A trip to South Kensington…

The Hoop and Toy pub, in Thurloe Place, SW7

A flying, late afternoon, visit to the Natural History Museum

Sightly bemused to see these London 2012 Games Vehicles parked up outside the V & A Museum…


London 2012 Olympians and Paralympians Parade

Last day of the London Olympics…Marathon spectating

An Irishman, from County Kerry apparently, after performing a jig for spectators outside Waterstone’s, near Trafalgar Square.

A precarious viewing platform. on top of a postbox, in Northumberland Avenue.

A welcome pint for me, watching the finish of the race, at a free viewing in the Royal Festival Hall.

Three random snapshots in London in August ;).

Side of a tourist stall near Charing Cross station…

Another manifestation of the London 2012 mascot, this one, Novel Wenlock, behind St-Martin-in-the-Fields Church, in Adelaide Street.

An interesting looking Burlesque act, performing on the South Bank in December 2012, here advertised in the Priceless London Wonderground, near the London Eye.

More Olympics…women’s volleyball quarter-final at Earl’s Court: Japan beat China, 3 sets to 2…

Volleyball at Earl’s Court guide, Olympic ticket, and travelcard…

Entrance to the venue…with very strict security measures inside.

A very close match, with Japan saving a couple of Chinese match points in the fifth set, before going on to win themselves.

Wembley Stadium, Olympic Women’s Football semi-final: France 1 Japan 2…some lovely Japanese fans :)

Before the match, outside the ground, three beautifully dressed women in traditional clothes.

After the match, inside the ground, two very happy Japanese fans :).

After the match, outside the ground, a pairing of traditional and modern :).

Dusk, and beyond, on the Thames…

From Westminster Bridge, a view downstream…

‘Underwater Wenlock’, outside the London Aquarium on the South Bank.

View of the South Bank, from Hungerford Bridge.

A dramatic Petersfield sky, a South Bank whirly-gig…and Jessica in excelsis

Taken through a train window at Petersfield station, en route from Portsmouth to Waterloo this evening…

A South Bank whirly-gig, in the Priceless London Wonderground, not far from the London Eye.

I can’t speak for anyone else, but I witnessed the climax to Jessica’s¬†wondrous gold-winning Olympic performance, in the company of several dozen other noisy and enthusiastic souls, in this free showing at the Royal Festival Hall this evening…and what a way it was to win a gold medal…or three ;).

An evening indoors…so, just a couple of household paintings, and some televisual Olympics…

Red flowers in a bowl…

Watergate Bay, on the north Cornwall coast, with fond memories of some holidays at nearby Mawgan Porth ten and more years ago :).

The wonderful Jessica Ennis, awaiting the start of her 200m race in the Women’s Heptathlon at the London 2012 Olympics.



From a quietish Covent Garden…to anything but at Stratford Westfield…

The South Hall at Covent Garden Piazza, late morning today.

Another Wenlock, this one, Flower Seller Mandeville, in Covent Garden Piazza.
