Eclectic London Collage by Liz Nehdi
I’m lucky enough to call London my home. It’s diverse, vast and offers a feast for the eyes. Basically it’s perfect for a creative like me who’s constantly hungry for visual stimulation.
Over the past few months I’ve shared photos from my neighbourhood and I’ve decided to turn this into a series of vignettes that offer a glimpse into the everyday surroundings that catch my eye and inspire me.
In case you missed them and are hankering for a taste of Notting Hill, you can find my past posts here and here.
I hope you enjoy!
All photos were taken by me. See below for some context around the individual images
The backs of quintessential brick rowhouses against a beautiful blue early summer evening sky. A study of colour, texture, composition and form. Photo taken from a mews in Notting Hill
Layers of graffiti on a wall just off Portobello Road in Notting Hill. Yes, I love traditionally beautiful things and scenes, but I’m also attracted to a bit of grit. The combination of lyrical tags, alternation between hard lines and blurred edges and pops of bright colour against a slightly textured neutral background draw me in
The Trellick Tower is a controversial landmark in North Kensington. It was designed in the late 1960s by Brutalist architect Erno Goldfinger. Let’s just say that it isn’t exactly beautiful from all angles, but in this shot it definitely makes a strong statement against a blue sky with puffy white clouds. A study in composition, pattern and form
A Moorish iron gate guards the entryway to this Notting Hill home. Yes, I love bright colours, but nothing sets them off quite like black and white. A study in pattern (on pattern), scale and composition
