London Streets

About a week ago I visited a very generous friend in beautiful Londontown. A couple more posts to follow on my trip, but for now I wanted to focus on one of my favorite points of inspiration  - the architecture.

I stayed in the neighborhood of Marylebone - equally close to the hustle and bustle of Regent Street shopping and the serene Regent’s Park - Marylebone streets are lined with well-preserved historic buildings. While exploring, I focused on capturing buildings with striking door or window details. It was not super evident to me at the time, but as I was combing through my photos from the trip, it was clear that I was especially drawn to rounded frames that juxtaposed the grid structure of the streets.

I, of course, had to sneak in a few pictures from an afternoon spent in Notting Hill too....the colored townhouses were gorgeous!
