It was so cold a newspaper in the street froze overnight | a tree full of shoes, no idea | my beautiful friend Ashley from Wise Rabbit Says on one of the fairground rides | one of the wings of the Hamburger Bahnhof art museum | perfectly formed snowflakes fell nearly the entire trip, which I spent wishing I had a macro lens | Berlin architecture | testing the fly eye lens I bought in the Guggenheim museum | morbid exhibits in the Pergamonmuseum

I realised that I never uploaded any photos of my trip to Berlin during my Art Foundation year. It was such a good trip, the first chance we all got to really bond with the group and I've made some wonderful friends from it. Thinking of how nervous I was to go, and that I nearly didn't, makes me realise how much I nearly missed out just because of some ridiculous social anxiety. We packed such a short amount of time full of visits to galleries, museums and interesting places, and still managed to miss a massive amount. Berlin is definitely on my list of places to re-visit. I took hundreds of photos and I made one of my favourite sketchbooks from the course on this trip - it still remains partly unfinished to this day!


  1. I had a chance to combine my two loves in life recently and had a two weeks' holiday in wonderful France, to which I had been before, and had loved so much. I took a little Renault rental car and headed off from Paris, to the Palace of Versailles, to Chartres then southward to sunny Provence, via the Auvergne region, with the Songs of the Auvergne playing repeated on the CD player.
    Magnifique, comme toujours. I saw many art galleries and followed the footsteps of artists, like poor Vincent Van Gogh.
    Back home all too soon, I ordered a canvas print from, choosing this painting by C├ęzanne,, to remember my trip by.
