Capping Off The Kaplan Experience

Hello all, 

As you may or may not have noticed, I've been quiet on R.I.D for several weeks as I have been completing a freelance contract for Kaplan International; helping create their design team produce creative collateral for both print and web!

It has been a great few weeks in Kaplan's West Kensington office filled by a thorough enjoyment of working with the in-house teams there and of course helping to produce the desired design work.

I will post more about this soon, but here's a photo I took a few hours before my departure :)

Amsterdam Aperture

Amsterdam 2016.

It was quite the trip I must say; especially getting to grips with the Amsterdam culture, lifestyle, and remembering that “forward” is on the right hand side of the road and not the left as it is here in England!

I spent an amazing few days there in the Dutch capital, and come leaving day I did not want to go home! Below I will share with you a few of my favourite captures from the trip. Captures are specifically from iPhone (6S+ model) as I did not take my DSLR.

Mother

It's not often that I do family posts on R.I.D, but here is a monochrome photo of my mother I took exactly a week ago.

I took the candid photo on our way out of Liverpool Street station via Bethnal Green. Let me know your thoughts on this capture :)

Curving in Dalston

Yesterday afternoon, I visited the Dalston Eastern Curve Gardens (a cafe with great gardens) near Dalston Junction tube station and caught this unfiltered shot whilst waiting for a friend:

The grey building in the far distance looks as if it has been 'photoshopped' in or generated using architectural software Revit/Rhinoceros 3D (takes me back to my university days!). Quite cool!

Overground at Highbury & Islington

The other day I was on a connection into Shoreditch High Street station via Highbury & Islington and I captured this near monochromatic shot on board the London Overground.
