we have decided that tuesdays are not for racing home from work, cooking dinner and slumping, slack-jawed on the couch in front of the telly (not that we have one). tuesdays are for venturing out to see what goodies london has to offer.

tonight, our first successful excursion, began with wine at vinoteca; with me looking totally white middle-class, swilling my wine & sniffing at it looking all fancy & shit after going to a wine tasting course last saturday with husband & friends. it gets really busy in there and there was already a 90-minute wait for a table when we got there at 6.30. we’ll go back there for dinner some other day…

then we wandered up the road to pho, for tasty vietnamese.

clerkenwell, you were a favourite haunt of dickens in his time and i’m sure you’ve got many secrets to share with us.

london, i can’t wait to explore your streets and alleyways more in the weeks to come.

  • I’m looking forward to hearing about your explorations!
    I really want to go to Vinoteca, and must make that a priority for my year. Have you been to Wahaca? That’s on my list too. I get excited thinking about all the eating options here :)

  • Oh you fill me with a sense of longing. I spent 2 days in London this past summer and didn’t see a thing. Was sick in bed in my hotel room the entire time!!! What a bummer..I was so looking forward to seeing that beautiful city. It strangely feels like a second home to me…I can’t explain. Maybe I can make it back one day and maybe just maybe we could meet and you could show me some of the wonderment that London has within it’s gorgeous limits.

  • Those are really nice shots, especially the wine glass one :-) I’m hoping to explore some of London this year at some point too!

  • Love that first photo in particular, Leonie. It makes me reassess my prejudices — I wouldn’t have thought to have tilted the camera (I have an aversion to liquids running down out of the frame: e.g. tilted horizons in seascapes usually drive me nuts). Here, though, it works really well. Maybe the angle suits the rectangular frame well, making it more dynamic — a straight up-and-down shot might have been too static.

    Nice light and subtle colours, too.
