A few photographs taken whilst cycling around London in late March and April as the year turns from Winter to Spring and as the Covid19 lockdown eases in England.
From my collection of photographs I have taken in previous years this one was taken today two years ago in Trafalgar Square. I was struck by the little boy’s red shoes and the approaching pigeons.
Today’s photograph was taken nine years ago in 2014.
When I have visitors come up to London we usually meet at Waterloo Station so I have got to know the area very well over the years, including the Southbank Centre full of corners and alcoves, many of them used for alternative activities, such as skateboarding:
A final photograph taken in Prague on this day in 2016. This one shows the old Jewish Cemetery in Žižkov. Much of the cemetery was destroyed when the Žižkov Television Tower was built almost on top of it in the 1980’s.
On this day 2016, the tram cables in Prague, Czech Republic
A photograph from this day in an earlier year; in this case, 2019, at Upnor on the River Medway in Kent, almost opposite to Chatham.
Today’s photograph was taken on the 6th February 2016, riding the top deck of a bus on a rainy evening. It’s a composite image and I love how it almost looks like a stained glass window!
From my catalogue of photographs this one was taken on the 4th February in 2018 and shows a man walking past some shutters near London Bridge.
This photograph was taken on the 22nd January 2017 and was part of a project looking at what remained of the old railway that ran through the centre of Weymouth, Dorset. The line used to carry trains from the station to the dockside but no trains have run along it since the 1990s, and now much of it has been removed.
