Musée d'Orsay - people watching
The great thing about a big city, and a public place, is the people of diverse nationalities that frequent them. This Japanese lady was in the entrance of the Musée d'Orsay. Only later did I see the other lady behind her and looking in the opposite direction.
On the way to a Don McCuillin exhibition in the Tate Britain, we met Julian Wynne in the Victoria Park Gardens near Lambeth Bridge. One of life's true gentleman who was at a loss as to where good manners had disappeared to over the years.
The Bus - people watching
We were on my way to the Tate Britain to see an photography exhibition by Don McCullin. I took this on the bus and it was interesting to see that no one made any sort of eye contact with each other. Is this a big city thing or the norm in most places? Whatever it is, it's a sad reflection on today's society.
After taking early retirement at the end of January 2012, I made my way down the country ending up in London for a weekend with my boys, Stephen & Luke. This was one of a number of shots taken at the magnificent Borough Market.
Telephone Box #1
These iconic British telephone boxes, designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, first appeared in London in 1926. There are still a few in use around the UK and abroad too; in Gibraltar, Malta and Bermuda.
