googling if the restaurant was open or not!
Next stop was the Alice in Wonderland Exhibition at The British Library to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the story. The exhibition is free and I believe it's staying until around April. If you love the story and are interested in illustration I recommend checking it out! It's pretty cool seeing and reading about the different versions of Alice. The only disappointing thing about the exhibition was that no cameras were allowed for half of it.
The final destination was Lumiere London with a bit of a hiccup along the way. I left my filter and lens cap at Dirty Burger so we had to go back there first because seeing the light festival *face palm*. Lumiere consists of various light displays and installations that are dotted around London. We didn't manage to see everything because it got really cold as it got later into the night. Also, some displays were a bit...underwhelming. However, there were some pretty awesome one to make up for it. My favourite was probably Les Voyageurs (The Travellers) by Cedric Le Borgne. My video does the installation no justice at all but it was truly beautiful in person.
And that conclude what I got up to in the video! I hope it's enjoyable to watch. I want to set myself more projects like these and hope to make more videos. I seem to be making them at a rate of one per year (my previous and first ever video was about Japan which you can see here). Hopefully that will change!
What did you get up to on the weekend? Mine wasn't as eventful as in the video's as I stayed in haha.
