This is a purely self-indulgent post. I have five million more pictures of London just sitting on my computer and it seems a pity not to share them, or so it appears to me. If I am being honest, I wish I was back in London right now and this gives me an excuse to dream a bit. I hope you enjoy my completely random selection of photographs.
The pictures above are all from Greenwich. We love wandering through the park there and when you get to the top, up by the Greenwich Observatory, there are some great views of London. There is also a nice Oxfam bookshop in Greenwich so I wasn't book deprived during this outing which we all know is the most important consideration.
St. Paul's, the Millennium Bridge, five million professional photographers. I felt like a fraud, snapped a few photos and moved on.
Do you ever debate with yourself whether you would live in the city or the country if you had your choice? I do all the time because I like to complicate my life with completely unnecessary conundrums. I think the city is wonderful because of the cultural opportunities and the restaurants and the public transport and...the list just goes on and on. But then the country, with the peace and the quiet and the lack of people. I think I need a flat in London and a cozy cottage in the countryside and I will split my time between the two. I'm so glad we have that settled.
I have said it before and I will say it again. London just makes me happy. And pictures of London also make me happy. Now if there was just some way to acquire that London flat....
