Being a tourist in my home town


Last night I spent the night in London, the place where I grew up but left many years ago now. I must say I felt like a country bumpkin and according to ‘her indoors’ also looked like one. It was the dilapidated 20 year old Barber I am sure

I went for my first London Net Model gathering and another rowdy bunch they were too.

I especially enjoyed my wander around Covent Garden and Trafalgar Square. The sights, sounds and smells were a delight. Christmas is definitely upon us with carol singers singing in the square itself and the buskers wailing out Christmassy things.

I stayed at my sister’s flat down on Shad Thames, no view from there but great surrounds and some marvelous pictures by Joe Cornish. The new one sitting on the floor would make anyone drool. A London scene that makes you gasp.

I woke up this morning later than normal, no chickens, dogs and cats to attend to, so did not catch the golden light. As I walked to the tube station, I couldn’t resist this one, Hope you enjoy it.

Tower Bridge - A December morning

Good to be back home in front of a warm fire but thank you little sister for your hospitality, I switched everything off that was supposed to be switched off and left the sheets on the bed in case we come back again soon.
