We’ve just got back from a long weekend exploring Kent. We stayed in a fancy apartment in Whitstable (which was already one of my fave places), and also explored Margate and Broadstairs.

Since I last visited Whitstable, so many awesome shops have appeared on the high street. Ruskin, Frank and Flory & Black were particular favourites. Being inside them for 30 seconds made me want to paint and draw and screenprint and bake and redecorate my house and start dressing better.

There was also the obligatory visit to the Turner Contemporary in Margate, as well as the obligatory coffee in Morelli’s in Broadstairs. And chips on the beach, of course. And a couple of fantastic Turner-esque sunsets.

G was using my favourite 35mm camera, so I pretty much used my phone camera for the whole weekend. I did sneak a few frames in though, when he wasn’t looking:

Coffee & Stripes

I’ve now been taking a photo a day for 2436 days. A couple of days I met my mum for coffee and cake, and the resulting image ended up being my photo for that day. Looking back on my photos from similar meetings, I noticed a trend. I feel like it might become self-perpetuating, and now she’ll end up changing her clothes just to go for coffee.
