Autumn in Notting Hill


I’ve been walking around London so much this weekend and I’ve realised that I’ve been looking at autumn’s colours for the very first time in my life. I used to hate this period of the year as it stands for the end of the summer and the impending Christmas festivities (😱😱😱). And I dislike the cold, hate hats and gloves and scarves and all of those layers 😭 So, maybe I’m just getting older and appreciative, or simply holding a camera in my hand forces me to search beauty wherever I am. I’m very grateful to @instagram, for this reason,  because being on the constant hunt of the next shot has allowed me to explore London (and many other places), in a completely different way. My eyes and my heart have never been this wide open before and I’m taking in all the beauty around.
Yeah..I might get through the winter too..Will I?

Good rule to start the new week: “If you don’t ask, you don’t get” [Regina Brett 48/50] {suggested soundtrack: Meraviglioso – Negramaro}

  • I love fall! I do love the layers of clothes and the crisp air, but I also love their vibrancy for Instagram 🙂 I live in California and we don’t really get to see the four seasons… I remember going to New York and the colors there were amazing!

    I was in London year ago but I didn’t have a chance to see Notting Hill. Have you been to California or New York?

    • Autumn in New York (and in Canada) are among my wildest dreams! I have been to New York but only in winter and never been to California. I’m planning a long road-trip in the states, I hope to do it next year! 🙂 You should definitely go back to London in Autumn: it’s probably the best season to see it!

    I’ve seen this place but only in a movie of the same name. I liked the scene where the weather changed as Hugh Grant walked. I can imagine fall there would be both cozy and warm. Fall gives way to a new season and I like that thought.

    • Totally agree with you… I used to hate Autumn, but now I understood how significant it is to us, both metaphorically and literally. I remember that scene! So cool! 🙂
