An unlikely location

After having started out doing street photography, I always felt most at home whilst shooting outdoors “on location”.

I recently met an amazing woman whose words very much resonated with me and who very much inspired me in many ways.

Compelled I was to write this review, after a delightful and delicious morning down at The Hampshire Hog.

Several times had I passed this place whilst traversing along King Street before a travelling friend invited me for a farewell brunch at this cosy little gastro pub in Hammersmith which, I must say, took me by surprise.
