iphonelondonscenes – 01

Thought I’d start a new series of photos snapped on my iPhone – still languishing on a version 3 at the moment. Daily scenes – never mind the quality, feel the place. With apologies in advance for likely bias towards West and central London, but I’ll try to branch out from time to time.

Normally I’ll just post one photo, but today, for starters, I thought I’d have two. Contrasting sporting scenes.

This is the Ealing Half Marathon, which finished in our local park, Lammas Park. I caught it after the elite had finished, but credit to everyone who took part.

And then, a scene from my favourite bike ride: from Kew Bridge down to Putney Bridge along the Thames towpath – and then back home via Fulham, Hammersmith and Chiswick. At Putney there are loads of boathouses. In the background here you can see Fulham’s football ground, Craven Cottage, and in the distance, Wembley stadium, which is miles away. A bend in the river and no tall buildings allow a glimpse of the national stadium.

Shan’t commit to every day, but will try for as many days as possible.

Back soon!

About John S

I'm blogging about the things I love outside work: music, sport, culture, London, with some photos to illustrate aspects of our wonderful city. And anything else that I happen to think is worth writing about!

    Nice pics, and a great idea for posts!
    Resa here from my street art blog (not attached in any way to the street art blog that sent you a million emails in one day)
    What is the saying? A picture says a thousand words?
    I am chomping at the bit to design another “Art Gown”., but I don’t have the time while I’m working on this mini-series. In the meantime,I take pics.
    You take wonderful pics, and I look forward to all. _Resa xo
