Side strides

Angel walk

The side street of Angel, Islington

Walking London’s side streets on a sunny autumn day.
Rewarding.
In so many shapes and colours.

Upstream: From Bridge to Bridge

Try this on a sunny Sunday afternoon:  walk on the south bank from Putney Bridge to Hammersmith Bridge. Start around 4 pm (in summer, 1 pm in winter) to make the most of the sun. And sunsets. At Hammersmith Bridge cross and stop at a river pub, get some more sun while hugging some zingy blonde ale. When appropriate to leave, bid goodbye and walk on the north bank back to Putney. The sun sets on your right side, and will warm your back. I’m not gonna tell you much about what you’ll see along this rather short but mighty walk. But yes, it’s a story with gardens, forests, new developments, old pubs, palaces, churches, swans, wild ducks, boats and strolling humans. Joy! I mean, enjoy!

Chasing lasers

exhibition in London

#digitalrevolution @Barbican

You don’t have to be a digital guru to enjoy this exhibition. Au contraire.
I have a scratched ancient generation Nokia, the cheapest Kubik mp3 and the most basic Chromebook. But I still enjoyed whispering to butterflies, playing a radio-piano, growing wings and chasing lasers.
