DJ - plaited!
This post is in two sections.  The first bit are a few images of here and there, seen on my travels.

Outside the Natural History Museum is one of the skaters sites.

Inside Baker St Underground ... for those who have known me some time, DJ was the Connemara I had on loan, who was also my namesake.  So I presume this is a Farrier's!!

When I lived in Upminster (end of the district line!), Mum was a Tupperware manager for 3 years, and her HQ was in Stratford .  She and I got to know our way round the roads back in the 70's ... we wouldn't manage to cope now.  This is where the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park was built

When I was a kid at school, everyone (except my 2 brothers) were West Ham supporters

I absolutely love your photos! The skating site ones are my faves, I think.

Thank you - I can't skate, but seeing scenes like that I wish I could!

These photographs are wonderful. If you don't mind me asking, what kind of camera do you have? Ours just died and I'm in the market for a new on.

Thanks - I have a Nikon D3100 .... a DSLR. My first camera I had in 1979 was a Nikon, and as I was happy with that, then the SLR I had for years I have stuck with the make.

Good luck with the hunt.

I miss London. I haven't been there in ages. Lovely pics, Deb.

What is the one (building, sculpture, roller coaster?) that looks like a really complicated roller coaster? I would surely spew if I rode it!

Thanks - it is a great city, isn't it? Recently I had tried going each year till I I had M&D to care for, and had really missed it.

The structure is now a slide ... which I love, but not for the price of £15!!!!

You've ridden it!?! I would never attempt it - I have motion sickness.

Good for you being so brave!

I think architecture took a nosedive in the 1950's in Britain but I have to say I really do like more recent buildings. We seem to be getting better at it, these photos show that. Lovely. :)

As one of the other places I visited this trip was The Natural History museum (photos to follow) I think that building is stunning.
