London Calling (again). 

So here it is: I am giving away a brand new case for a Samsung Galaxy S5 and all you have to do is drop me a quick message with the answer to the following question: 

'In which two cities are Caseable products handcrafted?’

Could it be any easier?! The winner will be randomly selected on 16th July 2014. 

LONDON CALLING!!!

You know the feeling when you see a perfect situation unfold in front of you, you lift the camera up, you take a snap. Then you realize you’ve actually got a big fat zero - these things are harder than they look! We talked to caseable’s Ronya Galka, a London based street photographer, to find out…

When I saw these two ladies watch a street performer in London’s Convent Garden, I was mesmerised by the pure joy and childlike amazement with which they watched his performance. Every time I look at this picture, I can’t help but smile.

A beautiful reminder of how important it is that we remember to keep life simple and savour the moment every now and then…

Happy damn Monday everyone!

As the sky came pourin down

Tears of sorrow wash his mind 
Drifting with the current 
This stream of life flows on 

He seems alone and silent 
waiting on his hands and knees 
The chill of winter’s darkness sits quietly 

Moved by desire and fear 
he takes a few steps away 

Lifting shadows 
off a Dream once broken
She can turn a drop of water 
Into an ocean 

(I know it starts a little different, but this song came to my mind just after I read the caption under the photo)

'I'll be alright - just not tonight' 

'But first…'
