I think the feeling is mutual. Everyone we met, and I mean literally everyone was so warm and friendly to us. Yes, most of the people did recognize Ed but for the few who didn't they made their city seem like a home away from home. And in all honesty we were considering canceling our trip after hearing a show on NPR about Glasgow being the murder capital of Europe!!! Ed did do some further research and read all kinds of stories about the "Glasgow smile", that I don't really want to go into detail about it. If you really want to know what it is you can look it for yourself. I think after some thought we just realized that any city can have it's negative points, it's just a matter of doing a little, (or a lot) of research and being smart about your choices. We learned which areas to avoid and we did. All I can say is is that I can't wait to go back!!! And I didn't even mention all delicious vegan food there!!!!!
No ammo, just a fashion accessory.
I wish I would've taken 2 steps closer! This young woman was so nice when I stopped her for her photo. I just loved how well dress and put together she was. I blew the photo though. I think sometimes I get to excited and just spaz out on people.

Went away again,

This time I went to Barcelona, (Ed had to shoot something for the New York Times style mag travel issue!) Glasgow, (our first time, and we LOVED it!) and then London.
The photo up above is actually an old photo shot from a parking garage rooftop in downtown San Diego. I just thought it worked well for this post.
This photo of Big Ben wasn't from this trip, actually all the photos from this post were shot from a previous trip we took last November. We just dropped off our film yesterday to get developed and won't get the proof sheets back until this Friday.
I'm usually behind anyway...
Banksy did a giant reproduction of the board game Monopoly for London's version of Occupy Wall Street.
The tents and Rich "Uncle" Pennybags are there no more.

This photo would've been a 100 times better if I would of waited for a train to come along in the background. Oh well.
