Mile End Underground Station, East London
As with many towns and cities here in the UK, the River Ness flows right through the middle of the City of Inverness, the Capital of the Highlands in North-East Scotland.
A group of small natural islands within the main body of the river linked by footbridges together create a lovely winding woodland walk across from one side of the town to the other enjoyed by kids and adults alike, and I thought I’d share some of the views here… 🙂
Not quite sure what was going on here with these dolls hanging in a window advertising for both male hair models and a Saturday assistant in Spitalfields Market, East London, but I for one found the whole ensemble more than a little creepy 🙂
One of my favourite Cajun dishes is Jambalaya – a satisfying spicy mix of rice and several different meats and veg – and personally I find the rich smoky flavour of this large potful cooked by my husband’s cousin on a wood fire in the back yard pretty damned hard to beat 🙂
The London I live in can sometimes look like a well-heeled, prosperous city rich with colour, bright and shining, vibrant with promise. But at other times it appears to be undeniably grey and grimy, with a kind of sad shabbiness borne of generations of poverty and neglect.
I’m experimenting in trying to capture creatively that slightly darker, starker mood of some of the not-so-pretty everyday street scenes, as shown in these few images, all taken locally in Leytonstone, East London… 🙂
What grabbed my attention first with this Daihatsu Copen was its vibrant yellow paintwork, closely followed by its tiny size for a sports car – and luckily for me it seems to be a perfect contender for this week’s Sunday Stills Challenge 🙂
