Spring arrived in London

on Saturday, February 25, 2012

Sun is shining and the grass is green. I'm amazed by the fact that you can already sit at outdoor cafes in February. Enjoying it as much as possible as it probably takes another month or two to spring arrive in Estonia.

Thank you for 2011! You are amazing!

  True story: a few weeks back I was asked some personal questions for an interview and one of them was "What's your most beautiful memory?" You're never gonna guess my answer, so I'll give it to you: "My wedding". Those very few fortunate ones that have been to one of my 2 weddings, will know exactly what I'm talking about.
   Turns out I'm a big fan of weddings! Maybe not me, maybe it's just the photojournalist in me, or the melomane in me, or the alcoholic that never really had a chance in me, or the gourmand in me, or the weird in me; one of those guys or all together...
  Watch a few of my 2011 wedding pictures and tell me I'm lying:

   I didn't think so, either!
   Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all my wedding couples from 2011! It has always been a joy and sometimes a challenge, but above all it has been an honor to be part of your celebrations! I wish you only the best and hope to see you at your 50th anniversary! I'll bring my camera if I'll be able to find it and carry it!

Even if you don't think much of contemporary art I would really recommend you visiting the Saatchi Gallery.  They currently have an amazing The Sunday Times Magazine 50th anniversary exhibition, where they showcase the work of some of the world-famous photographers who have contributed to The Sunday Times Magazine since its launch in 1962. You'll see photographs by Don McCullin, David Bailey, Eve Arnold, Snowdon, Sam Taylor-Wood, Terry O'Neill, Uli Weber and many more. The exhibition runs until March 04.
