  • The World is Huge at the M Museum.

    The World is Huge at the M Museum.

    Museums are usually very large repositories of culture, geography, history and science. They dazzle through their size, their displays, their permanent and temporary installations. You typically need to plan for a whole day out when you visit a museum and take a break mid-visit for refreshment. It happens to me all the time when I…

  • A Weekend At Friends’.

    A Weekend At Friends’.

    I have been spending the last couple of days at my friends’ in Canada Water, a blessed part of London, one stop away from Canary Wharf and promptly serviced by the Jubilee Line. Truly – a reason for jubilation. You could be dealing with the Metropolitan instead. (I don’t deal with the Metropolitan line but…

  • Mad Man(hattan) Skies.

    Mad Man(hattan) Skies.

    One of the best things about Manhattan is the celestial display that goes on above the city. In combination with the flickering lights of its skyscrapers, it makes for a spectacle every dusk and dawn. My favourite spectacles were the ones above Midtown, as seen from Long Island every evening as I used to take…

  • Once upon a very hot Neapolitan day.

    Once upon a very hot Neapolitan day.

    Boy, is Naples hot. In the south of Italy, it boasts summers that are properly hot. The pavement is melting -; you are driving down the street and your car or scooter wheels are gently sinking in the tarmac -; you hydrate and twenty minutes later you have sweated all your hydration -; you are…

    Sunsets in Botswana.

    Dusk. My favorite time of the day. Dawn too actually but unless I’m up at that hour to got to set or a photoshoot I usually just catch the other magic hour, later on the day. African sunsets are my favorite, especially the ones in Botswana. Something about the bronzing in the light blue sky…

  • Chocolate galore.

    Chocolate galore.

    A friend of mine was going through a healthy season last season. One Saturday afternoon, as she was moving house and packing her stuff (all her stuff), she invited a couple of girlfriends over to put everything into boxes, chat and indulge in a couple of glasses of wine and homemade food. The recipe du…

  • Scandinavia on my mind.

    Scandinavia on my mind.

    I fancy a trip to Helsinki when autumn or winter sets in. I am thinking October or early November to pair it up with my birthday (2nd of November if you are asking. I live for this day 364 days a year). I am thinking I will make a list of the main things to…

  • The design lesson.

    The design lesson.

    Design flows with the purpose it meets and changes colour, material and shape to become a part of its environment every time it is created. It flows with the age it is created in and progresses with time. It renews for existing circumstances, though its past forms are regarded as important milestones on the timeline…
