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 ;).
