City of lights...


It was Guy Fawkes night here in London town but I missed sighting that... however ... I was down on the river on dusk at the Tate and did see this as I walked in through the Riverside Entrance.




Forgive me this flying post... no details... nor posting many photos I took but could have added...




This was my photographic version of walking across the Millennium Bridge



and this is a few nights ago at Sloane Square.... tonight I could have taken a fab shot of Harrods all lit up but I was a bit slow on the uptake.

... city of lights?

Well... in fact... I'm jumping on the Eurostar to the City of lights across the Channel tomorrow at 8.30am... only staying a night... got so much happening back here... what can a girl do!

have not been there for 23 years ... 2 whole days is better than not going I reckon! Don't you?

My lovely afternoon today I have to tell you was at Borough Market... don't remember that all those years ago... what a lovely surprise it was to visit. Monmouth's coffee... being able to order a flat white... I was  blissed out. Speaking of which... Princi, Soho now, has to be the best thing since... if you like what Italians do with fire,waiter and flour!!!! More on that later.

Gotta get some shut-eye...
ciao lovelies!

Oh the memories! Remembering the Shakespeare's Head, a pub in Soho. The is a window which you can't miss, with Shakespeare looking out.
Love the lights at Harrods!

It has been over 20 years since I was in London. I'm sure I wouldn't recognize a thing. And the same length for Paris. See it all lady. See it all. And capture those memories in your brain for the future and those rainy days when you need a little inspiration.
