2 million strong. 🇭🇰 Yesterday’s protest in Hong Kong was the most incredible gathering I’ve ever witnessed - I have never seen so many people stand up for their rights in a demonstration of this scale and the passion demonstrated against what is a very scary situation. If you are not aware of what is currently going on and have a spare minute please take the time out to inform yourself further about the extradition bill and also the current situation in Sudan. With everyone of us on Instagram having some form of reach I feel where possible it’s important to bring awareness to what is going on in the world. Here’s a series of some of my favourite photos I took of the events yesterday...

Down In the belly of the beast. It’s no secret to many that Stockholm’s metro system is seemingly otherworldly, looking beyond just the main escalators it’s considered to be the worlds longest art installation with the walls of stations decorated by over 150 artists (I’m beginning to sound like a Wikipedia article now...) I’ve also had this shot printed on my wall for months now, just finally got round to sharing it along with a few others😅

The eye of the storm. ☁

An icon by air. 🚁

X marks the spot. Rainy London lookups in city last weekend. I also just posted a story with a series of shots I took in London recently so check them out if you haven't seen them yet! Hope everyone has a great week ✌️

Bridging the gap beneath NYC.

Oh hey there instagram. Shot this time last year from @sg_skygarden.

As much as it would be great to spend Christmas in New York, I'm very grateful to be at home this year with awesome people around me. 🇬🇧 Hope everyone has a great Christmas wherever you are and a happy new year! 🎄

Stroll into the unknown. 🌆 More NYC pics coming your way, which reminds me it's been a while since I've been out and about in London, need to get out there again soon! 📷

The waiting game🚶| 10K wow. A massive thank you to everyone who follows me, never really given it much thought but over 10,000 people following my work is really humbling and I appreciate the support from each and every one of you it means the world - thanks for sticking round! ✌️ This calls for some form of celebration in the shape of 2 posts in 2 days which never happens... But I'm working on being more active, lots of cool shots to share with you guys! 👀

Bladerunner 2049 vibes. | I'd probably be late to work everyday if this pedestrian tunnel was in the 🇬🇧

360 days till Halloween ft. Stockholm's narrowest street 🦇

The gatekeeper. | One thing I've always been grateful for with Instagram is how great the community is. I shot this 2 weeks ago exploring London with @wayfaring.professional and @dephreq, awesome to be able to connect with other creatives who's work you've admired from the other side of the world 🌍

'The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.' | 🚉 Spent a good 15 minutes waiting for a train to come in and line up perfectly here and was finally rewarded. As some of you know Stockholm has an extensive subway system full of art exhibitions which are 100% worth a visit - I am currently putting together a story showcasing some of the locations and photos I took while I was there so keep an eye out for it when it drops 👀. Hopefully it can help you out if you ever visit!

Split the difference. | Was a rainy but successful @openhouselondon this year. PRO TIP: To all of you who are photographers or who just simply enjoy attending every year I highly recommend volunteering. You get to pick where you can volunteer (usually 3-4 hours) and get a guide and a queue skip priority pass for the whole weekend for your efforts 👀

It's a state of mind. 🚁 @flynyon

4:32pm 🕒 - timeless streets. Was good to repay London a visit after an extended break. In other breaking news I'm off to Stockholm in 2 days time ✈ if any of you guys have any recommendations or are based out there drop me a DM, woud be great to connect. 👊

Keep it shaken not stirred.
