Friday Flashback #083 …

Another British river, but this time from York. I loved York on my first visit … it’s winding cobblestone streets made me feel like I was walking on history every step of the way. I also really enjoyed the remaining segments of the Roman wall around the city and walked all 3 of them. I’m going to try and pop in for a brief visit while I’m in northern England, just for a day, but York definitely deserves a second, longer visit from me someday.

I love this view from the Southbank area of London, looking past the restored OXO building to St. Paul’s Cathedral and beyond. This is my favorite part of London, from about Westminster Bridge all the way up to the Tower Bridge. This photo is also at high tide for the Thames. And, oh! Those Clouds and plane contrails! I can’t wait to go back.

While Parliament seems mired in confusion and disarray these days, there’s always a glimmer of hope when you see this statue of Winston Churchill outside of that august assembly of buildings. Maybe someday soon a Churchill-like figure will rise to unite the country again and displace the blond-headed bozo currently masquerading as PM.

That’s enough political commentary for this blog. That’ll do, pic.

Friday Flashback #080 …

I’m traveling back to the UK soon (Brexit be damned), so in honor of my favorite fall vacation place, the next few weeks will feature photos from last year’s trip to England.

I stumbled upon this used bookstore in the Marylebone section of town and just had to snap a photo of its picturesque exterior. Books (and magazines) still seem to be a much more important part of British life, a quality that endears the UK even more to me.

Friday Flashback #079 …

Okay, this one isn’t really a flashback. It’s a newbie. If you follow my Instagram account (@gg92118), you would have seen this recently. But it’s quickly become one of my favorite photos, so I decided to share it on here, too.

It was a perfect autumn night. I had just left one of my favorite San Diego restaurants, Bankers Hill and came across this beautiful sunset. As I walked to my car, I turned and saw the combination of the blue-orange-pink sky with this orangeish building on the corner of 5th Ave. and Ivy, and there it was … magic (if I do say so myself).
