Minimalist London

IMG_1308

As a North Londoner I am having to make a slight geographical adjustment, the South Bank is not South London. The Sarf, is a barely habitable hinterland populated by barbarians and connected by nonsensically curving roads. Horse and cart country in the space age. The South Bank is a vibrant enclave of architecture and culture, with odd artistic gestures thrown in.

The block in the above serves no purpose. It just is. Perhaps the South Bank does share some characteristics with South London after all.

The mayor’s office is a lopsided little folly, and it is approached by way of this grey amphitheatre.

And then of course, because I was wondering around on the 11th of the 11th I hopped over the bridge to look at some poppies.

    • Thanks. There’s another random poppy pic on my cross cultural living post, and I really ought to reprise my fbook album of all the tower of London pictures on my blog. One day. Eventually.
