London can offer you the world… if you book for it with at least 5 months notice! Unfortunately, even after almost one year spent in this city, we still don’t master this skill. Halloween was one of these cases. We had so many commitments in October that neither me nor Isa came up with a plan or an idea for the Hallloween night and, when we tried to organize something, we had to accept that our task was hopeless because all the events were, of course, sold out.
Determined not to let the city win, we decided to celebrate it with an afternoon photoshoot followed by a dinner with Joana and Karolis at ours. Isa loves playing with make up and she is incredibly good at it. She found a youtube tutorial and she tried it on her own face with a stunning outcome, then came my turn. We left home to discover that, even if London is used to whatsoever kind of oddness, a skeleton face still draws everybody’s attention (especially when you stop on your way back home for some grocery shopping at Lidl). Our destination was Abney Park Cemetery in Stoke Newington (where Miss Nanna’s “No Time for Tears” was taken: http://andrejrusskovskij.com/?p=1133) and I opted for a black and white photoshoot. Both me and Isa posed in front of the camera this time. Totally not an effort when the only direction was to keep your face still and neutral!
