City: London

By day I work in the photography industry but in my spare time I like to wander, write, play with my plastic cameras, watch trash television, peruse galleries, sip ciders and soak up the best that London has to offer. I'm Australian but have been living in this chilly city for nearly a year. Follow me on twitter with @karysrhiann or view my first love blog at
