I popped down to Westminster this afternoon to catch the Tour. It was due at 3.40, arrived well past 4. And being July in England, a light rain fell on us for much of the time, as we waited. But it was good to be there.
Here are a few photos. As the peleton arrived it was just a question of pressing the photo button again and again and seeing what turned up. The cyclists absolutely flashed by. No way you could say, there’s Sagan, or Froome, or Contador. Half of the photos were the back of people’s heads. So there’s a lot of cropping here, which has slightly altered the focus. Still, you get the impression…
While we waited.
After work, I walked up to Green Park to catch the tube home. I wanted to see the Fan Park. It looked like it might have been fun in the afternoon. I liked this shot on the Mall though. Norbert Dentressangle is clearly a big man for the Tour as it moves from stage to stage. Here with the Union flag.
France and Britain – we love each other really!
