Wow. I think that one word sums up the culinary journey my tastebuds have been on this lunchtime. With a nice and simple decor, the restaurant takes up a large part of the floor at the Mandarin Hotel, London. Service was up to speed and our waitress looked after us very well. I had Hay Smoked Mackerel, Royal Beef and the Chocolate Bar, whilst Mia had Meat Fruit, Powdered Duck and Tipsy Cake. The meat fruit (above) was absolutely out of this world. I was very tempted to ask for seconds, and maybe thirds. What’s most unusual is that it comes in the form of a mandarin which looked really realistic. There are more pictures below but if you’d like a full review then head over to Unlawfully Yours to read Mia’s full review.
Whilst out today I saw some lovely red roses for sale and remembered that we’re not too far away from the 14th February. I decided to grab one and take a few pictures, then I thought I might as well make some cards for people to download. So here here you go.
The gallery below shows you the design of each card, click on the image to download the PDF. Each card is set up on A4 paper so just print it on some nice quality card, fold it in half and write a suitably heart warming message inside.

My new business cards have arrived from Moo.com! The quality of them is really good, I have to keep stopping myself from flicking through them to see how nice they are. The plan is to continually have the last fifty of my best shots printed out to top up supplies, keeping each card different and it’s own little work of art. I’ve used Moo for quite a few things now and I really like their Minicards, but I thought a regular business card shape would suit photographs better.
I’ve just got back from the Cirque Du Soleil – Totem press shoot at Liverpool Street Station, London. It involved a handful of the cast, in full attire, monkeying around and interacting with the public and actors. I love how little attention Londoners give to a man in a monkey suit prancing around beside them. The characters staged the famous March of Progress pose, as seen above, and had great fun stealing copies of The Metro from passers by and generally causing a great big scene. There were also people on hand to give out free Totem branded Oyster Card holders. (more…)
