Ed suggested I grab my tripod and camera this evening and use his 50mm lens (mine is missing at present) and record a video to try and capture some of the lighting we could see from his top floor flat in South East London. We got lucky and in one of the many videos I [...]

On the 31st May 2014,¬†Maria had kindly paid for us to go see the view from the Shard. After queuing for half an hour, the two lifts up both only lasted thirty seconds to cover about thirty floors each. But it’s worth it, we must have spent a couple of hours up there trying to [...]

Finally went to the¬†Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew this Easter weekend with Maria and her parents. Had wanted to go since last year, so it’s good to finally see what it’s like and how large it is first hand. Below are a few photos. I should bring my Mum here some time as she would probably [...]

Travel in London

Having commuted and travelled around London for over a month now I have come to the conclusion that not having a smartphone puts you at such a disadvantage in terms of knowing how to get around that it could almost be considered de facto that you need a smartphone to live in London. […]

Christmas shopping

Christmas shopping has been so much easier this year. I had most of it done a few weeks ago and the last of the items arrived with a couple of days to spare. In the past I used to end up doing it on Christmas Eve, but being in London has made it much easier [...]

International Space Station

While I was in London a while back, the International Space Station was making a few passes overhead for a few nights when it was clear. Looking out of an upstairs window in West London towards the west, for the first time I got to see the ISS with my naked eye as it moved [...]

Final batch of photo’s from my trip to London is from Greenwich. Maria had treated me by taking me to the Visions of the Universe exhibition and Royal Observatory. Before that we stopped off at the Cutty Sark, which was underwhelming compared to the HMS Belfast, but as we brought a single ticket for all [...]
