Below are a few nightscapes of Canary Wharf taken from Rotherhithe which is directly across the river.
Below are a few Autumn portraits.
On Monday we headed North for a few days in the beautiful historic city of York. After arriving on a over loaded train (due to several cancellations) the next few days were spent visiting some of the historic sites and doing a little bit of shopping.
We also made the most of my tastecard, eating out at the following restaurants:
- Jorvik Spice
- Cafe Rouge (on Petergate)
- The Piano Restaurant @ The Churchill Hotel
- Gourmet Burger Bar
I would definitely recommend a visit to Jorvik Spice and also the Churchill hotel.
This weekend we headed down to North Greenwich to have a go on the new cable car crossing that runs between North Greenwich and the Royal Docks. I really enjoyed the journey (views up and down the river are spectacular on a clear day) and would say it is a great value-for-money attraction in London. You can even use your oystercard!
A few photographs from the Paralympic games Wheelchair Basketball which took place at the North Greenwich (O2) Arena. I hadn’t been to a Wheelchair Basketball match before and found it to be a great spectator sport mixing amazing skill with dramatic crashes. The best match was watching Great Britain team beat Turkey 75-70.
A few photographs from the month of March 2012.
A few photographs from a beautiful and lazy Saturday afternoon in Greenwich park. The weekend temperature was a welcome improvement from the sub zero temperatures of recent weeks. I suppose the photographs prove that you can take the boy out of the country side, but you can’t take the countryside out of the boy!
Today I headed up the M5 with my brother’s family to visit my sister’s new baby in Cam. Below are a few photographs from the day.
A few family photographs taken during a long weekend away from the city.
