Have you ever been asked what do you do with all your photos? As a mountaineer who loves to take photos, like many, I have thousands of photos stored and gathering dust, some are naff some are ok.
They cover a wide range of activities in fact anything that gives me an excuse to go walking, scrambling, mountaineering.
Hopefully there will still be something for everyone, if anyone wants to contribute feel free.
Remember each photo has its own story and this is my way of putting them to use.
once again variety is the name of the game so heres something
completely different, yes a city walk, hope you like the photos.
am not a big fan of London, when we had a request a request to assist
offspring move house from Lewisham to Sevenoaks I volunteered and
thus accruing ‘Brownee points’ with that fictitious God that
still lives in the back of my mind.
tight agenda allows us a few hours for a London walk, bags dumped at
a building site on Black Friars Bridge, long story.
is a lot of pretention in this world, of which the Tate Modern, our
first stop, has more than its fair share. I love the irony of a
magnificent cathedral scale building housing the gallery, its
artistic contents paling into insignificance, tucked into little
corners of the great wide open spaces .
like to think I have an modicom of artistic appreciation BUT the only
exhibits I found remotely interesting are a couple of old black and
white prints of 1970's Newcastle. Like many before me I have to ask
what is the point of it all. In these days of austerity could we not
find a better way of using the £86 million yearly running costs of
the Tate Modern.
am keen to get some photos of the city from a high level vantage
point, one of the reasons for visiting the Tate was to gain entry to
the roof gallery, a very impressive viewpoint and popular
over the Millenium Bridge towards St Pauls, its heaving with,
humanity the more I see of humanity the more I love my dog, well if I
had a dog!!!!!
decided one of the few things I like about London is St Pauls it got
class, its a pleasure to sit at its base taking a water break,
watching a big screen of the Brownlee brothers winning gold and
silver in the triathelon, more class!!!!!!!
too soon our brief window to explore is over, we are whisked off to
Lewishan for 2 hard days labour, Gardening, house cleaning,
decoratiing and furniture moving.
