As you’ve probably deduced from the title of this post, this is, really, an ode to London. I’m fiercely proud of the fact that I’m a Londoner, born and raised in SW London; I spent my teenage years hanging on the King’s Road, Chelsea, where I now work, and I have a knowledge of short cuts to rival any cabbie.
And I’m also fiercely proud of the fact that my son is a Londoner, born and raised here too. I love that so many people from all different backgrounds live here; the culture, heritage and history; the breathtaking views from the river and incredible architecture. I never, ever get tired of it, and even though I travel a lot I’m always happy to come home.
Sometimes, I do fantasise about what it would be like to move to the seaside, but the truth is I can’t really imagine living anywhere else. I’d miss it too much.
So this is my post for my beautiful city, London, for Tara’s gallery. The theme this week is ‘a favourite place.’ Well apart from this photo, which I snapped from the top of a London bus last week, I’ve put together a little slide show – some of these photos you may have seen before, some are new, because you never run out of photo opportunities in London. I hope you like it.
