Life through the Lens (17 January 2021)

When my eyesight was still good, I was a bit of an amateur photographer. This is one of mine.

  1. One of the things that amazed me about my trip to London was how spotless clean St James park was. Even the copper pipes in the loo (spelling?) were polished so bright you could see yourself in them. A far cry from American parks. Also met a guy who was feeding birds out of his hand. I wanted a picture but instead he put seeds in my hand and let me feed them as well. My wife and I loved London…would like to come back.

    1. Yes I think this must be the most well-kept park, we often used to go there for lunch, and I would feed the squirrels (until one bit me!) What amazed me was that you would see, like bedding plants, in bloom in December, and you realised that they probably grew then in greenhouses, then transplanted them to the flower beds every week.
      At lunch, you’d often see well-known politicians walk past, because it is so close to Westminster. I’m sure that was why, but maybe I’m just a cynic? Your spelling is perfect.
