Metropolis And The Dungeon

Back from down south, and a jolly few days it was. It is, however, odd down there : a bit like a cross between Disneyland and a spare set from Fritz Lang's "Metropolis". On the Thursday, I went up to London ("up to town" as they say) and took a nostalgic route march around some of the places I frequented when I lived in London 40 years ago. I couldn't help noticing that my first workplace - County Hall - has now been rebranded as the London Dungeon and promises "misery, torture, gloom and despondency" within. As they say, plus ├ža change .....

I will try and feature some of the photographs I took whilst I was in London during the coming week - I took my newly acquired Little Nik with me to road test it properly. Today's two were taken in St James's Park.


  1. Love the B&W for the wonderful shading it gives. Can't wait to see what else you come up with!

  2. Great shots. Love St James's Park - so much to it, the views are great and the surrounding areas full of interest.

  3. Old people and young; exactly what a park should be.

  4. Love the concept of the London Dungeon.

  5. I read about a pub called Two Chairmen earlier today and thought of you.
    Your new camera takes some great photos! :)

  6. Looks like a very interesting and lovely place.
