Columbia road flower market

I have wanted to visit Columbia road flower market for a while and with my recent photography project documenting the journey of the flower, I thought it would be the perfect time to go and take some photos.

As it doesn't have all the attractions that Southbank on the opposite side of Westminster has, it is a lot quieter which makes for a rather peaceful stroll. I thought I would take a few photos on … Continue reading Photography project – Albert embankment
