I was walking home from work at the beginning of July, when I saw Natacha photographing a gorgeous model in front of my apartment. It's not often I bump into other young fashion photographers, so of course I said hi! Three weeks later, naturally, I have a new Brazilian best friend who is teaching me Portuguese, and I may be travelling to South America next year. I've even modelled for one of her conceptual pieces.
Natacha hasn't been in the UK long, so it's refreshing to see the beauty of England through her eyes, and camera. I've lived in Milton Keynes for 11 years now, yet hadn't explored the fields 2 miles away until last week. Don't you ever do that? Taking home, be it your neighbourhood, city or country for granted? I'll guess so.
Maybe it's time to get out there with your camera again. Take a picnic blanket to lie down in the sun. And some scotch eggs to distract the hunger on your adventure. You really can't beat scotch eggs.
And say hello to that stranger. Especially that one you pass on your way to work or the shops every now and again. You never know what might happen. But most importantly...
