I am sitting on the doorsteps in the heart of Chelsea waiting for my clients. I am a photographer and thanks to my trade I move a lot around the city in search of new beautiful locations.
Places, I know, have heart and soul. They might reveal themselves right away, but sometimes they leave you cold and indifferent. You meet places just like you meet people. Often smaller places are easier to understand: all those instantly lovable little cafes with a handful of customers, those remote desolate gardens, those single benches in the middle of parks that look like oases of comfort and inspiration. But sometimes… you arrive in a big, vibrant, crowded city, the place from your school-books, the-capital-of-great-britain cliché in your mind, where you never really wanted to travel, and you realize it’s your soul place. The two of you meet and it’s magic.
