I love my family. I love the life that we have. I don’t love that I can’t travel very often. Well, let me clarify by saying travel painlessly very often. Two strollers, two car seats, four plane tickets, umpteen paid pieces of luggage later, our family might make a flight. Easier, my friends, to travel via Instagram. Wouldn’t you say?

I’m excited to post the first in a series on the best places to photograph in certain cities. The landmarks, scenes, places in cities that we love to visit, and love to see in the most beautiful light.

Let’s go to London. Let’s see beautiful architecture, striking colors, let’s drink in the best pubs, soak up the rain, let’s live like Londoners do. Here are the top ten places you bloody well photograph if you happen to be there.
