The Royal Wedding

How could i not comment on the Royal Wedding ? I woke up at 6am (east coast time) , switching on the TV to see Kate Middleton start her walk up the aisle with her Father. She looked stunning ! But how much pressure must she have felt i wonder !? I thought the whole day was a brilliant success, it made me very proud to be British.

God save the future King of England.

My continued love affair with New York

So I find myself back in New York City, hopefully for reason's that will become clearer in the next week or so! Anyway sitting in a well know coffee chain, people watching / watching the world go by as you do, I notice a beautiful building opposite. Normally I would be snapping away, but on this occasion I have left my little camera at home : (

Anyway the Building is what is now Affinia Manhattan.

The most inspiring piece of music and man.

Random Images

My favorites.


The Parish Church of Stoke Newington

This is the house my Grandad was born in 101 Blackstock Road. My Nan & Grandad lived there on the 3rd floor after they got married in 1950 (they have been married 61 years)

London (Continued)


A trip up to London , Camden Market was the 1st ort of call .. then a few childhood memories in other parts of North London. You can see in the photo's what i mean by dull and grey !  ; o )

Southend On Sea

I went back to my home town for a short visit to see family . . .

Most of the time it was dull and grey , but i did however manage to get out and snap a few shots in the winter sunshine.

The View looking back towards Southend On Sea from the end of the pier.

A beautiful Lutyens-designed portland stone memorial with a beautifully kept garden over looking the Thames estuary on top of the cliffs in Clifftown Parade. This memorial commemorates the dead of both the 1st and 2nd World War but contains no names.

One of my most favorite buildings (no idea why)
