PhotoStories | Colour and Serendipity on Portobello Road
Ever since I got back from Spain, I’ve been missing that raw richness of unabashed colour that assaulted and overhwelmed my senses there. To make matters worse, London is associated with ‘grey’ more often than with any other colour. Then I remembered Portobello Road. For nothing screams colour in London than this famous curving street lined with Victorian terraces, antiques dealers and funky boutiques. Set in the heart of Notting Hill (yes, the setting for that film), this street is an antique bargain hunter’s delight. I did not visit on a Market Saturday, but I still came away with ample colour therapy to last me a while – along with a healthy dose of serendipity.
All in an afternoon’s work. Serendipity will find you, if you only know where to look!
