The Blue Hour 2

Wikipedia says it’s “the period of twilight each morning and evening when the sun is a significant distance below the horizon and the residual, indirect sunlight takes on a predominantly blue hue” .
Neither full daylight nor complete darkness, these 40 minutes are pure bliss.
Chase the blue, seize this hour! Plenty in London.

Thames low tide

Low tide. Very low tide. @ that North Greenwich beach where very few tourists dare to go.

Wharf Romance

Love story...

Love story…

The first thought that came to my mind: How did they get there? No, wait, that was the second thought. The first one was: Awww, how sweet. And then the rest: Is it facing the right direction? Are the fonts alright? What about the wind?

The truth is that I want to hear/see the ending. Or at least the continuation.

Oh no, I’m not Georgie.
Exactly, who’s Georgie?

Upstream Wild Suburbia

Father, kid, pram, river bank, sun & clouds

Father, kid, pram, river banks, sun & clouds

From Hammersmith Bridge walk upstream on the North bank to Barnes Bridge. Miles of blackberry bushes, pubs with a past, alluring riverbeds, tufted ducks, underwood, planes, moored boats and beagles bathing. On the South bank, walk past Mortlake Stag Brewery, and along the Kew Gardens. Incidentally posh or clammy, but mainly green and bucolic, 8 miles of pastoral joy worth finishing in style with chips and London Pride on Richmond Green, far from the maddening city.
