Gypsy x Around Shrewsbury

WelcomeTo Shrewsbury
WelcomeTo Shrewsbury
I went to Shrewsbury today Tuesday 27th January, I only live thirty five  via train away from the town and I've been through it, waited at the train station countless times but I've actually never been there. Shrewsbury is a town in the Shropshire county part of England though with its close proximity to North Wales you would think it's a welsh town.

Although I was only in the town for purely business purposes I got the chance to wander around a little bit, I managed to browse and see how pretty it is. It has such a great number of charming little independent shops and retailers, something which is slowly becoming rare in North Wales and was really nice to see. I enjoyed the colours, the architecture in Shrewsbury as in a lot of places in the Uk, is a mixture of preserved old buildings, modernised and new buildings all living together side by side harmoniously creating an interesting visual relationship which is quintessentially British.

Gypsy x Lake Of Stars 2014 finale

DAY 3
We woke up in our usual hangover fashion, haha. This time we were a bit sad, because it was the final day of the festival so we decided to have a nice browse of the local people's market stalls and also meet and speak to some of the artisans, so this kept our spirits high. We also bought some trinkets, bracelets to be honest, we bought a lot of thrm, and we got gifted a couple too, generosity at LOS!

Gypsy x Lake Of Stars 2014 Part two

DAY 2: Fun Day
Waking up on Saturday the  27th was a real struggle! We were blasted by the sun light, it's rays blasted through the tent like light saber rays in star wars (or something similar lol) and the fact that we both had hangovers (my Photography partners Sipho M Photography's Chona) didn't help us at all. But like true troopers we got up because we were in a place so beautiful and exciting we did not want to miss a thing!
