it's so nice having some film photos to blog rather than my digital ones (or photos taken by other people.) I tend to only shoot film when I go out somewhere which, as I have been so crazily busy with Ladybird Likes stuff, hasn't happened very often! I realise my blog has probably been a little boring and samey as a result, but I'm aiming to take at least one afternoon off each week so I can go out and do something fun, and hopefully take some photos at the same time.
you may find my title for this blog post a bit odd - I know not everyone likes early mornings. I don't some of the time. when I was at school you needed a crowbar to extract my from my bed in the morning. but, as I've grown older I've also grown to love early mornings. I love that feeling of being awake while everyone else is asleep, and of getting things accomplished early on and having the rest of the day free.
one of my favourite early morning activites (ooer!) is a trip to Columbia Road Flower Market. I've blogged about this place many times before - I absolutely adore it. We go there early (about 7am) to get what we want and get out before the hordes of people arrive. Here are a few snaps from our most recent visit.
there is always such awesome street art in East London
a super cute window display in one of the vintage shops - sadly it was closed so I couldn't go in and have a nose (which was probably a good thing!)
rows and rows of the prettiest flowers you ever did see (I love lupins so much)
taking photos of my feet because I'm wearing my favourite converse
chairs made from old American licence plates - they look pretty uncomfortable though
do you like getting up early? or are you a late riser? what things do you like doing early in the morning? I think my car boot sale addiction started my love of getting up early - I always associate early morning with car boot sales, or with going on holiday, both of which are pretty great things!
