Monthly Roundup: February 2019

The time has flown so quickly these past few weeks and they’ve been enjoyable to say the most despite working three days a week, but the weather towards the end of February has been absolute bliss!

Without further ado, I will take a summarised look-back at the photo moments and other things I’ve published over the course of February.

1.2.2019 – Everyone wrapped up warm due to the blisteringly cold weather at the start of February whilst it was Snowmageddon.

2.2.2019 – When social media and smartphones go together, it’s not for the right reasons.

3.2.2019 – It was good to capture Croydon from Different Perspectives knowing that No. 1 Croydon was the place to be after it was recently featured in the Netflix Original Series, Black Mirror: Bandersnatch.

5.2.2019 – I couldn’t resist seizing the opportunity to photograph Croydon at night!

7.2.2019 – TIMEtoTalk was all about coming together to support mental health, so if you are or know someone who suffers/battles a mental health condition, it’s okay to open up and say how you really feel.

The Saffron Tower in Croydon is a beautiful sight for sore eyes at night!

8.2.2019 – Croydon sure was in the midst of a storm considering there were strong gusts of wind and some bouts of rainfall.

15.2.2019 – Stop & Search is often a useful way to protect the public from potential harm and dangers that occur in everyday life, but in most places in Croydon and London, it’s not often you see some places with security barriers, which is a common worry for the public’s health and safety, but it’s become a common security complex that is now considered controversial amongst some because they feel it is an invasion of privacy.

17.2.2019 – If you’re looking to grab a bite, perhaps a drink, or even want to play a game of table tennis, look no further than BOXPARK Croydon.

The beauty of Mother Nature always lies under the clouds.

If you’re in a hurry to grab a quick bite of food, look no further than Yumn!

18.2.2019 – BOXPARK feels like the Hollywood of Croydon due to the visibly eye-catching BOXPARK signs and is a good place to socialise even on your days off.

20.2.2019 – Need to grab a quick bite of food or some bubble tea? BAO BAO has got you covered!

Are you ready for real food that loves you back?

If you’re ready for some Greek on the Street, head to BOXPARK to whet your tastebuds with their menu that is based on the Mediterranean diet with produce from Greece, Cyprus and the United Kingdom!

22.2.2019 – It’s a shame the best business in town closed its doors in the Croydon Whitgift Centre on Sunday 17th February 2019, but it was good to capture a photo of Starbucks in the Whitgift Centre as it’s a piece of history I want to preserve for the future generations to see and appreciate.

26.2.2019 – When Croydon is quiet and there are not very many people out and about in Croydon during the night hours, Centrale is in the dead of night as everything falls silent.

The weather was wonderful in New Addington on Saturday 23rd February, though Spring barked like dogwoods on Monday 25th February whilst I was on my way to Addington Hills.

27.2.2019 – Mother Nature certainly put a spring in her step on the 23rd February whilst me and a close friend were at Addington Hills, and the weather was beautiful too, which was no wonder as to why the sky was the limit for Addington Hills.

Thanks for such a great month, everyone! This month has been a lot more productive than January and it feels good to keep publishing content regularly but I’ve got a lot more content coming soon so keep your eyes peeled for the content I’m publishing in March, you don’t want to miss it! Also, keep your eyes peeled for the photos I produced whilst I was at Addington Hills on Monday as they’re going up very soon!

Until then, thanks so much again for making February such an interesting month and I’ll see you all in March!
