The electricity bill would make you faint.

That’s not my initial thought standing in God’s Own Junkyard of course.

That’s of pure amazement. But that’s nothing new. I’m a huge fan of Chris Bracey’s neon lights having seen them previously at the Love and Liquid Fire exhibiton in The Southbank Centre and Lights of Soho.

Maybe I was a moth in a past life? Drawn to the bright lights, which there were many. I didn’t expect there to be this many in a random warehouse in Walthamstow.

I absolutely loved taking photos, trying to work out the best settings of bright lights and dark background. I’m still getting used to my Sony a5000 but it did a pretty good job!

God’s Own Junkyard is more than just a rainy day activity in London (although a great one at that). Once you’ve finished thinking about where you’re going to put all those neon lights in your house (yup they’re for sale), give your eyes a break and grab a tea and cake (or two if you’re a greedy so and so like me) at the Rolling Scones cafe (love a punned cafe name).

“Just one tea?”

I didn’t have the heart to tell her both cakes were for me…

They have this really pretty beach hut outside (tranquil even when peeing it down).
