Today I want to share with you how you can make your mobile photos look more professional. You don’t need an expensive DSLR to take clear and sharp photos, whether it’s for your blog, Etsy shop or just for Instagram. I know some photographers who have used their mobile shots for big marketing posters, so impossible is nothing really. Clean lenses A while ago I realized something that plays a…

Not a long time ago I found a trick how to make a photo of a building much better. You know when you see a beautiful object and want to snapshot it in the way you see it, but then when you check your phone you realize that perspective is wrong? Instead of a perfect rectangle or square windows, you get something reminding a trapeze? Very beautiful, right? One type…

This is one of three ‘Grind’ coffee shops in London. Holborn Grind review was one of my first posts here on the blog, and here is the first Grind in the city – Shoreditch Grind.

What I always liked in London is local markets, whether it’s fresh vegetables stalls or designer accessorizes. There are several well-known markets in the city – Portobello Road, Borough Market and Spitalfields to name a few. But what attracts me more are small areas, usually just one street called a market. They are not busy with tourists and are a nice place to hang out at the weekends. Actually you…

Ozone Coffee Roasters is known to be one of the most popular artisan coffee shops in London. The possibility to dine there makes this place attractive from early morning until late evening. I was greeted by a very nice girl who let me choose my own seat. This was a good beginning because I generally like such a freedom – to choose the table. It can sound weird, but … Anyway, there…
