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.

I adore that Poppy picture, the colors are so rich and love the shapes!!
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.
A beautiful photo! A kind of metaphor about the war for me…as if I can only get a glimpse of all that it was and the depth of its tragedy, and yet a fragment can be vivid and profound.

Thank you – and I think I am going to steal that line for the title of the picture – a glimpse of war.
