In the shade of the chestnut tree

I am not sure, that it was actually a chestnut tree, but thought it sounded good in the title. The scene looked very peaceful only, marred by the smartphone. In time our grandchildren will no doubt think of smartphones as strange old fashioned gadgets. Camera Fuji x100s

The conversations

We were enjoying our dinner at Garfunkel's in Victoria Station, when this young couple stopped outside. They were both involved in lively conversations, with what  was obviously two different persons. We would normally have found their behaviour irritating, but they were both so spontaneously happy, that we found it amusing Camera Nikon D5000

Getting ready for the day

Close to our usual hotel in Bloomsbury is Burton Street. There one morning, on our way into town, we passed The  Maghreb Bookshop that specialise in a wide range of books on The Maghreb, The Middle East, Islam and Africa. The proprietor Mr Mohamed Ben-Madani was outside cleaning windows in readiness for the day's business Camera Nikon D5000

In the footsteps of John Betjeman

On the upper level of the redeveloped St. Pancras Station is a monument to Sir John Betjeman, Poet Laureate of United Kingdom, who is credited with saving St. Pancras from demolition. With its soft constant light it is a place worth visiting and photographing. Next to St. Pancras is Kings Cross Station, infamous for the dreadful fire in 1987. It has been totally renovated and the curved glass roof of the main concourse is a must for photographers. Camera Nikon D700.
