Let’s take a small break from the travel photos. Here are some of the photos from a little photo shoot with some friends that basically involved walking around a field for a few hours. We didn’t really plan it in great detail and we just winged it so hahaha yeah this happened. I’m pleased with how the photos turned out though and I still have a couple more to post so watch out!
I sometimes forget how ridiculous people can be when they’re tourists - whether it be making funny poses in front of an iconic location or getting on their knees to get the right shot. I guess it’s because no one knows them and no one is bound to remember them so why the hell not take weird photos of yourself and shoot to your heart’s content!
As expected, it was incredibly busy and there were so many people but it was incredibly beautiful. We only stayed for around five minutes and sadly I wasn’t able to take a photo of its astronomically designed ceiling because too many people were rushing and let’s face it, the last thing you need when you’re running late are tourists blocking your way. I’m slightly agoraphobic too so the large number of people also made me a bit uncomfortable. Nonetheless, the interior of the Grand Central Terminal was phenomenal.
My mum and I watch a show called “Ace of Cakes” and it’s about Charm City City Cakes, a cake shop that creates amazing cakes! We sometimes watch it all day because who can get sick of cakes being made in all sorts of shapes and sizes? They’ve even made a Hogwarts cake (castle and train complete with smoke) for the premier of one of the films. Have a look through their gallery to see more of their cakes.
As you can probably imagine, I was so excited when I found out they happen to be in the same state as my dad’s because that meant I can go to their shop! Seeing their shop was pretty awesome because it’s one of those “I can’t believe I’m seeing the real thing” moments. It was cake heaven! I wanted to run away with the R2D2 cake but they would’ve easily caught up with me because I would’ve had to stop to eat it.
When I saw Geof, their executive chef, I unintentionally said, “OHMYGOD IT’S GEOF” out loud. Why am I so embarrassing?! But thankfully, he was very nice and he even chatted with us for a couple of minutes.
How I wish there was a British equivalent of Charm City Cakes.
