Notting Hill Carnival with LG G3

All photos taken with the LG G3 smartphone and it's sassy 13MP camera

I had the pleasure of attending Notting Hill Carnival with one of the new LG G3 smartphone in hand and my best gal Cece in the other  (see sassy girl with shirt around waist). I usually carry my camera with me everywhere, but since I didn't fancy lugging a big bag around the Carnival having something that both functioned as a phone and a pretty darn good camera worked perfectly - even though the search for cell service when you lost someone was almost soul destroying. Had way too much fun using the hand gesture selfie function and was pretty dumbfounded when it still had battery after hours of playing around on it. We spent a few hours in the afternoon hunting down the best smelling jerk chicken, drinking rum from a coconut and admiring the costumes that filled every nook and cranny of my favourite neighborhood. I wore my favourite trainers and did the indie thing by wrapping a denim jacket around my waist even though it was twenty degrees. I had the intention of taking some streetstyle shots but let's face it, it was carnival and everyone was smashed. I'm not gonna be the person trying to get someone to stand up straight for a photo in a crowd of millions. I do regret not getting a selfie with a police man though...I guess I'll just have to go back next year...
Did you go? Did you try the jerk chicken? Because I could live off that stuff.

  8. I'm so jealous that you got to go to Notting Hill Carnival, though I was partying away at Leeds Fest so I can't really complain! Your phone photographs turned out pretty darn impressive, and I'm digging the indie denim jacket round your waist - love it!
