Life in London... Through the Lens

During the visit of Mum & her partner, we managed to get around all sorts of parts of London and I found myself getting a little snap-happy before forgetting that I do live here and do not have to capture every moment tourist-style...and I got all sorts of fab shots but there are some particular faves I want to share (or rather show-off about)...check these out!

I loved the lonely Narnia-style streetlamp in Lewes...

...this snippet of English quaintness in Fleet Street from the top deck of the hop-on-hop-off bus...

...the wicked reflection of this building down a side street opposite The Old Shades in the previous shot (so stoked the pic turned out!)...

...crossing Tower Bridge...things are looking up...

...the Elephant at the Tower (of London)...

...the slightly faded show of English support (not unlike their World Cup performance actually?!)...

...another taste of Narnia finding Aslan in repose at Trafalgar Square...

...as well as the message in a bottle on the 4th plinth...

...and finally the long & winding road/path through Richmond Park.

How could I possibly live anywhere else when surrounded by such inspiration?

And speaking of inspiration, it has come to that special time of year where I must remind you that there are only 28 shopping days before my first birthday since that 'big one' last year.  That's 28 days to be inspired by some interesting, thoughtful and completely unnecessary gift..what a gift it is indeed for you to have a partner/daughter/sister/ friend/et al so helpful in jogging your memory about such important occasions...

Only 29 sleeps to go...
