Whetstone reflections, High Street Kensington and the South Bank revisited…
(Inverted) tree and moon reflected in the pond in Swan Lane Open Space, Whetstone…
Smart area of London is Kensington, and perhaps reflected here in the entrance to High Street Kensington Tube station… 😉
View at the junction of Kensington Church Street and High Street Kensington…
Standing on Hungerford Bridge, looking towards the Royal Festival Hall, and to its left, The Shard, London’s tallest building, a couple of miles distant near London Bridge…
The Friday Tonic, a free gig in the Clore Ballroom of the Royal Festival Hall most Fridays, between 5.30 pm and 7.00 pm, and this week featuring the Soothsayers… 🙂
And if you wander back towards Waterloo station from the Royal Festival Hall, you’ll probably pass by Archdukes at the top of Concert Hall Approach (and notice the Boris Bikes in the foreground, a latter-day feature of the London landscape) ;).

So interesting! Of course I love the tree! The Soothsayers play Reggae? I can see how this might be a Friday afternoon tonic! Good thing that all of the stations are so nicely decorated for the holidays, because you seem to be doing a lot of commuting. 🙂
Thankyou :). Yes, the Soothsayers did play some reggae yesterday, but their music is more eclectic than that, with jazz, salsa, dub and other influences. I’ve heard a lot of music at the Royal Festival Hall over the years, and the great thing about the Festival Hall is that there are a lot of opportunities to not only listen to good music for free, but there are often art, photography and other exhibitions on display there that are also free :).
That’s great! It sounds like our City Gallery http://citygalleryatwaterfrontpark.com/ and Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art http://halsey.cofc.edu/.
Thanks a lot for the links; I’ll have a closer look at the Exhibitions pages later, I’ve a little Christmas shopping to do in the meantime ;).
Wonderfully atmospheric tree in the first pic. Is it just me who has trouble scrolling down on pages with snow, without it jumping back up to the top? A running site I go on also has snow, and is problematic too!
Thankyou, and it may be that the falling snow has that effect, so I’ve now disabled it…let me know if that’s solved the problem :).
You didn’t need to turn it off, it’s just an observation 🙂
Hmmm…but did disabling it solve your scrolling problem? I’m just curious to know :).
