Going underground

Going underground

If you know me or have meet me ever, even for a short while. I’m sure that you have heard my rant about the Tube aka the underground public transport in London. I had to endure it the other day, lucky I only have to use this horrid thing once every three to four months. How can people do this every day, TWICE or even more ….. oh here I go starting my rant, I’ll get off my soap box.

Kerb crawlers

Kerb crawlers

Also “fondly” known as Chutney.

Yes they do look beautiful, wonderful colours and are just begging to be kicked about. Though do be careful: if they are wet they are as good as an ice rink. After a fall a few years ago where these little blighter took the front wheel away and I came down hard, wet leafs are now known as Chutney. Because of the mango coloured bicycle I was on was called that and the mess I have hit looked a bit like some too.

Autumn vs. Fall

Autumn vs. Fall

This is a bit like the old tomato, aluminium and nike etc. thing. I say fall because the leafs are falling or is it because my English teacher picked the US version or because I have watched too many US sitcoms. But if it is the latter, why the heck do I say all the other words in the Queen English?

Anywhoo, what ever you call it, I’m about to bore you a bit with some photos of the season.

Street party

Street party

Even though I was working yesterday it was good to see the street parties, when I went to and from work. I think I saw at least eight street parties. Best of all the roads were empty and the parks too, so it really felt like I was alone out there.

So we just need to get Charles to take over from Liz and then Jr to take over from Charles and the happy royal couple breeding fast. We will then have a few parties in fast succession, three coronations, a few baptising (they tend to breed these royals) and then some weddings when the little rascals have grown up.

Oh it will also get something else on the coins, notes and stamps it is getting a bit boring to see Liz every time 😉

night bus

Night time is my favourite time

Love it when the city wakes up at night, the lights, people and sounds. I spend a fair bit of time taking night-time photos, nothing special just point and shoot.

Like this photo I took while running across the road to get to the car my mate was picking me up in. While waiting on the middle reservation for the bus to pass. I just took my camera out of the bag and snapped this quick snap.

The result just says London by night to me.
