An Instagrammer in London By Holly Cato

I met Holly Cato during my days in London. Holly is a freelance photographer heavily influenced by the people she meets on her daily excursions of London. Making it her mission to pick up an SLR camera and capture street portraits, her photography journey started from humble beginnings using her iPhone camera. Follow her [here] and [here]

London is my playground. Having lived out of the city for three years, coming back gave me a newfound appreciation of this place I call home. Sure London has history in abundance, world famous landmarks and is known for its wet weather, but for me London is amazing because of the interactions I have with people. My iPhone allows me to capture intimate moments without being invasive. It’s also been the perfect tool because I’m never without my phone even if I fail to carry a large heavy camera. I don’t have a favourite place in London, more like favourite moments that have stuck in my mind, like the soft light the shines through the double height palatial windows of the Great Hall in Greenwhich. Or watching a child play with Seagulls in Westminster, Slick city workers walking through fog in London Bridge or exploring rooftops in East London.

  • I’d like to wake up here again - without any expectations... even if it’s just for a little while. What about you?
  • This is my far far away 💞 
Where is yours?
  • I read once that “awareness is what keeps any relationship strong”... so, while I understand that we are the master of our own fate, understand that those around you play a major role in your life, but, don’t ever mistake kindness to weakness... 💫
  • Someone said to me today: “Some people are ‘once in a lifetime’ type of people. There is no upgrade after that.” That’s a whole new level of appreciation. 
Hope you have those people in your life. 
Have a beautiful weekend 💞
  • Take a deep breath, and remember who the f*** you are! ;) Good morning 💞
  • I’ve posted this photo many times and it’s still one of my favorite moments.
I listened to a podcast yesterday and it resonated with me so much on the topic of earning trust in the corporate world “Earning trust: consistency in your behavior - trust is developed and established through consistency in behavior” 
I’ve often said that if you have so much moodiness in your life, you will lack leadership and trust, It’s something I truly believe in people. If you want to earn trust, be consistent in your behavior, in your choices and your words... most importantly, in what you believe in... otherwise, people will pull back. Think about that for your Thursday mood :)
  • It’s been a while since I’ve done a just “pick up and go”. The picture I took from outside my room is a reminder of that time in Kenya. Yep, it’s a giraffe.
Lately, everything has been so planned and that spontaneous “go” is something I sort of miss. 
There are definitely few things I’d want to do... for example drive a motorhome somewhere far far away, surf in the arctic... re-visit Kenya... explore Latin America...those are just few of the things. 
If you were to pick up and go, where would you go and what would you do?
  • Summer in @ourfinland was one of my highlights of 2019. On a mission with @travelwithtjd - we explored the south coast and witness the magic of the midnight sun while driving North West. 
From cabin life by the lake, to glass houses by the sea. We hiked, went on road trips, went island hopping, ate a LOT, took ATVs, did BBQs and jumped into the lake!
Join @dennisstever and I on our @travelwithtjd Finland Summer Series on the 21st of June - 26th June 2020, as we take you through the coast and into the wilderness and experience the summer activities that Finland has to offer.

  • I was always in a hurry to be someone, always in a hurry to become something and do everything I set my mind to. I didn’t waste my time on things or people that would get me nowhere. 
But, I crave a slow life, a simple life filled with adventures. No fast cars or expensive homes and for almost all my life, I’ve built a life in which I almost never needed to escape from. I’ve started my year with intentions to keep me grounded... and I intend to focus more on them. 
This is my beautiful reality and this photo represents that to me.
