Today was autumn’s collision with winter, as the clocks went back. But it was also a lovely sunny day and not too cold. A respite after rain, rain, rain. I took the Piccadilly Line up to King’s Cross and walked from there back to Paddington along the Regent’s Canal. The walk, which is not that long, takes you through Camden, Regent’s Park and Maida Vale, including Little Venice. The photos here, turned into black and white, are from the stretch between King’s Cross and Camden, starting around Coal Drop Yard. A lot of it is relatively new development – this is an area transformed. A place you want to come to rather than avoid. Urban beauty.
