Little adventures in London: Camden Town

Uncategorized

Hello!

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted something but it’s been pretty full on with A-levels. However, I’m here now to update you with all the fun things I’ve been getting up to.

There are many places in London that I usually go to if I wanted to get some inspiration and to have a good time. But I have to admit that  Camden is one place that I will never get bored of. This place will always be great for its cultural and artistic features.  I particularly enjoy and love the markets, foods and the people.

Another trait in which Camden Town is known for, is the art. There is always something art-related occurring and it’s inspiring. As I was walking along the pavements heading towards the Regents Canal, there is a man who simply sits down on the floor and has pieces of printings and chalks. Usually the printed papers are portraits of well known icons such as Amy Winehouse and Nelson Mandela, however he simply analyses these images so well and creates wonderfully made portraits on the streets of Camden – only from chalk as his medium – which I think is pretty amazing. The only worrying thing is that he knows that this art won’t last very long (rainy England of course) yet he continues to do it.

 

 

 

 

As I went here with my nerd bestfriend, we decided to visit the ‘Mega City Comics’, comic book store which is located behind some market stalls. This place has really good deals and coming from someone who doesn’t know much about comic books – it’s still pretty amazing. It is filled with different genres, from superheroes to Anime. There is something for everyone. Really, you could even simply admire the art of it.

Anyways, hope you’ve enjoyed reading this post and I hope to continue to share my experiences with you (even if it is poorly timed).

Until the next time,Tammy xx
