  1. Great photos! You have a really strong sense of light and it really comes through in your photographs. I especially love the image of the mosque in the twilight. It’s beautiful. Is this a bustling part of London? I don’t know peep about your city. Also, are the spikes on the footbridge meant to impale people meaning to commit suicide?

    • thanks Mike, Well these are mostly fairly domestic photos. Near work and near home, not bustling exactly.

      Westbourne is near Notting Hill, where you get off to go to Portobello market, one of the most famous junk markets in London.
      It is bustling depending on the day and the street.

      You know i never thought of the footbridge being rigged like that to prevent suicide. But you are right. Its so people probably dont climb up it and hurl themselves on the track. Strange how you look at something nearly everyday and don’t notice it.

  2. Shoes on a wire used to indicate that a drug dealer lived nearby. You and I have the same kind of plants– carniverous ones and those grafted euphorbia that look like prickly penises. Happy holidays to you!

    • wow that is a complicated way to tell if there is a drug dealer. i’m always puzzled by shoes chucked on top of bus stops. i wonder what poor guy had his chucked. these seem to be pairs so maybe it was a celebratory thing or to get rid of old ones?
