After missing the torch in my local area I thought I’d have a walk up to the South Bank to see the final day of it’s tour of the UK.
well… how many people were out… blimey! I thought the Jubilee was crowded until it started raining and cleared slightly.
I’m not tall enough even with my camera waving over my head blindly snapping pics along with several million (?!) others to get a clear view but did manage to glimpse the golden boat – the £1 million Gloriana, which arrived in front of City Hall and waved its oars in the air in salute to the crowds. I did wonder how they were moving the torch to City Hall but it turned out it doesn’t go anywhere and actually ‘rests’ until later that evening where they displayed amazing fireworks… which I missed as I was daft enough not to find out what was happening before hand… I think the last image, the children in the fountain – looks far more fun than trying not to step on anyones toes and not get crushed!
get back to work! lol
I always think that I should go down to the Thames ‘beach’ when it’s low-tide but I’m usually wearing converse shoes – not so good in muddy wet conditions but I thought sod it… last Monday I popped down to a part that wasn’t too muddy but the stairs were covered – so now my converse are covered in mud, the back of my coat and my jeans were splattered yet all that happened when I was going back up the steps lol… oh well… I did get this picture though:
Prints can be brought from my website – if you get stuck or have any questions (or would prefer it as a digital download instead of printing through one of the available linked printers then let me know – email me and I’ll try to help )
a Monday morning walk which ended up being 9 miles… I think the chocolate croissant was well deserved after that!
some ‘modern trees’… the lovely birch trees outside the Tate Modern, London and below shows the sky reflected in some office buildings near London Bridge. Prints can be brought from my website – see the photography link or from Society6
I had a go at wedding photography! ok… I’ve done it once before but that was about 10 years ago
My twin brother’s Wedding was held in Paris (where the couple live) and a sudden heat wave took over for the duration.
and the other being my Niece which was held in Cheltenham back in March which also had spectacular weather!
oh and my Twin and his new wife are expecting their first child… I will be having a Niece called ‘Sola’ !
