Though I had visited London a few times before it was not until I was 19 and taken around by locals that I stepped off the traditional tourist trail to discover Camden. My eyes were wide with excitement, it was such a wonderful combination of vibrant and grimy and was the first time that I could see why so many people flocked to the capital; there truly was somewhere for everyone within this eclectic city.
In the first couple of years of moving down here I ventured to Camden Town almost every weekend and though it never lost its appeal I gradually became complacent and happily stayed near home. This year I am trying to get out of my East London rut and explore my city again; so I made the tube journey North to visit the place that captured my heart in the first place.
I love the goth and rock style in Camden so dressed for the occasion in my new oversized skeleton jumper.
We photographed this look on the bridge that joins The Stables Market to the Wetherspoons because when I first moved down and had zero money I used to either sit with stall food and a couple of tinnies at the side of the canal or pop into the Ice Wharf for a cheap pint to pass the afternoons.
Despite the financial stresses, the simple pleasure of sitting nursing a drink and taking in the strange surroundings in the place that I now called home were some of my favourite days.
Are there any places that changed your perspective on somewhere or makes you feel sentimental visiting?
