iphonelondonscenes – 10

This is the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad’s Cathedral of the Dormition of the Mother of God and the Royal Martyrs. Catchy name! It’s in Gunnersbury, just by the A4, where it joins the M4. Hemmed in by a railway, a dual carriageway and some distinctly downbeat housing. But I love the way that blue dome sticks out defiantly, rising above its humdrum surroundings. I cycle past it frequently, as I’m coming back from my cycle to Putney Bridge along the Thames, and always wonder how it got there…

About John S

I'm blogging about the things I love: music, sport, culture, London, with some photos to illustrate aspects of our wonderful city. I’ve written a novel called “The Decision”, a futuristic political thriller, and first of a trilogy. I’m also the author of a book on music since the 1970s called “ I Was There - A Musical Journey” and a volume of poetry about youth, “Growin’ Up - Snapshots/ Fragments”. All available on Amazon and Kindle.
