The Price of One – Short Story on Scarlet Leaf Review

The Price of One – my ghost story / lyrical tour around London’s South Bank is in this month’s online edition of Scarlet Leaf Review.

The narrator is dead, and still very much in love. When a street vendor offers him a potion that brings him temporarily to life he and his heartbroken paramour grasp it with both hands.

Please head over there, give it a read, show it some love.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Window

Weekly Photo Challenge: Window

The theme for the week is Window.

There is an odd duplication in photographing through a window, as the viewfinder constrains the breadth and scope that can be captured, and a window compresses this further.

This is taken from Southwark Bridge, there are concrete port holes at chin height all along the bridge. They pre date most of the redevelopment of London, both on the north and south banks, and so whether you see empty sky or an interesting vista is a matter of chance.
