I have been fortunate enough in being invited to the premiere of Amar Adatia’s hit film ‘Retribution’ this coming month in Leicester Square.
(A suicidal girl falls in love with a fallen angel) And starring Amar Adatia, Calum Best, Alex Reid and Daniel Eghan but to name a few.
I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am for this and will be writing my review after the screening so keep an eye on social media and of course here on my website.
September – Kosovo – Pristina
A first for me but I’m very much looking forward to what lies ahead.
Pristina is considered as the heart of Kosovo because of its central location and its importance in finance, commerce, media, entertainment, arts, international trade, education, service, research and healthcare. Almost all domestic and foreign companies, media and scientific institutions have their headquarters in the city.
Dec – Munich
I will be traveling to Munich this month and as per there will be plenty to talk about including some photography.
The city is a major centre of art, advanced technologies, finance, publishing, culture, innovation, education, business, and tourism in Germany and Europe and enjoys a very high standard and quality of living, reaching first in Germany and fourth worldwide according to the 2015 Mercer survey. According to the Globalization and World Rankings Research Institute Munich is considered an alpha-world city, as of 2015.
The name of the city is derived from the Old/Middle High German term Munichen, meaning “by the monks”, which in turn is derived from Mönch (which in the end derives from ancient Greek μοναχός). It derives from the monks of the Benedictine order, who ran a monastery at the place that was later to become the Old Town of Munich; hence the monk depicted on the city’s coat of arms. Munich was first mentioned in 1158. From 1255 the city was seat of the Bavarian Dukes. Black and gold – the colours of the Holy Roman Empire – have been the city’s official colours since the time of Ludwig the Bavarian, when it was an imperial residence. Following a final reunification of the Wittelsbachian Duchy of Bavaria, previously divided and sub-divided for more than 200 years, the town became the country’s sole capital in 1506.
January – Pristina, Kosovo
Kosovo, self-declared independent country in the Balkans region of Europe. Although the United States and most members of the European Union recognised Kosovo’s Declaration of Independence from Serbia in 2008, Serbia, Russia and a significant number of other countries including several EU members did not. Kosovo was admitted to the United Nations (UN)
The name Kosovo is derived from a Serbian place-name meaning, Field of Blackbirds.
The borders of Kosovo are mainly mountainous, characterised by sharp peaks and narrow valleys so, I’m pretty much hoping that I get some real good Photography on my visit.
Feb – California
Including a trip to Palm Springs A city in the Sonoran Desert of Southern California It’s known for its hot springs, stylish hotels, golf courses and spas.
The shopping district along Palm Canyon Drive features vintage boutiques, interior design shops ’which will make me feel right at home’ And restaurants.
Although not confirmed as yet, I will be visiting either Sacramento or Arizona I will update that very soon.
There are other events etc through-out the year which I will update once dates have been confirmed.
