If you’re only coming to #London to see all the sights on the postcards, I’ll tell you now, London is probably going to disappoint. There are #excellent photographers in this #city; they get just high enough to get the right angle, just low enough to catch every detail. They click at just the right moment, and they know just the time when the lighting is perfect. They do a special trick and get the photographs printed in sepia, and then tint the buses and the phone boxes in bright red!

Needless to say that’s a false perception. London is really the colour of concrete grey, and no amount of red buses can fix that! Pictures taken by a tourist in front of landmarks will never look as good. Big Ben will never stare at you at its own level, always from up and not down. Those flashing ads at Piccadilly Circus will not inspire any feeling other than wanting to buy some Coke and get on with life.

The real London isn’t about a pretty picture. It’s all about the people. If you want #quality from your trip then go to places like Brixton, Shoreditch, Shepherd’s Bush and Kilburn, where you’ll see people live their real lives. That is really something to take home with you.
