The years are whizzing by at an increasingly alarming rate. 2016 was a bit of a shocker, and 2017 looks set to be full of Trump-based carnage, so I’m seeking solace in photo montages. Twelve months ago, this shiny new version of Matt The List didn’t exist, I hadn’t started editing with Lightroom yet, and I was still using my original camera kit. Now, equipped with some tasty lenses and a borrowed 5D Mark II, I’m starting to feel like less of an amateur; and to cap it all off, the site has reached the finals of the UK Blog Awards 2017 for photography. Huzzah! Anyway, below are thirty of my favourite photos from adventures around London this year – I hope you enjoy them. I’ll follow up with a Matt The Trips highlights reel soon with snaps from Brussels, Copenhagen, Paris, Edinburgh, USA and Canada.
