On the move from South to North London I got this great capture of Lettering by the entrance to the former Blackfriars Road station in London.
The station was opened in 1864 and closed almost five years later in 1868 when it was replaced by the station now called Waterloo East. 24th November 2011.
Just getting used to living in North London again after a year in Kennington. Always seems North keeps pulling me back and I’ve realised it is very much part of my life. I’m enjoying having Finsbury Park on my doorstep as well, with the cyclists, runners and free exercise areas making it a hive of activity.
I had a client meeting today which took me to the heights of their building and this spectacular view. With the Shard building up in the background and the iconic Gherkin and the beautiful Heron Tower in view, it was truly spectacular sight!
I had a quick drink after work this evening and found a great pub in the back streets of Kings Cross. Inside this woman was having a drink to herself, all dolled up and looking like something out of the 50′s. It made me think what she was thinking about – the past, present or future and what the parallels are between her thoughts and mine. In any case it’s moments like that which ground you to humanity and our journeys in life.
Last weekend I thought I’d visit my parents in North London. I love their place as it’s full of some strange, wonderful and nostalgic items which make great photos. They are very house proud and I’ve gained the same love of collecting quirky items to put on shelves…
It’s been a black and white day today. I like the grit of how London and especially Soho looks in mono. Tomorrow will be a day of colour vibrancy through work but in life you need to balance things out don’t you…
