lovelondonscenes – 49

I was walking over London Bridge at 9.30 in the morning yesterday, on a day off, to meet friends for breakfast at Roast in Borough Market. The mist was rising from the Thames as the sun started to assert its rights. The combination was beautiful. I got my iPhone out and took a few shots. I could hardly see what I was taking – always a problem with the big screens when the sun is shining. Oh for view finders! A man in a pin stripe suit stopped and said to me, “I hope you’ll show the world those photos”. I didn’t tell him all about – maybe I should have. But the encounter just showed that we were all marvelling at the sheer beauty of the scene. My shots can’t capture what the human eye witnessed, but I still quite like them…

Tower Bridge and HMS Belfast.



The Shard.



And at Roast, the Full Scottish. Haggis included. Yum!
