To Londinium

The trip to Londinium today felt like an adventure. Years back I used to drive south of London and it'd often trigger panic attacks and my usual aches and pains would go nuclear. Today, I felt calm on the drive down the motorway. When I first saw the hazy blue skyscrapers of London in the distance - I felt giddy, like when I used to see the sea on the horizon on family trips to the beach.

Whilst it only took 80 minutes to get into London, the final mile in the city centre took about 25 minutes, but I was chill, and looking all over the place at the buildings and people etc. Another plus - as traffic jams, especially far from home was a big trigger for my anxiety.

When I took the corner onto London Bridge road, I saw the vast Tower of London on my right, and infront of me, was Tower Bridge. I was astounded by it's height and beauty. It suddenly dawned on me what an honour it will be to have 2 of my pictures in an exhibition housed within one of the towers.

As expected, the foot traffic of tourists was immense - and it's a great way to get my work seen by people from all over the world.

A few days back I made a new friend - someone very inspirational and with a lovely warmth to their personality. I invited them to tomorrow's private viewing and they said yes. So I'm glad I'll have someone to share the experience with.
