A photo (or three) a day for 2012.

Passing through Golders Green on the way home…

A pleasingly symmetrical station sign within Golders Green Tube station…

…and some colourful bouquets of flowers outside…and yes, that is the photographer’s shadow in the bottom right-hand corner;).

And my bus stop, outside the Refectory pub and Hotel Unique, on the far side of the road.


A generous half-pint at Golders Green…and caught in a thunderstorm at the North Circular…

The Refectory at Golders Green…and the dark band at the top is the railway bridge carrying the line into the Tube station.

At the bar, I’d ordered a pint of Kronenbourg, only to find that the tap ran dry two-thirds of the way up the pint-glass, so I was charged for only a half-pint. The football, by the way, was today’s game Swansea City 3 West Ham 0, with a Sky match commentary in a language which I assumed to be Welsh, and a following studio discussion in English! Very strange…

After leaving the pub, I wandered northwards to Finchley. Nearing the North Circular Road, a thunderstorm developed, and, drenched, I mused that maybe an 82 or 460 bus would have been a better option 😉

Another excursion (to a TCM warehouse) in Dollis Hill…

Not far from Finchley Central, en route to Golders Green, on this 82 bus….

I’ve passed this building on a number of occasions, on the way to my Dollis Hill destination, but until today I’d not known who Gina Bacconi was…well, Gina Bacconi is a women’s fashion house apparently…

The Refectory pub, Golders Green, a building that I’m rather fond of…although that doesn’t mean I spend a lot of time drinking there ;).

Ten Years After…a sentimental journey ;)

The Refectory, Golders Green, London NW11.


Bus ride to Ekong, TCM Wholesalers, Dollis Hill, NW2.


Pitman's, formerly Dr Elizabeth Chang, Ballards Lane, N12, where I first met XQ in January 2002 :).
