It was a foggy day in London, and the fog was heavy and dark. Animate London, with smarting eyes and irritated lungs, was blinking, wheezing, and choking; inanimate London was a sooty spectre, divided in purpose between being visible and invisible, and so being wholly neither.
- "Our Mutual Friend" by Charles Dickens
It's the weekend!!! And for the first time in five weeks I'm happy that it is. My half-term remedy starts today so there's no (urgent) work to be done. There's no rugby. I can chill. I caught an amazing sunrise yesterday. Phil Bebbington is back. My beloved uncle is coming to visit on Sunday. I might get a new camera over these holidays. I can get out to the city and finally indulge in some serious street photography. I must hunt for a black cab to face up to Alistair's challenge. I can.....
So as you've figured out by now, I'm in a good mood today. So what's up with this shot and the quote by Dahl's Chickens (Let's see which one of you lucky viewers knows the name of the man who coined that term)? Well to be honest, I don't know. Partly I posted it for Mia. Partly, I guess that I really like London and I think that the smoggy feel interspersed by bright sunny spells really adds to the charm of the city.
Anyway, I hope you guys have a great weekend.
