I went wandering as I often do when on my way home and found myself in a part of London that I had somehow managed to not really explore. I realised it connected up several other paths I knew well and had an intense feeling of the big city being small. Despite it's outlandish and immense proportions somehow it remains fundamentally human sized. . A surprising but not unpleasant feeling. Ideal for watching people, waves and sunsets for a while perched on Southwark bridge. . . . . . . #london #london_photo #sunset #southwark #southwarkbridge #londonneversleeps #eveninglight #thames #clouds #dramaticclouds #cityskyline #cityscape #contemplation #urban #urbanenvironment #urbanbustle #createandexplore #river #metropolitan #metropolis #urbanevening #uk #uk_photography #pixel2xl #gameoftones #milleniumBridge

100th post (at least of the posts that are currently public... we don't talk about the others ) I started this account just as a silly place to post semi-biographical semi-arty snaps and didn't really think much of it. But now I'm begining to take to the idea of doing this more seriously as a photography project (and poetry? Perhaps? ) Got a bunch of pictures lined up and ideas for more! #selfie #kitchenselfie #toasterselfie #potsandpans #bildungsramble #kitchen #life #lifeupdate #100thpost #london #scarf #ilikethisscarf #💯

22nd of January 2019 It snowed for a minute to remind us all that the world was still turning. The streetlights laughed and held a beauty pageant. #snow #london #traffic #cars #commute #streetlight #nighttime #night #reflections #urban #streetphotography #streetlights #taxi #glisten #wet #wetroads #pixel2xl #snowday #atmosphere #dark #moody #colour #splashofcolour

#night #nighttime #water #light #reflections #tree #park #nature #pixel2xl #london #poetry I see you, foolish shadowcast boy, gazing over rainwashed banks There is joy and light in this world. You breathe the same air as them. Between you there is nothing but distance, and countless natural connections. A web of branches joins and seperates, above echoing depths. Get up, you have a part to play yet.

It's a new dawn, it's a new day. Just like every other day. But this dawn is extra new. Have you heard? Can you feel it? They took all the hopes, pains, fears and feats, of the last 365 days. They ran the numbers. Balanced out the colours. Finished the sums, and tallied the remainder. Drew a line. Put it in a box. Sealed and marked with black powder and dye. Stick it on the wall, call it a calendar. It will stay there, safely at least. Can you feel it? Do you feel extra new? #2019 #newyear #nyd #londonnewyearsdayparade #lnydp #lnydp2019 #parade #marchingband #howlinhuskies #london #westminster #poetry #newyearspoem #crowds #extranew #calendar #🎇 #🥁 #🗓️

It was a cold grey day down London way. So naturally time to break out the comically oversized turtleneck jumper. (From last weekend ) #winter #wintry #cold #walks #selfie #turtleneck #whydoialwayslooksotired

Active day of chores & sorting my life out in little ways. Feeling good about my personal situation compared with last year. Feeling less good about everything in the news these days. At least walking (and listening to music ) is still honest.
