The birds singing in the trees, the smell of the grass, the sound of the wind dancing through the branches of the trees – the park is one of my favorite places to be. Time slows down whenever I’m placed inside its oasis.
A couple of days ago I came across Brooke Harwood’s Tumblr. She’s a girl who lives in London who captures the softest photos of moments. I stumbled across some photos she had taken inside some of London’s parks and thoughts came flowing back. Most days in London I used to ride my bike… past the Double Decker buses, past the Natural History Museum through Knightsbridge to Hyde Park where I used to sit for hours on a bench watching the Queen’s swans sail elegantly passed me. For a few hours I would forget about the hustle and bustle of London City; I would forget about time for a while. I was light. The park is one of my favorite places to be.
